Choosing the right sports betting platform for the Nigerian Market

Look, I understand, starting a successful sports betting company is a complicated and lengthy process. But, to provide you guys with as much value as possible, I’m going to help speed up that process and show you how you can do it. I realized there is no content on the internet that is actually talking about this in details when it comes to Nigeria and the African market and So I have decided to create this Blog post to help empower and potentially wholly shift the way investors, Ceos and Directors of a soon to be launched sports betting company think.

There are so many people fronting in conferences, seminars these days acting like they ’re thought leaders in this business So I can understand if finding the right person to lead a company to succeed can be an issue. That’s why these below few points are critical to check before you sign up that deal with a sportsbook provider.

1. Know the difference between a white label and a turnkey sportsbook software: A lot of people don't know the difference, and this always leads them into a real big issue in the near future.

Consider a 'white label' to be a branch of a tree, and anything you do with a branch of a tree affects the whole tree and consider a 'turnkey' to be the entire tree. When you cut a tree, trim it or do whatever you want to do with, that does not affect another tree beside it.

What I'm saying, in essence, is that, when you are using a ' white label' software, small changes take months if not a year to be applied, because there are a lot of branches within the main software you will be licensed to use. And making changes to yours will affect other companies also. The only to solve this issue is to understand what your needs are and go for the right software. Not to say white label software is terrible but it's not suitable for the Nigerian market, considering that most softwares are developed to suit the European market. For a company to succeed in Nigeria, the platform must be adjusted, re-developed to accommodate the Nigeria customers' experience, which most softwares out there don't generally have until its re-engineered.

2. Understand the business structure, know where your company wants to focus on. Is it retail? Online? Or both? Retail is currently 70% of the Nigerian gaming business, so when considering a sports book provider, check if they have any real experience on retail, and how many companies are currently using this software in Africa. This is very important, I'm sorry to say, but most software providers just want your business, they won't tell you the truth whether their software is right or not, it's your job to do the research on them to make an informed decision.

3. When you understand this, then you need to have a team in place headed by a CEO who actually knows what he is doing, who at least have a proven record in the Nigerian gaming scene or any other country but with a proven record and very open to new ideas. 

When you have gotten the right software, don't forget that you need to take things slow, first to the market doesn't mean the biggest in the market.

Things take time, and you need to plan for that. I believe that instant stardom is actually a huge vulnerability.

But the issue is, people see others getting ahead in the short term at the expense of their long-term personal brand. And so, they get tricked. For example, I'm launching a sports betting company soon, and with massive followers of 230,000 on social media, it's easy for me to overgrow, but this is a brand that I have built over 7 years.

Instead of being patient, a lot of companies go for quick sales, huge marketing from day 1. They keep trying to convert customers on the first interaction. They try to extract money instead of creating an experience. 

If you do things right in this industry, you will win, and you will last long.

I'm writing this based on my experience both as a formal employee of a betting company and also as someone who co-founded a betting company and is about to start another one.

I wish you all the best!

I live my life based on gratitude

I live my life based on gratitude yes! I see every situation as an opportunity to be grateful. growing up wasn't easy not because we were very poor but because my dad is a disciplinarian that won't want his kids to have everything in abundance which sincerely, i used to hate him for but when i got older i realised that he did it for the best. i have no regrets about those hard days infact im grateful that i had those days because thats is the only reason why today i can survive through every situation. If i wake up in the morning healthy, and I all my family and friends are alive I'm always filled with gratitude. i try to keep it simple, maybe its easy for me based on how i was engineered or brought up! but i really dont want too many things. if I have good food, light in my house, decent clothes and my work..I'm satisfied, I don't want the best car, the best clothes, the best grateful for what i have presently. I'm so grateful for being alive to

How to make withdrawal as an agent on bet9ja

Today i'm going to show you how to withdraw from bet9ja especially as an agent  I realized a lot of agents do have a lot of problem with knowing how much or how  to withdraw to their bank account whenever they have winnings   so today i will be spilling the beans and by the end of this post  you should never and ever call customer care again on how to withdraw or how much to withdraw  ok lets go there... first, go to and log in to your bet9ja agent 'admin account'  before you start the withdrawal process the first thing to do is to know how much you can actually withdraw, most people forget that they need to remove the sales they made from the cash they will be asking for from the company  But how will you really know how much to withdraw ? first  from ''my account'' go to  ''report''  at  bottom left corner  Then from 'report' you click on  ''sportracingdeposit''
