BetKing is a new sports betting site that first launched in early 2018 and operates from Lagos, Nigeria. SV Gaming Limited is the parent company, and the current CEO is Byron Petzer.
BetKing only offers sports betting, but there is a comprehensive sportsbook with 20+ sports, a wide range of betting markets, high odds and several sports promotions to get great value for your money.
BetKing Sign Up Bonus
We do not currently have a signup bonus for new BetKing customers. But, we do have several exclusive Nigerian Naira bonuses on the best betting sites, including offers from Bet9ja, Betway Nigeria, 22Bet Nigeria, and more.
Sports, Betting Markets & Betting Odds
BetKing offers a wide number of sports and events from all around the world, but there are not as many sports as most UK betting sites. Still, you can find around 20 different sports to bet on which is far more than most Nigerian sports betting sites.
- Ice Hockey
- Table Tennis
- Field Hockey
- Alpine Skiing
As for the betting markets, BetKing offers all of the popular markets including WinDrawWin, both teams to score, over/under, etc. But, also offers smaller markets such as Asian Handicaps, European handicaps, and combo bets. Overall, the betting markets are pretty decent compared to most, especially the inclusion of Asian handicap markets, but, we would like to see some bet builder type feature, and some other markets such as corners, cards, and goalscorer bets.
In terms of the betting margins, BetKing has come out on top in our tests of Nigerian betting sites with an average of 6.76%. Still, it is higher than the best betting margins in the UK, but it seems Nigerian bookies have higher betting margins in general. For example, Betway Nigeria had margins of 7.66% and Bet9ja had margins of 9.36%.
BetKing does not have any mobile betting apps available for players, but you can get use either BetKing lite (old mobile site) or the new BetKing mobile site. You get to choose which site to use depending on your device, and you can easily switch between the two.
The BetKing Mobile+ site has been built and optimised for smartphones, and it is fast, user-friendly and reliable. You can bet on all the sports that you usually would on desktop, virtual leagues, and live betting. Players can also access other features such as Super 6, customer support and live chat, coupon check, live scores, results, statistics and more.
BetKing Lite (old mobile site)
The BetKing lite or old mobile site is optimised for older devices, and players that want to use less data, or simply prefer the old design of the bookie. Players will not be able to access as many features, and the design is older and outdated. But, you can still place bets both pre-match and live, check your coupons, book a bet, look at today’s games and talk to customer service on live chat.
BetKing Customer Support
BetKing has a top of the line 24/7 customer service with several methods of contact. We found the live chat to be the fastest and most helpful method of contact.

Overall, BetKing is a good option for sports betting enthusiasts from Nigeria. You will find some of the highest odds across their sportsbook on over 20 sports, a wide range of betting markets, 24/7 customer support, and fast withdrawals.
But, we would like to see BetKing release a mobile betting app instead of relying on old and new mobile sites. And, it would be great to see some events offer live streaming. Still, we happily recommend BetKing as a great option for Nigerian sports bettors.
