SportyBet App Review – Soccernet NG

SportyBet is known for its excellent services and advanced, yet simple, interface and functionality. The company was founded back in the day by Sudeep Dalamal Ramnani, a researcher and investor in the field of African information technology. He’s still striving to create a global-level environment that will be equally accessible to every Nigerian. No wonder the platform has found its success in the eyes of locals and has a large and loyal player base of more than 400,000 punters. In this article, we’re going to provide you with comprehensive details on how to download the SportyBet App and get started without any issues.

Downloading The App

One of the key factors for the success of any bookmaker in the 21st century is the availability of a high-quality and fast mobile application. This ensures that every bettor will have access to the platform and wagers without being stuck at a PC for all day. Having a mobile app also makes life easier in the form of being able to make payments, both in and out, place bets, and track your activity history right on your gadget. The statistics of recent years show that the number of punters making bets from their phones is growing significantly from year to year, and this also confirms the fact that each company must make sure that their application is as efficient and advanced as possible.

Downloading the app won’t be much of an issue with a decent online connection and a small amount of free storage space. Here’s how the process goes:

  1. Navigate to the SportyBet website.
  2. Tap on the “App” tab under the “Login” button.
  3. Tap on “Download for Free”. 
  4. If your gadget operates on an Android version older than 5.0, use the additional link under the button.
  5. Double-check that the phone permits the installation of software from unknown sources.
  6. Activate the APK and finish the process.
  7. Done!

Keep in mind that we specified the most commonly used way for downloading the app. Alternatively, you can scan a QR code for a direct link to the app. If the previous two ways are not suitable, you are also able to type the short link in the phone browser and obtain an app. The link goes “”.

As of the end of 2022, a mobile app operates on Android-based gadgets only. But there’s no reason to go blue if you have an Apple device, as you’re still able to place wagers by utilizing the lite version of the website in browsers like Safari. Undoubtedly, it won’t make up for the lack of the app, but it’s still better than nothing. Hopefully, the iOS version will see the light of day in the upcoming years.

Signing Up & Payments

Once you have an application, it’s just the right time to get started. But you can’t do that without a personal account. No worries, we are about to tell you how to register one:

  1. Run the application or navigate to the SportyBet website.
  2. Click on the “Register.”
  3. Enter the mobile number and set a password.
  4. Hit the “Create Account.”
  5. Confirm your account by submitting the digital code that was delivered via SMS.
  6. Account has been successfully created.
  7. Proceed to the account settings and fill out the required information.
  8. Done!

It’s worth noting that you can skip step #7, but in this scenario you won’t be able to take money out. The “Know Your Customer” set of rules points out that an unverified account cannot pretend to initiate any withdrawals, even the tiniest ones. So our best advice here would be to cover all the details before directly starting out with betting.

When your account is ready to go, your next step before placing the first bet is making an initial payment, which can be increased up to 100% thanks to SportyBet’s welcome bonus. Here’s how to top up an account:

  1. Run the application or navigate to the SportyBet website.
  2. Ensure you’re logged into the account.
  3. Select the “Deposit” button in the account tab.
  4. Pick the most suitable top up option among the suggested ones.
  5. Enter the sum you’d like to take in.
  6. Confirm the transaction.
  7. Done!

If the transaction went smoothly, the money will appear on your balance within the blink of an eye. Intending to simplify operations with funds, customer service staff are on duty day and night without days off, and are ready to address any possible issue you may face. So, if the balance is not correctly updated, or not updated at all, and the transaction from the banking side has been successfully completed, don’t lose your time and contact the staff for detailed information.

The withdrawal process goes exactly the same way as making a deposit. The only difference is in step #3, where you’re selecting a different service in the account menu:

  1. Run the application or navigate to the SportyBet website.
  2. Ensure you’re logged into the account.
  3. Select the “Withdraw” button in the account tab.
  4. Pick the most suitable payout option among the suggested ones.
  5. Enter the sum you’d like to take out.
  6. Confirm the transaction.
  7. Done!
