Nigerian Casino Operator Tax Obstacles

There are a few obstacles in the gambling market in Nigeria. In order to make the business grow even further there are a few things that need improvements. For the casino industry to grow further faster internet connections, mobile penetrations and easy to use payment methods are all important factors. Another obstacle that not many people are talking about is the tax structure. In this article, we will talk about some of the considerations that we have in this regards.

Tax for Gambling in Nigeria

The tax rate in Nigeria depends on the state. Unfortunately, there are not all states that have a specialised team or board that manage these concerns. In Lagos, for example, the system works pretty well. Whereas, in other states, the tax system is part of the regular system. This makes it difficult for international operators to enter the market. When the tax and process differ between states it makes it difficult to operate on such a market. Also, the cooperation between the states is more or less non-existing. It will become increasingly important to figure this out to make it easier for the casino industry to continue growing. With the right law and tax in place, this could be very beneficial for the states. Read more about the tax on gambling in Nigeria at casino tax

Cooperation is important for responsible gambling

Another important factor is that with cooperation between different states it is easier to handle problem gamblers. To have responsible gambling is not that easy and Nigeria has a lot to learn from already regulated markets. For example, in the UK, Sweden and Denmark there are systems in place to ban yourself from all casino operators. They also have special tests, limits on how much you can gamble for each day, week and month. All of the mechanism is important and it better handled on nationwide level instead of by the state.

There are a lot to learn and a lot to take into consideration. For the best for Nigeria the Nigerian gambling industry we think the government should handle tax- and other gambling matters on a federal level.

Casino sponsors fourth season of Big Brother

Many online casinos in Nigeria are finding new ways to reach a potential customer base. One of the most innovative and largest gambling companies in Nigeria, Bet9ja recently announced that they will sponsor this year of Big Brother. After seeing the lines to the audition and the Bet9ja flags it is obvious that the sponsorship is a good idea. The auditions took place at 8 location Lagos, Port Harcourt, Calabar, Warri, Ibadan, Benin and Enugu. This very popular program will most likely attract a large number of new customers. In this article, we will try to dig a bit deeper into how this sponsorship looks like.

About Big Brother

Big Brother is a reality show first aired in the Netherlands and then spread across the world. Up until today’s date, there have been more than 400 seasons combined in more than 50 countries. The Big Brother season last year was named Double Wahala.

The concept is pretty simple. People live under the same roof in a specially constructed house or apartment that does not have any contact with the outside world. The people that live in the house should try to stay there as long as possible. The last person will be the winner. To stay you can win different competitions and challenges and avoid to be voted out from your housemates. Everything is closely monitored by cameras around the clock throughout the entire show.

Cost of Sponsorship

According to trustworthy resources, this sponsorship is worth as much as ₦1.08bn. This is much larger than the previous sponsorship from Bet9ja of the Nigerian National Team. The Nigerian National Team sponsor deal was “only” of ₦200 million. With this much budget Big Brother this year will be able to have better quality. The location will most likely be fancier than in previous years. Maybe they are even thinking about recording the show in South Africa. It will be very interesting to follow this development to see if more gambling operators are going to sponsor big events, teams and tv-shows like this to attract new customers.

New payment routines at NairaBET Shops

New from today is that even if you place your bet in on NariaBET shop you can withdrawal your money in any other NairaBET shop. Before it was only possible to make the withdrawal in the same shop as you made your bet. This is good news for players that often are on the move. For most players, this will not matter that much. The trend is clear, most new players are interested on playing online. If you want to play online check out our NairaBET review to get more information as well as a generous welcome bonus.

NairaBET Shops in Nigeria

There are 25 betting shops from NairaBET in Nigeria. These shops are spread out across the nation. In Anambra State, you can find one betting shop at 15, Onitsha Road Nnewi, Anambra. Lagos State has the most shops, with 11 shops. Most of them are in the city but you can also find shops at Somolu, Ebute-Metta, Yaba and Alapere. In Ogun State, there is one shop at Shop 132 Aroni Street, Sango-Otta Garage, Sango-Otta. Oyo State and Rivers State have 6 shops each. In Oyo State, all shops are in Ibadan and in Rivers State, all shops are in Port Harcourt.nairabet shops

Future of Betting Shops

There are different legislation that forces gambling operators to have physical betting shops in order to have online betting. These rules are different in different countries. In the countries where it is not required the shops are slowly getting fewer customers and more and more people are moving into the online world. We expect this to also happen in Nigeria. It can take some years but eventually online casino and sports betting online will be much more popular. What we hear that people do not trust the technology and feel more secure to have a physical paper where the teams, odds and payout structure is presented. This is understandable but till most likely chance over the next decade when the online gambling operators have gained more trust in the market.

Akwa United against Yobe Desert Stars – Attack by Fans

Akwa United won over Yobe Desert Stars on the 6th of February with 1-0. With the win, Akwa United advances from the last position to the 7th position in Group B. It was a very important game even if the season just started. Yobe Desert Stars is now second from the bottom and have only 6 points after 5 played games. The fans of Yobe Desert Stars became very angry with the final score and ashamed themselves by attacking players in Akwa United by throwing stones at them as well as vandalising their bus.

Yobe Deserts Stars fans attack Akwa United

From what we have heard the fans of Yobe Deserts Stars started to throw stones at the players at Akwa United after the game finished. If this is true it is terrible. No one should ever have to be afraid of playing the game that they love. It must have been especially difficult for the players in Akwa United since this was an away game. But it was not enough with attacking the players the fans also vandalised the bus of Akwa United.

Akwa United Vandalised Bus

Here are some images from the vandalisation. It must have been a very terrible experience for everyone in Akwa United.

How did it end?

The police had to use tear gas to push the angry fans back. It is still unclear what fine Yobe Desert Stars will get but it was not long ago since Plateau United and Niger Tornadoes got a fine of N1m each for troubling fans. This is definitely something to take very seriously. This is the players work and no one should have to feel insecure at a job. We hope and think that the organisations responsible for this will take actions.

Next Games

Let’s just hope the upcoming games for Akwa United vs Kada City and Yobe Stars vs Kano Pillars on Sunday the 10th of February will be a much more friendly event. It should be safe for both players, family, kids and women to watch football. If you want to play a bet on one of these games check out this top list of betting sites.

AFCON 2019

CAIRO – January 8, 2019. The Confederation of African Football (CAF) announced today, Tuesday January 8 2019, that Egypt will host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON 2019.

In the evening before the day of the announcement, the Egyptian delegation, led by Hani Abo Rida, president of the Football Association, arrived in Dakar, the capital of Senegal, to attend a meeting of the CAF Executive Committee.

The Egyptian presentation team consists of Mohamed Kamel, Presentation CEO, Ahmed Megahed, Karam Kordi and Magdi Abel Gani.

As soon as the delegation arrived, its members met members of the Executive Committee to convince them to vote for Egypt for the AFCON 2019. The Presentation team showed an advertising video in support of Egypt’s application for the right to host the tournament, and it was launched in three different languages ​​except Arabic.

Will Mohamed Salah continue his dominance from the Premier League also into the AFCON 2019?

Cameroon stripped of AFCON 2019 hosting

The African Championships are settled between June 15 and July 13. And with just over half a year before the tournament, (CAF) decided to make a change in hosting.

Originally, the AFCON 2019 was planned to be held in Cameroon. But after a meeting that supposedly lasted over ten hours in Ghana in November 2018, it was established that Cameroon can no longer arrange the AFCON 2019. Reasons being serious delays in the preparations and that security in the country cannot be guaranteed.

Close competition with South Africa

When it was decided that Cameroon was stripped as host, both Egypt and South Africa showed interest in hosting AFCON 2019. They are clearly good candidates both of them with infrastructure already in place when it was decided there are plenty of opportunities for a football tournament, but reports say doubts were expressed about the low participation in South Africa.

In recent years, participation in football matches in South African arenas has decreased, including Bafan Bafan matches, which could affect the country hosting a successful tournament.

Although South African football fans were divided on whether the country would qualify for the tournament, the South African Football Association (SAFA) did not receive government support, which CAF reportedly made it difficult for them to accept the SA application.

Nigeria AFCON 2019

Egypt, which won the Africa Cup of Nations Trophy seven times, will host the tournament for the fifth time in its history. In 1957, 1974, 1986 and 2006, the tournament was held in Egypt, but they could not win the title until 1974. The last time they hosted the tournament was in 2006, when they also made it to the finals. The tournament has been expanded from 16 to 24 teams. It is the first time it is decided for summer.

AFCON 2019For Nigeria and the Super Eagles, who lifted the Cup in 2013, the AFCON 2019 will be their first showing on the big stage since they won the Cup. Nigeria has not qualified for the tournament since they won in 2013 and crashed out in both 2015 and 2017 qualifiers. But this time the team feels really strong and they finished first in their group in front of strong contenders in South Africa (Q) and Libya.

With John Mikel Obi as captain of the team chances are looking better for the Super Eagles in many years. In 2018 the team participated in the World Cup and came really close of making it to the playoffs, but unfortunately lost the decider game against Argentina. However, team looked really strong and we hope for the best of the Super Eagles in AFCON 2019.

AWCON is decided – Super Falcons of Nigeria won!

On the first of December, the big final of the African Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) was decided. Competing teams were Nigeria and South Africa – and to our delight, the Nigerian team took home the victory. The Super Falcons of Nigeria beat Bayana Bayana from South Africa with 1 to 0. The final took place in Accra, the capital of Ghana. The game was a real crowd favourite and there has been a lot of Nigerian betting on this match. But it wasn’t an easy game for the Nigerians to win. They had to struggle through overtime and penalties to be able to win the cup.

Nigeria vs. South Africa – The AWCON Final

After a tough, long 90 minutes without a lot of chances for both teams, they both needed to regroup for the overtime. However, during the first 90 minutes, we got to see the Nigerian goalkeeper, Oluehi Tochukwu, make a couple of nice saves as well as Asisat Oshoala having two really nice chances of putting the ball in the goal for the Nigerians.

awcon nigeria super falcons

The overtime went by without any real big scoring opportunities and in a dark and warm Accra night, it was about to be decided in the shootouts. After two missed penalties from the South African team, finally, Nigeria Super Falcons was able to raise the trophy. The forward in Nigeria, Francisca Ordega, became the woman of the match by leading her team to the final victory.

This team is starting to get used to winning the AWCON. For their third consecutive time, they finished at the number one spot and they have won as many as nine tournaments in total.

This tournament in Ghana has been a very popular one, with a lot of audiences watching it. Female football is constantly growing in Africa, something that betting companies have snapped up. Lionsbet in Nigeria offered a lot of ways to bet on the AWCON games for example.
