There is a new bookmaker in town -YangaSports, and we have gone ahead to get a first-hand experience of the bookmaker. All our findings are what we have put in this YangaSport review.
We start with a quick review of the significant features of the bookmaker and summarise them in the rating table below.
Read on to learn more about the login process, registration, live betting and more.

A welcome bonus can come in the form of free bets. A free bet is bonus money to bet on games, and you win when you meet the wagering requirements. It can also be a risk free bet, or a deposit match.
Now you know what kind of welcome bonuses to expect, we would go into the welcome bonus offered by Yangsport.
The welcome bonus at YangaSport is a 500% bonus up to N50,000. This money is credited to your bonus account as a free bet and can only be used to wager bets in the sports market.
This sports welcome bonus at YangaSport is the highest among bookmakers in Nigeria. This is because you can get a bigger bonus for a smaller amount deposited. For example, if you deposit N10,000, you will get a 500% increase, which is N50,000 at YangaSport. If you deposit the same amount at a bookmaker that offers a 100% increase, you will get an extra N10,000 in your bonus account.
Another good thing about the welcome bonus is the minimum deposit is N500 which is fair enough. However, it is the wagering requirements that are a bit tougher to meet.
This bonus is available for newcomers to the bookmaker’s site who go throught the registration process. The steps below describe how to unlock the bonus.

We also had to consider the betting markets available for each sport. And we found out that the bookmaker had it covered in that area.
An area that we would have wanted coverage on the YangaSport Nigeria betting site is that of eSports. It is a fast-growing sporting industry and offers very exciting betting opportunities.
Popular league competitions such as the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and leagues from several other countries. You also have a good opportunity to bet when competitions like AFCON, FIFA World Cup, UEFA Champions League and Europa League are on.
Here are some of the betting markets available on the bookmaker.
Tennis is one of the most popular individual sports (the other is golf). Tennis offers many betting opportunities as there are a lot of competitions organised throughout the year. The 4 grand slam competitions are the major competitions – the U.S Open, Roland Garros, Wimbledon and the Australian Open. Also, the ITF, WTA and ATP organise some other tours that are played throughout the year. Here are the tennis betting markets available at the bookmaker.
Tennis Betting Markets:
While cricket is the second most popular sport in the world, it is yet to find a strong footing in Nigeria. But the bookmaker has it for the few cricket fans who understand the game and the betting markets for it. The cricket competitions you can find on YangaSport are Test Series: The Ashes and the leagues from New Zealand and Australia.
Basketball is another sport with worldwide appeal with growing popularity in Nigeria. That is because of the national team’s performances in international competitions. Due to the sheer number of countries with basketball leagues, you won’t find it hard to find games to bet on. Leagues from Spain, Germany, China, Poland and the great NBA from the US are all featured on the bookmaker.
The next stop in our YangaSport review is the casino. Of course, every bookmaker worth their salt has a casino, so it was quite disappointing not to see a casino section on the YangaSport Nigeria site.
One benefit of the casino is that there are games available all the time, unlike the sports games that are played in seasons.
Also, casinos games are generally short term games, so you don’t have to wait for long to win your bet.
One last benefit of casinos is that they also offer several ways to play. There are the lucky pick games like slots, video poker and roulette and strategy games like baccarat, blackjack and poker. This variety adds to the fun a casino section offers.
However, the team at YangaSport doesn’t offer a casino yet. We hope they will start offering it soon. Even though, in its place, there are virtual games available.
The virtual section has football, tennis, and basketball games. This is the closest to casino games as the games go on continuously. Bettors can play virtual games or just watch the simulations on the YangaSports website.
As we mentioned earlier, there are no casino games at Yangaport, so there is no casino welcome bonus. But there is a sport welcome bonus, and there are terms and conditions attached to the bonus.
For starters, the bonus from the bookmaker is a free bet, so the bonus amount is just for betting in the sports section. Also, the free bet is given in a bonus account different from where your real money is, so you can’t withdraw the winnings from it unless you meet some wagering requirements. Here are some of the wagering requirements
The next aspect of this YangaSport review is the odds offered on the games.
When it comes to odds on games, YangaSport is competitive in calculating odds. The difference between the odds on the bookmakers and competitors can be 0.1 or 0.05 odds. So there is no significant advantage between YangaSport and other operators about odds.
Where there is a real advantage is in the other features that can increase the winning amount or reduce the betting risks. Features such as accumulator bonus and the cashout feature.
The accumulator bonus is a bonus you receive when you play multiple games in an accumulator bet slip. The bonus starts from 5% for 4 entries and stops at 210% at 45 games. The only criteria is that all the games must have odds of 1.21 and above. So even though multiple games increase the risk, the bonus makes the winning quite sizeable.
The cashout feature means that you can take the winnings from a bet slip even before all the games on the slip are completed.
These two features increase the winnings from betting and reduce the risk of losing out entirely.
The next aspect of this YangaSport review is the live streaming and live betting feature.
We were pleasantly surprised that the bookmaker offers a proper live streaming feature. While most bookmakers promise it, we have seen one that offers the real deal.
On the bookmaker’s website, you would see the YangaTV tab at the top of the page. This is where all the live matches and future live matches are shown. And we also found out that the games on YangaTV aren’t just niche sports like table tennis and cycling, but football games from leagues such as Greece Super League, basketball from one of the basketball leagues in China, and other popular sports.
Another great thing is that all you need to access this live stream is an account with the bookmaker. You don’t even need to have money in your YangaSport Nigeria account. You can literally stay in the comfort of your home and watch a match with a YangaSports Nigeria account without paying any extra money for cable TV.
You can also set notifications to get reminders of games when you want to watch live matches and even bet on them since the two are in the same section.
In addition to the live streaming feature, the live betting feature is another attractive feature of the bookmaker. Even though the live betting markets are smaller than the regular betting markets, there are more chances to win bets when you live bet. This is because the game’s progression will point to you the most likely outcome. You would have to be fast to place your bets as the odds change quickly.
There are also the statistics and records of the game that help place bets in case you want to place live bets.
There is no Yangasport mobile app at the moment. This can be because the bookmaker is still starting operations and setting up features.
A mobile app also has more security than a mobile site and reduces the opportunity for cyber-attacks. In addition, with the mobile app, you can set notifications on games so you can place your bets beforehand. We also believe that live betting and live streaming are more enjoyable on a mobile app since you can set notifications. But we believe that the bookmaker is developing mobile apps for both Android and iOS devices.
The bookmaker has quite a limited set of options when it comes to payment options. They just has just two – Monnify and Paystack. While these options look limited, we would reason that since the operator is in Nigeria, the Paystack option should cover for most bettors.
With the Paystack option, you have the option to deposit via Credit/Debit card, via bank transfer, USSD code and VISA QR. Also, the Monnify channel offers the same deposit options.
The minimum deposit for any deposit channel is N100. Once the money has left your bank account, it should reflect instantly in your betting account.
If you have won some money and want to withdraw it, you can do so. You will need to verify your account if that is your first withdrawal. After that, you can withdraw to bank accounts or credit/debit cards. The withdrawal time depends on the channel used. If the withdrawal is to bank accounts, you can expect it in 2-3 working days, while you can expect it to come instantly to credit cards.
If for any reason it doesn’t reflect within this period, it will be necessary to contact the YangaSport customer care team.
At the time of writing this YangaSport review, there were no fees for deposits and withdrawals.
The bookmaker has a customer care team that can help if you face any challenge while using their site. But before contacting the customer care team, there is a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page that you can visit to get answers to common issues. But if the problem you encounter is a deposit or withdrawal issue, then you will need to contact customer care on the following channels.
The bookmaker also has a physical office you can walk into on any working day to lay your complaint. This option is feasible if you live in Lagos. You can locate them at 3A Bola AdemuyiwaStreet, off Aswani Bustop, Osolo way, Isolo Lagos
We have come to the end of this YangaSport review, and we want to summarise all that we experienced at the bookmaker. As we have mentioned in this review, the bookmaker doesn’t have a casino section. However, there are virtual games in football, basketball and tennis. So bettors can keep themselves busy with those games.
Apart from the welcome bonus, there are other features of the bookmaker that we like, such as the live streaming and live betting quality.
The sportsbook section at YangaSport has several games, but some popular games like eSports are not available yet. The betting markets for sports too are up to par with other bookmakers.
But there are some areas we believe the bookmaker can improve. First, we hope they can develop a standalone mobile app. The casino option is non-existent, and there is no casino welcome bonus for casino lovers. Here is our final verdict in the table below

|The live streaming and live betting features are very well developed||There is no casino section yet|
|The welcome bonus is quite generous, with a fair minimum deposit
The bookmaker has several other bonuses
