VIP Program

At the time of writing, Betland is not offering a loyalty program or a VIP program per se. However, they are offering a birthday bonus: a 1,000 NGN – 5,000 NGN Free Bet (Active customers only).

A 10,000 NGN monthly birthday draw takes place as well, for all active customers. We hope that the betting site offers a dedicated VIP program in the near future to attract new players and retain loyal customers.

Pre-match offer


  • Presently, Betland is offering odds on a limited number of sports-based betting markets - 12
  • The betting site is offering a competitive nature of odds, backed by active markets
  • The minimum amount that you can stake on a sports-based betting market is 100 NGN, while the maximum amount that you can stake on a sports-based betting markets depends on the sports-based market that you have chosen, the number of selections that you have made, and the underlying odds for the same

screenshot of betland pre-match betting

At the time of writing, Betland is offering odds on a limited number of sports-based betting markets – 12.

The betting site is offering odds on popular sports-based betting markets like football, tennis, and basketball, as well as unique markets like darts, snooker, and cycling. This ensures that punters of all sporting tastes are satisfied, and have a betting market of their choice to punt on.

The minimum amount that you can stake on a sports-based betting market is 100 NGN, while the maximum amount that you can stake on a sports-based betting markets depends on the sports-based market that you have chosen, the number of selections that you have made, and the underlying odds for the same.

See the list of most popular betting terms and markets here.

On that note, when it comes to punting on a sports-based betting market, you should always do your research first. We recommend going through the odds on offer at several betting sites before punting on a betting site that is offering the best odds for a bet that you want to place.

Gauging the odds on offer at several betting sites will enable you to formulate a working idea of the teams/players that a betting site prefers. It will also help you determine the bookmaker’s margin that a betting site is charging you. That being said, what is bookmaker’s margin?

Bookmaker’s margin is the margin of profit which a betting site charges on a bet that you place. The higher this margin of profit is, the less likely your chances are of making a profit off a placed bet. You should place a bet on a betting variant with a margin nearer to the ideal mark of 100%, rather than those that exceed the 110% mark.

You can determine the bookmaker’s margin for a betting variant by calculating the Odds Overround for a betting variant. Here is how you can do this:

  1. Convert all the fractional outcomes of a betting variant into the decimal form.
  2. Divide all of these outcomes by 100.
  3. Add the resulting numbers together.
  4. From the resulting number, you can calculate the bookmaker’s margin for that particular betting variant.

To give you an example of the above, we calculated the Odds Overround for a match between Oleksandr Dukhovenko and Daniil Havrysh in the Setka Cup (Table Tennis).

We determined the Odds Overround to be 112.01, which indicates that Betland is offering a competitive nature of odds, backed by active markets (Table Tennis comes with a higher associated margin, given its lesser popularity).

 

Esports

Esports betting has taken off as of late, and is a prominent betting stop in a savvy punter’s betting list. There are several esports tournaments which take place on an annual basis.

It is therefore of little surprise that Betland has ventured into the avenues of esports betting, and is offering odds on Dota 2, League of Legends, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive betting markets.

If you want to do your research before placing a bet (which we thoroughly recommend) it’s a good idea to go through official rankings, past match results, past tournaments results, team gameplays, and team form guides, among other statistical insights.

Playing the actual game of the tournament in question can also boost your chances of placing a profitable bet.

The minimum amount that you can stake on an esports-based betting market is 100 NGN, while the maximum amount that you can stake on an esports-based betting market depends on the market that you have chosen, the number of selections that you have made and the underlying odds for the same.

Other Specials

At the time of writing, Betland is not offering odds on any Specials-based betting markets. Given the variety Special-based betting markets bring, it is rather unfortunate to see that Betland is not offering any odds on the same. We hope that the betting site will soon introduce Specials-based betting markets.

 

Cash Out and Bet Builder

At the time of writing, Betland is offering Cash Out as a promotional offer.

Cash Out, in essence, allows you to retrieve your initially placed stake and any winnings if you feel that you may lose a placed stake in due course of a match, or if you have already reaped a significant profit off a placed bet.

The amount of money that you retrieve via Cash Out depends on the exact instance of initiating a Cash Out, and the odds in favour of your placed selection/selections at the time of initiating the Cash Out request.

Check our extensive guide to Cash Out betting here.

While Betland is offering Cash Out, they are not currently offering Bet Builder, which is rather disappointing given the importance of this feature when it comes to creating a custom-made bet. Nevertheless, we hope that the betting site offers Bet Builder (also called Create-A-Bet) sooner rather than later.

At the time of writing, Betland does not offer  a Sportsbook app. That being said, you can access the mobile website via a tablet or smartphone.

As soon as you open the website on your mobile device, several options will appear along a gray layout: Mobile, Lite and Pc. The “Mobile” site is designed for tablet and smartphone users, and functions more smoothly than the “Lite” option. The advantage of using theLite” site is that is takes up less data than the former; however, the graphics and functionality are both lower in quality.

Summary


While Betland is among the most popular betting sites in Nigeria, the purpose of this review is to give you an honest account of whether the betting site is an ideal betting platform for our readers. Having gone through each of Betland’s features in detail, we have come to the conclusion that there are plenty more fish in the sea which have more to offer players.

While Betland comes with several advantages, its cons clearly outweigh its pros. Let’s start by listing the betting site’s disadvantages:

  4. Betland does not offer Bet Builder, nor any sections dedicated to statistics and results.

With that, let’s venture into the betting site’s advantages:

  1. Betland offers 4 deposit options and 2 withdrawal methods, with a gigantic maximum deposit amount of 10,000,000 NGN and a minimum withdrawal amount which is as low as 25 NGN.
