Bonuses & Promotions

6 / 10

There is no welcome bonus, regardless of whether you’re playing at the PremierBet mobile or desktop website. So, this means that you won’t get any no deposit bonus after your Premier Bet registration, and you also won’t get to scoop a nice first deposit bonus. This lack of a Premier Bet welcome bonus is going to be something that affects the number of players signing up with the site, so we don’t understand why a bonus of some sort isn’t offered.

There are, however, other Premier Bet promotions to take advantage of. Besides the odds boost and the accumulator percentage increase, regular players can benefit from the loyalty club that on a weekly basis gives out free bets. You need to opt-in rather than use a promo code. Depending on the amount that you bet each week, you’ll receive a cashback reward in the form of a free bet on the following Monday. It also offers a football jackpot during the season, which requires you to guess final scores of 6 matches.

The Premier Bet odds are displayed in a decimal format that is easy for most bettors to understand. Odds affect a bettor’s payout, so it’s essential to go through our list of betting sites in Nigeria and find a bookie that offers good value.

Premier bet fixtures for football are around the market average when compared to other big African sportsbooks, but way more below than industries biggest names offer. In tennis, you’re likely to find competitive odds, which are as good as most other bookmakers out there. Other sports, such as golf and darts, will often beat other African betting sites, so there is value to be found.

Mobile access is vital for those who want to bet on the go, and they can use the dedicated Premier Bet app for this. This is available to Android users, who can download it in apk format from the website.

The Premier Bet mobile experience is as smooth as the desktop site. Customers can access all of the betting markets, take advantage of sign up offers, and use the functions like cash-out and build accumulator bets.

Premier Bet meets its customers’ needs, that’s why the website is fully adapted to Opera mini. Mobile internet prices in Africa keep dropping during the years but still are way too expensive. Hence, a well-optimized Opera mini website is more valuable to customers as it consumes way less mobile internet data compared to a traditional mobile site.

Overall, the Premier Bet site looks excellent. The green colour scheme is attractive, and the menus are easy to find and navigate. The Premier Bet sports betting sections are split into categories to help you narrow down the selection. You need to tick a league or tournament to see the odds, which are in a small font.

Registration is through your email and phone number, and it’s pretty easy. Once you have your login details, you can access your bet slip, as well as the virtual games that make up the Premier Bet casino.

The site appears in English and several other languages such as Swahili and French, depending on your country.

Gambling comes in many forms, and it’s a variety that many bettors look for when choosing a sportsbook. Premier Bet online betting covers virtual games and a wide choice of sports markets.

As well as traditional sports, bettors will find several esports markets, such as League of Legends and Counter-Strike. There are also special bets on international politics. The Premier Bet live betting center provides lots of information for bettors to follow the action but does not have live streaming.

The types of live bets are wide-ranging from the next goal, score at the end of the first half, and many more. There weren’t any fast markets to be seen, such as the next throw in for football. The only thing missing from the line-up of sports is horse racing. However, it’s common nowadays to find sports betting sites not offering this. However, the range is enough to keep most bettors satisfied.

Premierbet was founded in 2013. It focuses its attention on African betting markets, being prominent in many countries that seem to be open to the idea of online betting, like Nigeria, Uganda, Ghana, Rwanda and others.

There is a Premier Bet license for each country that the company operates in. For example, in Tanzania, the site and its activities are authorized by the Gaming Board of Tanzania. This is a reassuring sign of the site’s credibility.

Other ways to see that this sportsbook is trustworthy are the site’s information section and general reputation online. There is a privacy policy to show how the company handles customer data, as well as a responsible gaming section to help bettors keep the activities fun and to get help when they need it. Customer reviews of the site have mentioned issues with verification before withdrawing, but are otherwise positive.

Payment Methods

As the operator makes its services available in several different countries, there are a number of Premier Bet deposit methods tailored to the locations. Minimum deposits change based on the country’s currency. In Tanzania, the minimum amount is 500 TZS.

That being said, the bookmaker has a distinct downside in deposit methods, since it doesn’t really seem to accept many conventional online payment options. For example, for Ghana, it limits itself to either phone payments via Airtel, MTN and Vodafone, or to offline voucher payments.


Most Premier Bet withdrawal options match the deposit methods, which means there are usually three or four to choose. The minimum amount to withdraw is typically much higher than the deposit minimum; for example, in Tanzania, the lowest is 2,000 TZS.

Premierbet withdrawals suffer from the same fault as its deposits – the limit of payment methods. You can either use your phone or get a code to realise in a kiosk, and that’s about it.

Deposit funds & Withdraw funds

15,000–15,000,000 TZS Instant 0%

Anyone in need of some help can turn to several customer service options for support. There is a contact form that sends an email to the support team. Still, don’t expect a reply to your email too quickly, as it can take up to 24 hours (or sometimes longer) to get a reply. Alternatively, you can get in touch using the toll-free Premier Bet contact number. The live chat was offline for several hours, which meant it could not be tested.

Each version of Premier Bet Africa has a help center (FAQ), where customers can find out more information about several processes, including registration, deposits and withdrawals, and bonuses.

Claiming to be Africa’s largest online betting platform, Premier Bet launched in 2015 and has been growing ever since then. The operator runs sportsbooks in more than 15 African countries and assumes to be the most prominent gambling operator in Africa.

  • Limitations
  • Live chat mostly unavailable
  • 20% withholding tax on winnings (in particular countries)
  • Live streaming is not available

For their dreams to come true, they have to improve many things. The notable weak points are; lack of the first deposit bonus, live streaming and a live chat issue – isn’t available during the day most of the times. Another point is the lack of usual online payment methods, as having access solely to mobile or kiosk options might seem limiting in our age of bank transfers, cryptocurrencies and e-wallers.

MightyTips football experts had already reviewed Premier Bet in 2019, and we have to admit, they are making progress. If they focused on their weak spots such as making an effort to spread across Africa, that would present them as a favourite place for African bettors.
