For football-focused Nigeria, the confirmation that one of the leading sports betting brands 1xBet has been granted a full National Licence in the country until 2024 is a major coup for players, operators and Nigerian sports clubs alike.

1xBet’s expansion plans across Africa have reached a fever pitch as the company prepares to bolster its position in Nigeria with a new license, new partnerships and an aim to “set new standards of betting culture” on the continent, according to the 1xBet team.

“We are well aware of Nigeria’s position as a renowned football-focused market,” they said.   “In 2018 we signed a partnership agreement with the Nigeria Football Federation, the Nigeria national football team, as well as the Nigerian Premier League.   In addition, we are official partners of the African Confederation of Football and the largest club tournaments of the continent. We have accumulated considerable experience while working with top football clubs such as Barcelona. Therefore, we not only offer Nigerian fans a wide range of betting options, but also a sense of involvement in the victories of their favorite teams. Football fans can be sure of 1xBet, where they always have a winning chance alongside their favorite clubs.”

As one of the leading operators now licensed in the country, 1xBet is keen to showcase how it will offer the Nigerian sports fans one of the widest lines of sports betting as well as odds on the world of cinema, music, politics and other areas of life. Commenting on how this new license will allow the brand to work more with local partners, the 1xBet team explained: “1xBet has decided to establish ourselves in Africa as we feel we have something valuable to offer the African betting market including players and affiliates. With over 1000 events offered daily across more than 60 sports, the 1xBet experience is an exciting world of betting enjoyment. We also have a great selection of online games. All this means that everyone can find viable options to make money.   We want to give everyone who is legally able to place bets access to earning potential and look forward to finding interesting new partners in Nigeria with like-minded goals.”

The newly acquired National Licence by 1xBet has positioned the brand to legitimately operate in any part of the country, including in all the states and local government areas, broadening the company’s footprint across Africa. “In addition to Nigeria, on the African continent, we work in Ghana, Senegal, Uganda, DR Congo, Cameroon, Zambia, and Burundi. We have big plans for the region and consider Africa a very promising continent, where the number of fans of betting in general, and our company in particular, is constantly growing.”

Following headlines about betting on the continent in 2019, there is a renewed focus on responsible gaming across Africa, something which 1xBet is keen to drive forward with its unique position as one of the only full National Licence holders in Nigeria. “1xBet is a supporter of responsible betting,” the 1xBet team continued.   “We comply with the laws of each country in which we operate. Given that our license to work in Nigeria is valid until 2024, in the next five years we want to set new standards of betting culture. We will teach fans that with 1xBet they play according to simple and understandable rules that must be observed.

“In addition to the financial regulatory body’s transaction limit in Nigeria, and our concerted efforts to drastically reduce gaming addiction, we have also implemented a spending limit on our platform to further promote responsible gaming. Also, we ensure regular 1xBet attendance at various seminars of the regulatory authorities on responsible gaming.”

1xBet will be commencing its meetings with regulators and operators from Nigeria and other African countries at ICE London 2020, where the 1xBet team will be attending a dedicated ICE Africa networking breakfast as well as exhibiting on the show floor and delivering its expansion strategy in full.   “We have a strong presence in many countries spread over continents around the world, so there will be a lot to showcase at ICE London,” they said. In regards to Nigeria, we will be using our position as a National Licence holder to highlight the fact that we are a fully compliant brand in the sports betting industry.”

The 1xBet team concluded:  “Our intention at ICE London 2020 is to promote 1xBet as an operator who brings their same level of established excellence to Nigeria as well as other African countries. We will also promote 1xBet’s wide range of betting options to the African market and beyond whilst sharing our vision for 2020 and what exciting upcoming events and industry related news we have to offer. The thrust of our message will be that by joining 1xBet you will always be riding the crest of a wave.”

The e-sports are at a boom across the world. While people worldwide are getting to e-sports, many want to bet on these. E-sports betting is possible with cryptocurrencies as well! But how? Is it safe to use cryptocurrency for e-sports gambling? How can you avoid crypto wallet and transaction scams? Let’s explore the world of e-betting with cryptocurrency and help you with all your doubts.

Is cryptocurrency safe to use for e-betting?

You can refer to coingambling.info as a platform where you can find brands that use cryptocurrency for e-betting. Here are the reasons:

  • Security: Blockchain forms the foundation of cryptocurrency, providing top-notch transaction security. You can’t mess with crypto bets at all — blockchain’s see-through nature and spread-out structure ensure that! The transparent decentralized blockchain setup has a huge impact on keeping cryptocurrency wagers tamper-proof.
  • Privacy: Cryptocurrency gives users more privacy than regular money transfers and is quicker, too. When you bet online, crypto deposits and withdrawals beat old-school bank transfers hands down, they’re way faster. 
  • Faster transactions: Crypto transfers beat old-school bank methods hands down when it comes to speed. Players can deposit and cash out from betting sites much quicker using digital currencies. 

Cryptocurrency e-betting is a secure option due to its use of blockchain technology. You can place bets, move money in and out, and enjoy e-betting thrills without much worry. However, using crypto for e-betting does have some drawbacks too. Some of them are:

  • Volatility of the cryptocurrency: Crypto prices often fluctuate. Your bet’s value can shift fast, affecting how much you might win or lose. 
  • Security risks: While cryptocurrency itself is safe, if a secure wallet or exchange is not used, you might get scammed. 
  • Rules and regulations: Regions around the globe have different rules and regulations for cryptocurrencies. You have to ensure that you choose the legal cryptocurrency wallets and exchanges in your region.

While these cons can be daunting, there is a solution to everything. You can enjoy the excitement of online betting without stressing over crypto price swings and safety issues. Let’s explore how.

How Can You Safeguard Yourself Against Cryptocurrency Wallet And Exchange Scams?

Even though cryptocurrency is safe to use for e-betting, you still can land into a scam. Here’s how you can safeguard yourself from cryptocurrency wallet and exchange scams:

  • Stick to reliable crypto platforms for trading and storage. Avoid sketchy wallets that might turn out to be cons. Exodus, Coinbase, and CoPay rank among the top trusted options for buying, selling, and keeping your digital coins safe. These reputable services have a proven track record in handling cryptocurrency transactions. 
  • Use 2FA methods, such as a code sent to your phone or an authenticator app, to safeguard your wallet. This adds an extra layer of protection above the passwords. 
  • Keep your private keys private! Don’t share them with the wallet or exchange’s customer support. If someone asks you for the private key, it is potentially a scam.
  • Do not click on suspicious links or attachments sent via mail. They can be phishing attacks that the scammers use to scam you. 
  • Keep updating your software. Software updates also roll out security updates, which can provide extra protection for your account. 
  • There’s nothing like ‘Get Rick Quick’ in e-betting. If something is sounding too good, it’s too good to be true. Don’t fall for such traps. 

Cryptocurrency betting reshapes the betting world, and fraudsters push boundaries to break in. You must maximize your wagers and dodge the cons. The responsibility falls on you to make smart bets and protect yourself from tricksters. Scammers show they’ll do anything to cheat the system. It’s crucial to stay alert and get the most from your bets while avoiding scams. 

How To Protect Yourself From The Volatility Of Cryptocurrencies?

Cryptocurrencies are highly volatile! You can protect yourself from the volatility by diversifying your crypto portfolio. Also, every e-sports betting platform might not be accepting each cryptocurrency. Some might be accepting Bitcoin and Ether, while others might be expecting Litecoin and XRP. Having a diversified portfolio of cryptocurrency can help you have a chance to bet on multiple platforms. Additionally, you can choose the cryptocurrency which will return the best results for you. 

What are the types of e-sports available for betting?

People know Counter-Strike: Global Offensive as an e-sport game. However, many other e-sport games exist. Call of Duty, Apex Legends, and StarCraft are examples of popular e-sports. You can place bets on these games too. These games offer chances to gamble as traditional sports do. Fans of competitive gaming now bet on e-sports. Bettors can pick their favorite genre due to the wide range of games available. E-sports fans can bet on many game types, including first-person shooters and strategy games. Pro E-sports gambling resembles traditional gambling. Parents need to protect their children from potential risks. The growth of e-sports and e-betting will boost cryptocurrency usage for online betting transactions.
