License Extension for Betway Nigeria

Betway, a leading online sportsbook and mobile betting company, has announced that it has secured an extension on its national gaming licence in Nigeria. The Abuja National Lottery Regulatory Commission has granted the operator another five years of operation across over 700 local government areas and 30+ states.

Exemplary Compliance Record

The Director-General of the Commission, Lanre Gbajabiamila, commended Betway for its exemplary compliance with Nigerian gambling and betting regulations over the past five years, citing the company as one of the most cooperative in the country. He praised the board and management and encouraged them to maintain their excellent record, assuring them of the continuing relationship between the company and Nigerian regulators.

Betway’s Ongoing Commitment

Anthony Werkman, the CEO of Betway, expressed his gratitude for the extension of the Nigerian license and declared his company’s commitment to maintaining high standards of ethical and responsible gaming practices and customer service. Werkman thanked the National Lottery Regulatory Commission for the opportunity to continue providing a safe, secure, and fair environment for Nigerian bettors to enjoy online.

Generous Community Service Initiatives

Chris Ubosi, Betway Nigeria’s Director, attributed the company’s popularity to its excellent services and charitable community initiatives, including donations of sports equipment worth millions to gyms across Nigeria and flood relief donations to victims of the Bayelsa Flood.

The Betway brand is no stranger to giving back to the community. They’ve previously offered bursaries and mentorship opportunities to young Nigerians. Betway Nigeria has also sponsored various local tournaments and sporting events.

It’s clear that Betway is committed to its Nigerian audience. They’ve shown this with their track record of compliance, community initiatives, and continued commitment to excellence. With their extended licence, Betway will continue to operate and serve the Nigerian market for years to come.
