Merrybet is considered by many to be the number online sports betting sites in Nigeria, with football betting being the most popular means to wager.
According to the site there is a Merrybet booking code for each day and this is also advertised on their social media pages. For example a bet code will look like this – 6551131.By using the unique merrybet code a subscriber will get the matches, bet-markets and odds for all the scheduled games. There are two options to use this code – one by going into one of their many bet shops, or two – by logging onto the web or mobi site, typing in the code and scanning the latest fixtures on offer. Every fixture also has a match code, which is used to identify the fixture. Then click on the desired result (with odds shown clearly). Multi bets are available so click on any game on the list and then go to the bet slip (right side of page) and follow the prompts – remember to include the stake amount, and to confirm bet.
To access your booking code a punter must first log on and make predictions by clicking on the results of a single or multi fixtures. The site offers a weekly jackpot multi-bet (Thursday) by using this information with various winning tiers. The site employs a points system with these earned by correctly predicting straight results – and if a punter chooses an enhanced merrybet level then factors such as goals scored etcetera will add more points to the total and increase earnings.
There are Also event codes for example the EPL season (event code 141). By going onto their site and finding today’s matches will present match codes for each specific game (e.g. 45822). Then each bet market for that game also carries a unique code. Once a punter has clicked on the market for the particular game or multi-bets a screen will pop up in left hand corner asking for a single or multi and then the stake.
Once you have put in stake, click on proceed and then the potential winnings will be highlighted, before a punter must press place a bet or book-a-bet.
If you put book-a-bet a unique code will be shown (9798255) and to place a bet a punter must log-in.
The system is a little different and slightly more complicated than the likes of nairabet and 1960bet, but the essence of playing is still the same.
To place a single bet a punter must just click on the one fixture, to place an accumulator a user must click on the games they want to come in.
The games will not be highlighted so a player must look at their bet slip very carefully (top right of screen) before progressing to the actual placing of the stake.
A player can place a bet on many markets such as over/under, no goals, both teams to score and many more, with odds shown.
The look and feel is not as good as some competitors but the bet markets is broader than most.
