Sports betting technology provider Betgenuis has been named the primary in-play trading partner for Nigerian sportsbook operator NairaBet.

The agreement will see NairaBet offer its customer live odds on major sports such as football and basketball, compiled by Betgenius' in-play trading team.

"As competition grows in the Nigerian sports betting space, we at NairaBet made a decision to stand out from the crowd," NairaBet chief executive Akin Alabi explained.

"One of the decisions we made was to partner with Betgenius to power our in-play markets. I am confident it will be a rewarding experience for both parties."

Betgenius managing director Matt Stephenson added: "As one of Nigeria's premier sportsbook operators NairaBet is leading the way in the growth of its in-play offering, building upon its own high quality in-house risk management team.

"The live betting trend is spreading across the African market and Betgenius is excited to bring our trusted product to many more partners in the region in the future."
