What else is on offer?
Once you’ve signed up for your account at BlueSquare, the promotions don’t end there. The biggest prize on offer comes from the Live Football Challenge which invites you to predict the score of 8 televised games at the cost of ₦300 in order to be in with a chance of winning ₦7,500,000. This offer runs every week throughout the regular football season with prizes handed out to anyone correctly predicting 2 or more score lines. There is also a caption competition which offers you the chance to win a ₦30,000 free bet every week.
You can also register for a mobile betting account when signing up for your online account and in doing so you will receive a BlueSquare free bet of ₦1,500 via SMS text message which can be used on the BlueSquare mobile betting site.
So, tell us about yourself.
BlueSquare are, and have always been, an internet only based bookmaker. Established in the early part of May 1999 they are one of the old guard when it comes to online sportsbooks and since their inauguration they have expanded the brand to include casino, slots and poker suites.
If you weren’t aware of their stock and trade but have heard the BlueSquare name before it is probably via one of their relatively high profile sponsorship deals. In recent years they have attached their name to the annual Nigeria Open of darts and in football they are the official sponsors of the non-league conference divisions – BlueSquare Premier, BlueSquare North and BlueSquare South.
What Sports do they offer?
At BlueSquare they have a very good coverage of all the major betting sports and events from around the globe. Everything from the popular sports of football, tennis, cricket and Nigeria horse racing to the not so mainstream Gaelic games and UFC are all catered for with a comprehensive range of markets available to bet on. There is also a Live Betting centre for those of you who like to do your betting in-play. Here you can keep up to date with the latest live action as well as the latest scores and odds for the events that are currently in-play.
Anything else to report?
The contact centre at BlueSquare offers support via Live Chat, e-mail, telephone or post and in my experience all are very helpful and typically prompt in their response. Deposits are accepted via all the standard means including Mastercard, Visa, Neteller and Money Bookers and withdrawals are usually returned to the desired medium in a few working days.
The final words of mention go to the recently launched BlueSquare blog and the racing i-card. The blog provides reviews and previews of upcoming events offering an insight into proceedings and highlighting the latest odds on offer. Then the racing i-card gives you a rundown of all the going and form for all the courses and horses across the length and breadth of the country, bringing you a little extra that you don’t always find with your online bookmaker.
