Big Brother introduced a new currency this Season: Bet9ja Coins. Biggie also explained that the Bet9ja coins and the BB Naira currencies are different types of virtual currencies and cannot be used interchangeably.
The coins will be awarded during special challenges – which began on Day 2 – and as a reward for individual outstanding performance. There are five different types of Bet9ja Coins, each with a different value. The Coins will allow Housemates to buy any item of their choice throughout their stay in the House.
To keep the coins, Biggie provided safety deposit boxes for safekeeping of the coins earned by housemates.
What housemates can buy with their coins
Biggie has also introduced a special shopping cart where Bet9ja Coins may be traded for privileges.
Here are what the 21 housemates can do with their coins.
