How many minutes do I get with N100 on MTN BetaTalk?
Let’s do the calculations:
- If you recharge with N100, you will get N350 (N100 for main + N250 for bonus) in your Beta talk account i.e. N100 (recharge value) + N250 (bonus)
- First 1-minute call of the day: N42.38/min (from your main account)
- For bonus account: N0.64kobo X 60 seconds = N38.4k
- For main account: N0.315kobo X 60 seconds = N18.9k
- So, with N100 airtime, you will get >> N100 – N42.38 = N57.62 + N250/N38.4 (6 minutes 30 seconds from bonus account) + N57.62/N18.9 (3 minutes 3 seconds from the main account) ≅ 9 minutes 33 seconds.

I actually migrated to beta talk a few months ago and for a while it was great I won’t lie. The bonuses were just terrific but after like a week or 2 I stopped receiving bonuses like I used to. It’s just so frustrating.
