A 22-year-old university student Eli Kipruto Rotich of the Jomo Kenyatta University of Science and Technology has become the latest multi-millionaire after he was awarded Sh200,000,000 for winning the Betika Mega Jackpot. Rotich won the jackpot after placing Sh49 bet and predicting 17 matches correctly.
Rotich became the first person to win the Sh200 million Betika Mega Jackpot which is the outcome of the revamped Sh100 million done when the 2022/23 season had just kicked off.
“I usually spend less than Sh100 every weekend and I didn’t think much about this Mega Jackpot combination because I have registered just one bonus win over the years,” said Rotich, who is a Manchester City fan.
“I’m very grateful to Betika for this jackpot and for offering me a financial advisor because to be honest, I haven’t figured out what to do with the money yet. It hasn’t sunk in yet that I no longer have money problems, just how to spend it,” he added.
Speaking during the handover of the cheque, Betika’s Senior Product Manager Kent Kagicha said: ‘’The odds were in your favour, and even when one game was postponed and the outcome had to be decided through a public draw, the outcome was still in your favour. We are so happy for you.”
“At Betika, we will always ensure that we offer our customers a credible platform where they can enjoy their favourite sport as they place their bets on a platform that offers them the best experience with great rewards. Our initial Grand Jackpot was worth Sh100 million and one needed Sh99 to play. We however saw the need to revamp and give our customers more value for less,” added Kangicha.
