- As the football fans celebrate the return of sports activities, Nicholas Kirui, a 43-year-old tea farmer from Nakuru County celebrates with Betika as he becomes the first punter to bag the Sh15m Betika midweek jackpot.
The National Super League sponsors, Betika, announced Kirui as the winner after predicting all 15 games correct at a stake of Sh15.
Kirui, the latest millionaire said the windfall quenched his thirst to make a living from betting as he realized his fortune after a long and tireless peruse of the Betika Jackpot.
“When there were no games, once a week I’d entertain myself with virtual and casino games on the Betika platform. However, there is nothing like live games, the adrenaline is different. So on May 16, when Bundesliga returned and Betika announced they will be airing all the games on the live section of their website, I was happy that there was a glimmer of hope in these tough times,” Kirui said.
“But the English Premier League is where I knew my luck was. I love the EPL. To be honest, I spent many hours a day just analyzing the weekend games. I took a chance on some teams,” he added.
“I am a Manchester United fan but I’d sell them out if it means earning myself the Sh15 Million. I stayed up all night watching the games at home with my kids until they went to sleep and I was left dozing off ticking my wins. On the 95th Minute, with that last goal by Brighton, I was a second away from being Sh15m-richer,” Kirui explained.
Fortunate Kirui plans to use part of the money to secure his family’s future by investing in farming and building some rental houses as his retirement plan.
With the English Premier League (EPL) in action today most of the fans and gamblers will look forward to backing their teams and make fortune from gambling should they predict correctly.
