A 34-year old Boda Boda rider is the latest SportPesa jackpot winner after correctly predicting the outcomes of 13 football matches in this week’s jackpot games. Geoffrey Kipng’etich, who started betting two years ago, said it was a dream come true.
Kipng’etich, a resident of Keringet District in Nakuru County, has two wives and three kids. He placed a bet with Ksh300 to win the Ksh12,646,353. His win comes two weeks after Lessos resident Shadrack Kitur bagged Ksh22.8 million jackpot.
SportPesa’s Assistant Marketing Manager Esther Kang’ethe asked him to use the funds responsibly to better his future. “We are always delighted when we put smiles on our clients’ faces. SportPesa gaming is real and payments are prompt as our winner can attest,” he said.
“To ensure that the money truly is a blessing to the customer, we are committed to offering financial and legal advisory to clients just to guide them on prudent use and to ensure that they are not duped into signing faulty contracts when doing any deals.”
Kipng’etich said he will use the money to pay fees for his children, buy a plot and build a house. To make it easier and cheaper to play on SportPesa, the company recently launched a USSD service which allows clients who have no smartphones or personal computers to place bets by simply dialing *790#.
Following his good fortune, Kipng’etich who has never had a bank account opened his first one at Co-operative Bank, Molo. The new mid-week jackpot for correct prediction of 13 matches has opened at Ksh10 million and will keep progressing every week until it’s won again while the correct prediction of 17 matches will see the participant win a Mega Jackpot amount that stands at a whooping Ksh137,386,214 and will keep progressing as well until it is won.
