Stephen Ojwang’ is a 50-year-old businessman from Siaya who has been playing with SportPesa for the last four years. He recently won an astounding KSHs 23,027,939 by correctly predicting all 13 games in the Midweek Jackpot. Ojwang’ expressed his happiness and gratitude to SportPesa and stated that he is not done yet. He plans to play for the SportPesa Mega Jackpot that currently stands at KSHs 293,519,018.
Ojwang’ was surprised to learn of his victory. He usually places 6 or 7 bet slips and then forgets about them until the final results are announced. Biggie from SportPesa called him to alert him of his win, and shortly after, his wife called him to shout that they had won. Ojwang’ has been mocked by friends in the past after winning only KSHs 1,000 from placing a bet on his favorite team, Gor Mahia FC, as they beat Nairobi City Stars in a Kenya Premier League encounter.
Ojwang’ attributes his win to his improved football analysis skills, which have been honed with time. He believes that the resumption of top leagues this weekend will make predictions easier due to familiar teams in various fixtures. He advises others to place between 5 and 10 slips for the jackpot, stating that it may take time, but in the end, it can pay off.
Ojwang’ plans to contribute some of his winnings to his church, stating that he cannot win the jackpot without the hand of God. He is also discussing with his wife and kids what they can do to better their lives. Ojwang’ only plays with SportPesa because the pay is instant, and he is now a millionaire because of them. The SportPesa Mega Jackpot kicks off on Saturday, April 1, and for only KSHs 99, you could be the biggest football jackpot winner in the land.
