Football fan Titus Koech is the latest winner of the BetYetu jackpot. He is the third jackpot winner in six months after James Muriithi bagged Sh7 million in October and Edwin Muniu took home Sh2 million in June.
The former Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) Officer who lives in Kisumu, won Sh5,444,105 after making 13 correct match predictions. He had for a long time tried but failed. However his luck struck when he got contact from Betyetu about his winnings.
“I will use the money to purchase a trailer so I can finally realise my dream of venturing into the long distance transport business,” said the 32-year-old father of four. “I also plan to build a home for my family and open a small business for my wife.”
Betyetu has awarded over Sh40 million in jackpot winnings since the platform launched in Kenya in June 2015. It is part of the Oxygen8 Group, which provides mobile solutions to various sectors.
Koech who attests to having tried his hand before in other raffles was elated and suggested he would continue betting after seeing the benefits. “Anybody can try and win so it is not for a select few.
Sometimes all it requires is persistence and patience and of course knowledge of your sport,” he said. It is rated among Kenya’s most accessible betting companies with multiple betting options including Jackpot; Jackpot bonuses for up to 9/13 correct predictions, Best odds on live betting; multi-live betting, odds boosts and over 30 betting markets.
The platform offers two jackpots weekly; mid week jackpot & weekend jackpot each at Sh 50 only. The firm’s marketing manager Gabriel Musyoka told the press that Betyetu will continue to enrich sports’ punters lives with great odds. “It is a growing fad and we undertake to continue keeping the betting fraternity a happy lot with more exciting packages.”
