Valentines came early for Charles Omondi after he became the first winner of the weekly Betway Jackpot this year, winning Sh1.7m on Monday.

The resident of Mtwapa placed a bet of Sh760 which resulted in him winning windfall, thanks to a Betway early settlement cash offer.

This offer allowed him to cash out on the 11th game of the Pick 15 Jackpot. Betway only gives early settlement cash offers to customers who, at the point of offer, have every selection correct in their Jackpot picks.

If Omondi had allowed his Jackpot to continue into the 12th game, he would have lost out and only been eligible for a bonus prize, far smaller than his Sh 1.7 million win.

The 50-year-old widower and father of three confirmed that he will use the money to expand his construction business, pay university and school fees for his children and finish his retirement project in his rural home in Siaya County.
