Agnes Kinya, a 28-yr old unemployed teacher by profession, is the latest Shs15 Million Midweek Jackpot winner thanks to Betika. Agnes, who operates a roadside chips kiosk, correctly predicted 15 games with Ksh15 to take home Betika’s Ksh15 Million Midweek Jackpot.
She is the first woman to win Betika’s Midweek Jackpot and could not hide her joy at being the latest millionaire in the country. Agnes started betting in 2016 with no significant wins, which led her to join and try her luck on the Betika platform, she registered a few periodic small wins that motivated her to continue placing bets with the sports betting firm, and tried the different products and market options provided by the betting platform.
“On 21st February, while in Makindu, I picked my 15-game selection and for some reason, I had a particularly good feeling about this bet. I even called my husband and told him to expect some good news! In the evening, I watched a few games at home and dosed off but woke up around 12:38am and when I checked my phone, I saw that I had correctly predicted all 15 games! I quickly told my husband about the news and he thought I was just joking!! When he saw my bet slip, he was very happy and excited! I could barely sleep the rest of the night’, said Agnes.
“From January, I have been placing bets every week, spending up to Ksh100 every weekend and even though I registered some wins, I never won a huge amount. I did not give up because I love analyzing games and betting,” she remarked.
As for her future plans, Agnes plans to build residential flats with her prize money to earn her and her family sustainable income.
Speaking during the handing over of the cheque, Betika’s Business Head, John Mbatiah expressed his delight at Agnes’ win.
‘’At Betika, we will always ensure that we offer our customers a credible platform where they enjoy their favorite sport as they place their bets on a platform that offers them the best experience with great rewards. Agnes not only wins Ksh15M but we have also partnered with a credible Financial Advisory firm to offer her both financial and legal advice on prudent use.
