Ksh.100 Stake Wins Millions for Soccer Enthusiast on BetLion !

Tuesday, July 16, 2019, instantly turned around the life and future of a soccer enthusiast, through a meagre Ksh.100 stake he had placed on BetLion, in Nairobi, Kenya.

BetLion paid a whooping Ksh. 2,000,000 in prize winnings to Mr. Samuel Wambui who turned out as the biggest winner in last weekend’s soccer action. This enthusiast had only 8 teams on his bet slip, and used just ksh.100.

Mr. Samuel, attributing his stroke of success to keen team and individual player analysis, was still dazed by the glare of his success, when he collected his dummy check.

“I was completely speechless when I realized how much was at stake with the existing odds on my bet slip, at one time I thought of cashing out during the 8th game but I challenged myself to see the game out. Honestly, it was one of the best decisions I ever made.” said an excited Mr. Samuel Wambui.

At hand to receive the excited client at BetLion, was the Managing Director, Mr. Spencer Okach. The MD emphasized the firm’s keen policy for attractive odds and timely pay outs to stake winners.

“Ensuring that our players receive their winnings as soon as any bet is settled is our number one priority. We appreciate the trust showed by our customers, who believe in us to honor payouts, on time.” Says the Managing Director.

Congratulations, Mr. Samuel Wambui.

Breaking News – List of Betting Companies with Renewed Licenses in Kenya!

The spotlight on betting companies is not dimming just yet. This is due to a drawn out dispute with the Kenyan Government on the revision of taxes due and owed. As such the government is yet to renew business licenses on most betting companies.

However, a lucky pack of 7 firms have managed to have their business licenses renewed. This is the list of companies that have secured the elusive green light to operate:

  • BetLion
  • MCheza
  • Kwikbet
  • OdiBets
  • Gamemania
  • Betpalace
  • Betika

The Kenya Government has zeroed in on the industry with reports of most firms failing to prove that they were tax compliant as required by the Betting Control and Licensing Board (BCLB). Subsequently, a multi-agency team was constituted to probe the betting and gaming companies.

The most damning of the findings of the Board during the vetting is that the companies made a cumulative amount of Ksh.204 billion last year, but paid a partly Ksh. 4 billion in taxes. The crackdown on the firms also brings a threat to their senior non-Kenyan managers – who risks possible deportation.
