Man wins Sh200,000 from a 5-shilling bet

A lucky punter from Mombasa just won Ksh. 209,655 on a 12-team multi-bet thanks to amazing odds and win bonuses from BetPawa Kenya.

The fortunate punter turned his Sh5 into a fortune, a win he says came at the right moment in time for Christmas!

The unnamed gambler watched as 11 of his selected picks went according to plan and just one match remained.

His last selection was a PSL encounter pitting PSL log leaders Cape Town City against SuperSport United.

It was the visiting team, SuperSport who went up first. In the 81st minute, Reneilwe Letsholonyane teed up Nkhatha to slot home, 1-0.

With nine minutes on the clock, and with a huge possible win seemingly going up in smoke, Lebogang Manyama poked home from close range in stoppage time, to send the lucky punter into a frenzy.

“I was following the tie online, and when the goal was scored, I just couldn't contain myself,” he recalls.

The BetPawa Kenya customer had a win bonus of Sh69,885 added to his winnings.

BetPawa Kenya country manager Dos Kariuki congratulated the winner, saying they are happy for their winner.

“This should be a sunny Christmas for him! That is what we are made of. You bet small, and win big. We encourage our clients to bet with any amount from 1 shilling, and they too could be winners!”
