Ardent football fan Maurice Vidija Muliango is the newest millionaire in town having just bagged Ksh21,466,422 winnings after correctly predicting the outcome of 13 football matches correctly in the SportPesa Mid-Week Jackpot.
It is second time lucky for Maurice, a die-hard Arsenal fan, having previously won Ksh1.8 million in multi-bets and a bonus of Ksh26,000 through gaming with SportPesa. The delighted winner couldn’t hide his delight for his biggest win yet saying he is now unstoppable.
“First, I would like to thank SportPesa for the transparency in the gaming process. Secondly, I would like to encourage fellow gamers to never give up. Keep predicting the matches and very soon you will get it right and be rewarded. While we do this as a hobby, the winnings help us build ourselves, provide better for our families and transform lives,” said an elated Maurice.
He revealed the satisfaction one derives from predicting the outcome of a game correctly, a satisfaction that is even sweeter when one is rewarded. He has now set his sight on the mega jackpot.
Maurice, a civil servant, says that he has been gaming since its introduction in Kenya. He sees it as a way of further supporting his passion – football. With his winnings, he plans to inject more capital in his investment projects that will ensure his future is secure when he retires from the civil service. He will also plan a special treat for his family and close friends.
Earlier in the year, Mutuku Muoka, a businessman in Nairobi also bagged Ksh12,444,453 in a midweek jackpot.
SportPesa has been involved in supporting community projects across the country in the areas of maternal health, menstrual health and sports. Most recently, the company equipped a maternity wing at Ndarawetta Dispensary in Bomet County in addition to sponsoring Heels4Pads, an organisation that champions menstrual hygiene among girls. SportPesa also gave a shot in the arm to the Wazee Pamoja League with a Ksh800,000 sponsorship.
