Fortune has smiled on a Port Harcourt-based estate agent, Emeka Cephas, who won N50 million after staking with just N13, 000, sports betting firm, Betway Nigeria, announced yesterday.
In a statement by the Marketing manager, Lere Awokoya, Emeka played a 10-game accumulator to win this sum.
He equally affirmed that this win is the second biggest payout in Nigeria’s sports betting history.
“Nigerians appreciate our love of the game and commitment to prompt payment. Having been operational in the Nigerian market for almost two years, we are here for real. As a measure of our commitment, we will always keep our promise.
“We are a premium International brand, with fully localized operations in Nigeria,” he said.
He disclosed that the Betway WinBoost feature played a major role in Emeka’s fortune, saying, “he actually won N40 million with total odds of 3,077, but the WinBoost fetched him an additional N10m, bringing his total win to N50 million.”
Awokoya disclosed that the cheque presentation would be done today in Lagos.
Emeka joins a Ghanaian, Kwame Fosuhene, who won GHc 990,000 (N66m) from Betway Ghana recently.
