Joel Muhia of Narok had mixed feelings on Monday after narrowly missing out on the SportPesa Midweek Jackpot of KSHs 13,204,015 by one game.
The teacher by profession had to settle for a handsome bonus payout of KSHs1,538,535 as he became the latest millionaire courtesy of SportPesa.
Muhia had predicted a win for the visiting team in game 12 (Deportes Tolima vs Tigre) of the Midweek Jackpot selection – but the away team won – he would have become the second winner of the Mid-Week Jackpot this year.
“I placed my two Midweek Jackpot bets on Monday (April 17) at 11 p.m. and forgot about that story.
“I didn’t log in to see how the games were going because I usually lose when I do that. I received a congratulations message and I couldn’t believe it; I was happy and confused at the same time.” Maina stated.”
Since there was no winner of the Midweek Jackpot, it has risen to a mouth-watering KSHs 14,290,040.
SportPesa Midweek Jackpot Bonuses are paid out for 10 to 12 correct predictions and it only costs KSHs 99 to place your bet.
He went on to explain how the win could not have come at a better time because he has plans to better his life and that of his family.
“This win has come at the perfect time because it enables me to pay off my loans and buy land for my family.
“I believe in SportPesa and will continue to play in the hopes of one day winning the entire Midweek Jackpot. I thank God for the victory and SportPesa for coming through for me,” he concluded.
