On September 21st, 2021, 44 year old Nakuru based farmer Patrick Gachahi Macharia, wanted to place a bet he received a painful text message on his phone which read “Bundle balance is below 2mb.”
The message made him get confused and feared being time barred in placing his bet as it would take him a longer time to go the shop and by airtime for the bundles.
As he was thinking on what to do in order to ensure that the bet was analysed and placed in time before the kick off time to be in contention of winning he remembered Betika’s Bet Bila Bundles option which turned out to be his saviour in turning him into an instant millionaire.
Macharia quickly used the Betika Bila Bundles option and placed his bet where Betika’s Bet Bila Bundles option correctly predicted 15 games with Ksh15 to take home Betika’s Ksh15 Million Midweek Jackpot.
Macharia is a beneficiary of Betika’s partnership with the leading Kenya telco Safaricom to offer their customers free access to the Betika website.
Betika, one of the most popular sportsbooks in Kenya, knows this because a vast number of its users depend on a stable internet availability to use their platform.
That’s right, Betika customers on Safaricom no longer require to have data bundles to place a bet or view and analyse games on the Betika website.
The #TurudiUwanjani campaign will save Betika customers’ money on mobile data and increase their chances of winning their bets by allowing them to spend as much time as they need analysing the games and odds before placing their bets.
With Betika Bila Bundles the betting company’s punters can now enjoy free browsing on Betika.com and with sporting activities still on the comeback trail after Covid-19 there are plenty of alternative betting options on the Betika site.
“From 2018, I have been placing bets, even though I registered some wins, I never won a huge amount. I did not give up. I usually bet on multiple combinations and spend approximately Kshs. 75 bob every week. I didn’t think much about this Midweek Jackpot combination because I have registered a few periodic small wins. I watched a few games but due to my busy schedule I didn’t look at my slip again until Friday 24th September. Good things do come to those who wait,” said Mr. Macharia.
Mr. Macharia plans to add more parcels of land for farming, he will buy rare breeds of farm animals, boost his other businesses and of course carry his young family through life.
Speaking during the handover of the cheque, Betika’s Marketing Manager, Jackie Tonui expressed her delight at Mr. Macharias’ win and said ‘’At Betika, we will always ensure that we offer our customers a credible platform where they enjoy their favorite sport as they place their bets on a platform that offers them the best experience with great rewards.”
Tonui added:”Macharia not only wins Ksh12M after tax, but we have also partnered with a credible Financial Advisory firm to offer him both financial and legal advice on prudent use. We also encourage all our customers to engage in responsible gaming as they continue betting on the sports that they love’’.
Betika’s midweek jackpot also offers attractive bonuses for punters who get between 12-14 correct game predictions.”
