Moses Kiprono, a 23-year-old Form 4 leaver is the newest multi-millionaire in town.
Mr. Moses placed a Ksh 49 bet and correctly predicted the outcome of 17 games to win himself a whooping 200 Million Kenya Shillings in the Betika Mega Jackpot on Sunday, February, 12th, 2023.
Moses now becomes the second winner of Betikas Mega jackpot, just two months after the first one was won by Eli Kipruto in December 2022.
Mr. Moses, who hails from Fort Tenan, currently lives in Kericho with a friend, having left home to hustle and fend for himself and family.
Being the second born in a family of 9 and the first son to the family, he felt obligated to hustle to support his mum and younger siblings.
Moses Kiprono completed his form 4 education in 2020 and was due to join college, but due to financial constraints, he resorted to hustling, with the hope that one day he would return to the classroom and pursue his dream career as a quantity surveyor.
Some of his younger siblings are still in school while others dropped out due to financial and health challenges.
With teary eyes, Moses narrates these circumstances that denied them quality education and a better life. But that is bound to change after this Mega win.
“Nilimaliza high school in 2020 during Corona, na sikupata chance ya kuendelea na masomo kwa sababu ya hali ya nyumbani. So I decided to do manual work ndio nipate kitu kidogo niweze kusaidia familia” Moses Narrates.
Moses is a big fan of Chelsea football club and is hoping that they finish in the top 4 and qualify for the champions league, come next season.
He spends between Sh. 50 to Sh. 100 on sportsbook and on Jackpots, with his biggest wins before the Jackpot being a Sh. 5,800 on a multi bet and about Sh. 23,000 from Jackpot bonuses.
“I usually bet on Pre-match mostly and sometimes Midweek jackpot. I don’t bet much on the Grand jackpot, although I have ever won bonuses twice for 12/17 predictions and 13/17 predictions.” Looking back home, Moses now hopes to change the face of their family and lift their living standards. “This money is going to change my life and my entire family. I am very grateful to Betika for this Jackpot and for offering me a financial advisor because to be honest, I haven’t figured out what to do with the money yet,” he added.
Speaking during the handover of the cheque, Betika’s Senior Brand Manager, Mr Eric Mwiti congratulated Moses on this big win and expressed delight on how punters have embraced the Betika Jackpot since its first winner in December.
“A lot of our customers joked that our Jackpot was really hard to win due to the games selection. We listened and tried to have a different mix of games from various football leagues around the world, and now we have Ksh 400 Million being won within two months.”
He further urged Betika customers to play responsibly and ensure that they only bet with what they can afford. “We strongly encourage all our customers to engage in responsible betting and seek help should they feel like they are spinning out of control. We are strong proponents of responsible gaming, and that is why we provide a toll-free guidance and counselling service that is available to customers on 0800-724835,” he said.
Betika’s Senior Product Manager Joseph Mbugua also expressed his joy following Moses’ win. ‘Moses, you have joined the hall of fame and your name will be written among other Betika Champions. We are happy to be awarding you today and hope that this amount will change your life and those of your loved ones for the better.”
Moses joins Betika’s Hall of fame being the second person to ever win Betika’s 200M mega jackpot alongside other winners of the Midweek Jackpot.
Moses Kiprono will receive Sh.160M and Ksh. 40 million will be paid out to the taxman. “As mentioned by my colleagues, we have a financial advisor that will be at your service, because 160 million is a lot of money if spent wisely.” Said Mutua Mutava, Betika’s Chief Finance Officer.
