BetLion yesterday paid Sh2 million to Samuel Wambui who was the biggest winner this past weekend. The client, who placed a stake of only Sh100 on eight teams on his betslip, managed to get all his selections correct.

“I was speechless when I realised how much was at stake with the existing odds on my bet slip, at one time I thought of cashing out during the eighth game, but I challenged myself to see the game out. Honestly, it was one of the best decisions I ever made,” an excited Wambui said.

“Ensuring that our players receive their winnings as soon as any bet is settled is our number one priority. We appreciate the trust showed by our customers, who believe in us to honour payouts,” BetLion Managing Director, Spencer Okach, said.

The gaming firm currently sponsors one of Kenya’s top professional golfers, David Wakhu based at Golf Park Nairobi.

BetLion launched its operations in Kenya last year and is home to Africa’s largest Jackpot worth Sh350 million called the Goliath. Customers get a chance to win a share of 350m by correctly predicting 20 games with Sh100 entry. The firm also operates in Uganda.
