A mechanic from Kisumu County has won Sh818, 496 on Odibets after placing a bet with Sh3.

The winner, identified only as Ogutu predicted four corners in four different matches on the Odibets’ e-sports platform which comprises of Fifa simulated games.

Ogutu said he got to know about Odibets after his team received playing kits from Odibets courtesy of the Odimtaani initiative that saw the betting firm kit over 3,000 teams participating in county leagues countrywide.

“My team, Gor Artisans was one of the beneficiaries of the Odimtaani initiative early this year. This prompted me to start betting on Odibets not knowing one day a big day like this will come,” the team manager said when journalists visited him at his workplace.

“I want to invest the money in my garage business as well as the team I’m managing,” the jovial mechanic told journalists.

Odibets has virtual games on their website for punters especially after European leagues were halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Virtual betting is a kind of betting availed by some bookies, in Kenya and the world, where customers can place bets on computer-generated games that function just like real matches with real teams and players.

The football matches are ‘real’ but much shorter, so you don’t have to wait for a whole 90 minutes for the match to end. The virtual matches usually take about two minutes each, but the winning value remains the same as those of actual matches and their odds.

A review on Odi League, for example, one can place their virtual bets on various markets just like they would on real sports bets.

Punters also have the opportunity to experience incredible deals with boosted odds. For instance, new clients get to receive a Sh20 bonus on their first bet on OdiLeague.

Are you the next lucky winner? Join the virtual betting bandwagon to stand a chance to win like Ogutu who’s now smiling all the way to the bank. [Standard Sports]
