Evanson Kiprotich and his family are set to be cushioned from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic after he clinched Sh500,000 courtesy of BangBet’s monthly Casino Lucky Draw.

The Muthiga resident, an accountant by profession, is one of those who suffered reduced earnings after his employer imposed a pay cut following the disruption the pandemic caused on businesses, but last Thursday, that pain was alleviated, thanks to BangBet.

The Baringo native staked just Sh500 on his favourite Lucky football game and walked away with 1,000 times the amount following the monthly draw.

Kiprotich has, however, had to endure numerous losses for the last year, having signed up to the BangBet Lucky Casino in May 2020, but he credits patience for the victory.

“I always knew that there is a season for winning and a season for defeat. That is why I did not give up,” said Kiprotich, who was accompanied by his wife, when he picked his cheque from BangBet Marketing Manager Kelvin Maundu on Friday.  His wife, who lost her job due to the pandemic, will now see her frustration turned into joy after Kiprotich revealed that he will use the money to start a business for her.

Meanwhile, William Nyaga, a matatu driver, who lives in Githurai 45 walked away with Sh100,000 from last week’s Weekly Casino Draw.

“I will use the money to buy a bull and take it to my home county of Murang’a,” said the father of three, who staked Sh100 on his favourite game, Lucky Poker.
