A lucky Kenyan, Samuel Abisai has won more than $2m (£1.5m) for correctly predicting 17 football matches in a competition run by betting company SportPesa. The payout is set to be one of the biggest in Africa. The winner will be unveiled at an event in the capital, Nairobi.
The consumer said he met his friend with whom they bet and as they were discussing what to do with the millions a call came through.
The CEO advised the winner, who was screaming, to end his night out, to which he said, ‘I’m going home right away'. "
It also said the winner placed $2 on two mega jackpot picks in which he had to predict the outcomes of 17 games selected by SportPesa.
