A taxi driver from Embakasi John Githaiga has won Ksh505,692 on Odibets after an 11-team multibet prediction that sailed through.
A jovial Githaiga mentioned that he had predicted an over 2.5 goals for all the eleven matches in his bet slip.
“At first I thought I was dreaming when I saw the congratulations message on my phone, I had placed my bets two days in advance and hoped to win though I wasn’t sure if I would have won,” said an elated John as he spoke to journalists.
Githaiga, who boasts of having placed his bet via SMS, stated that he was going to better the lives of his family and expand his taxi business with his winnings.
“I placed my bet of 11 matches to end at over 2.5 goals each just for the fun of it as I am an ardent football fan and it went through much to my surprise,” said Githaiga as he received his cheque from Odibets lead bookmaker Daniel Macharia.
SMS betting is quickly gaining traction among punters in the country and this has seen betting firms venture into the SMS betting bandwagon and Odibets clearly has not been left behind.
