With the year winding down, John Matata, a 41-year-old from Nairobi with roots in Machakos, struck gold in the SportPesa Mega Jackpot. Missing just one out of 17 predictions, Matata bagged a hefty 10,315,693 shillings, promising a festive season like no other for his family.
“I am extremely delighted for winning this week’s Mega Jackpot Bonus by SportPesa. I will take my time to plan and ensure that this money helps and changes our lives as a family for the better,” said the jubilant father of two. This windfall is set to transform the family’s Christmas into a truly merry one.
Matata’s win adds to the string of lucky bettors this year, with 10 others having bagged more than ten million shillings from the SportPesa Mid-week and Mega Jackpot Bonus. Just a week before, Mr. Solomon Mnang’at from Kapenguria pocketed 4,791,803 shillings with 15/17 correct predictions.
Betting Since 2016: A Word of Caution
A SportPesa patron since 2016, Matata advises fellow punters to bet responsibly. He’s particularly concerned about young people getting carried away with gambling during the holiday season, especially with the Mega Jackpot currently over 340 million shillings.
SportPesa’s Festive Rewards
Beyond the big jackpots, SportPesa is spreading cheer with its ‘Jishikie Kienyeji Hii Krisi’ Christmas campaign. So far, 60 players have reaped rewards, with 42 winners taking home 5,000 shillings each week. The campaign finale promises a Christmas shopping bonanza worth 100,000 shillings for one lucky winner with an inspiring story of their year.
For John Matata and his family, 2023’s festive season will undoubtedly be one for the books, thanks to SportPesa’s Mega Jackpot. As for other punters, Matata’s story serves as a reminder of the highs and lows of betting – a chance for big wins but also a call for responsible gambling.
