The Mayor of Ekiti, a Sportybet punter, wins N40 million, while 1500 others smile to the bank.
One SportyBet customer is rejoicing after his N62,000 accumulator on Saturday’s football game paid up, making him N40 million richer.
The client, Mayor, from Nigeria’s southwest Ekiti State kept his total odds straightforward with 371.86 made up of matches from prominent football clubs other than the English premier league.
As the only individual from his state to have won this much money from the Sudeep Ramnani-owned betting company up until that point, Mayor had been the bookies’ worst nightmare. He had won several games, even beating Mr. Bayo’s record.
Here’s the bet:
- Ticket ID: 246378
- Total Return: 39,938,000.00
- Total Stake: 68,000.00
- Free Bet Gift: -62,000.00
- Total Odds: 371.86
- Total Bonus: 15,171,799.32
Using the American microblogging service Twitter, the mayor of Ekiti proudly claims;
He claimed to have turned more than 1500 players in the same game into millionaires.
“Hello my fellow millionaires,” he said.
He continues, “We have over 1500 millionaires on board right now… proof dropping soon.”
When MandyNews.com visited the mayor of Ekiti and sportybet-related discussion on Twitter, we noticed that a large number of wagerers had come out with their testimonies.
He added that he regretted not betting on the game twice, which would have earned him N80 million.
“Not playing the game with another 62k is the most painful thing that has happened to me this year .. cause i wanted to,” he said.
Now that Mr. Bayo has been forgotten, the mayor of Ekiti is the newest Twitter celebrity.
Take note: Don’t suggest that you want to run and start playing every game you see on the Mayor of Ekiti’s timeline because he won. Betting is spiritual because the bookmaker will collect from his followers the money they lost this week the following week.
Recall what transpired with Mr. Bayo. After all the publicity and the numerous losses from his supporters, no major win has occurred since.
Congratulations to the Mayor of Ekiti.
