Kenya’s lead online-gaming firm SportPesa added yet another millionaire to their long line of winners as they officially unveiled 32-year-old Esbon Macharia who won the mouthwatering Ksh. 27,041,645 SportPesa Midweek Jackpot on Tuesday afternoon.
The hardware businessman, who hails from Thika town in Kiambu County, ushered in the Christmas season in perfect style as he became the latest multimillionaire in the country after correctly predicting the outcome of all the thirteen games in the one-day 27 Million Midweek Jackpot that ran on 24 November 2023. Using only 99 shillings, the father of three turned his life from a hardware man to a ‘soft life ambassador’ after claiming the staggering windfall from SportPesa in a matter of six hours, ultimately clinching his biggest ever win.
“I have been playing with SportPesa for about one year now. I have won in the past, but this is the highest amount I have ever gotten. I didn’t not even know that I had won this money at first because when I placed the bet, I failed to check on its progress. On Saturday, SportPesa called to inform me that I am the winner. I was overwhelmed and up to today I am still speechless,” the young businessman confessed. In line with SportPesa’s goal of turning lives around, the confident Macharia gave a brief snippet of how the over 27 Million will play a big part in transforming his life for the better. “I have so many ongoing projects that I am taking care of.
This 27 million will go a long way in helping me to sort these out comfortably. My family and kids who are also in school will also be well taken care of after this win,” he said. “This thing is real. I have won and I am a millionaire now courtesy of SportPesa,” he concluded. You can also be a winner. It only costs KSHs 99 to place your bet and don’t forget that SportPesa offers generous bonuses starting from 10 correct predictions. Before Macharia, Seth Mokua was the last midweek millionaire to be minted by SportPesa after winning KSHs 24,665,485 on September 2.
Mokua’s win, the third of the year, followed Jackson Mutiso who had been the last winner of the Midweek Jackpot as his stellar efforts saw him win KSHs 20,892,489 on June 6. Mutiso’s win came just two months after Stephen Ojwang’ squared up against the humongous SportPesa Midweek Jackpot and came out on top, becoming an instant millionaire.
The 50-year-old from Siaya also managed to correctly predict all 13 games in the Midweek Jackpot as he won an astounding KSHs 23,027,939. The ardent Gor Mahia fan affirmed his commitment to continue playing with SportPesa and his eyes are now on the bigger prize, the SportPesa Mega Jackpot that currently stands at over 335M.”
