A FORM FOUR LEAVER IS NOW 200M RICH
Written by Obwoge Joseph on February 16, 2023
Moses Kiprono, a 23-year-old Form 4 leaver from Fort Tenan, currently living in Kericho with a friend, is the newest multi-millionaire in town.
Moses Kiprono completed his form 4 education in 2020 and but did not join college due to financial constraints, which led him to hustling, with the hope that one day he would return to classroom and pursue his dream career as a quantity surveyor.
“Nilimaliza high school in 2020 during Corona, na sikupata chance ya kuendelea na masomo kwa sababu ya hali ya nyumbani. So I decided to do manual work ndio nipate kitu kidogo niweze kusaidia familia” Kiprono narrates.
Being the second born in a family of 9 and the first son to the family, he left home to hustle and fend for himself and family, (his mum and younger siblings).
Kiprono spends between Sh. 50 to Sh. 100 on sportsbook and on Jackpots, with his biggest wins before the Jackpot being a Sh. 5,800 on a multibet and about Sh. 23,000 from Jackpot bonuses.
He placed a Ksh 49 bet and correctly predicted the outcome of 17 games to win himself a whooping 200 Million Kenya Shillings in the Betika Mega Jackpot becoming the second winner of the jackpot, just two months after Eli Kipruto won it in December 2022.
“I usually bet on Pre-match mostly and sometimes Midweek jackpot. I don’t bet much on the Grand jackpot, although I have ever won bonuses twice for 12/17 predictions and 13/17 predictions.”
Speaking during the handover of the cheque, Betika’s Senior Brand Meister, Mr Eric Mwiti congratulated Moses Kiprono on this big win and expressed delight on how punters have embraced the Betika Jackpot since it’s first winner in December.
“A lot of our customers joked that our Jackpot was really hard to win due to the games selection. We listened and tried to have a different mix of games from various football leagues around the world, and now we have Ksh 400 Million being won within two months,” He said.
He further urged Betika customers to play responsibly and ensure that they only bet with what they can afford.
“We strongly encourage all our customers to engage in responsible betting and seek help should they feel like they are spinning out of control. We are strong proponents of responsible gaming, and that is why we provide a toll-free guidance and counselling service that is available to customers on 0800-724835,” He added.
Looking back home, Moses Kiprono now hopes to change the face of their family and lift their living standards.
