Maina Kariuki and George Simbiri plus their friends will be enjoying an all-expense paid trip to Egypt, courtesy of betting firm, BetLion.
Participants for the promotion were selected by depositing money and placing a bet through their Betlion account, every bet counting as an entry for the draw.
The promotion, by Africa’s largest jackpot at KSh350 million, ran from 8 April to 31 May.
“As a sports lover, when I saw the promotion, it excited me. With my fingers crossed every time I played with BetLion, I prayed to be one of the winnners,” a elated Kariuki said when he received his ticket from BetLion Kenya CEO Spencer Okatch.
“When I received the call that I was the winner, I couldn’t believe it, but I am so happy to be going to cheer on Kenya at AFCON. Thank you BetLion.”
Okatch said: “BetLion made a promise to be a rewarding platform, these winners here are just but the beginning.
“There will be more sporting safaris but locally and abroad, we seek to make this promotion a brand asset, Kenyans should brace themselves for more sport tourism.”
