Football fan Imbali wins Sh10m jackpot


Thirty-three-year-old Arsenal fan Faustine Imbali is Kenya’s latest millionaire. Imbali won a cool Sh10 million jackpot from sports betting firm Betin Kenya on Friday. He becomes the first winner of the jackpot introduced two weeks ago.

The father of two was presented with a Sh10 million cheque by Betin Kenya’s Chief Financing Officer Jackson Wamae in Nairobi. Imbali, a business man, started betting two months ago and hit the jackpot on his second attempt after his predictions were spot on.


“I used Sh2,300 to bet and I was lucky enough to have won two jackpots of Sh5 million each. I am happy because I used little money and I have now reaped big,” a beaming Imbali said. The AFC Leopards fan said he would invest part of the money in his clothes business and vowed to continue betting.

“In life, you always have to take risks and being a regular better, I believe it was my lucky day. Not everyone is patient enough to lose money and still keep betting,” he added.

Wamae said Betin Kenya will continue to ensure its clients receive maximized winnings.

“The speed with which someone has won only demonstrates how appealing and competitive our fixtures and odds are across all products,” Wamae said. Betin Kenya is part of GoldBet Group, one of Europe and Africa’s largest gaming operators.
