The 2016/2017 football came to an end, but not at BetPawa where Kenya’s newest millionare was unveiled.
Denish Otieno Lango from Siaya County joined the exclusive millionaires club, thanks to a massive win over the weekend with Kenya’s best mobile Sports betting site - BetPawa. Denish, who joined BetPawa just this year, could not hide his joy as he was received at the BetPawa Kenya offices for his triumph.
“I still cannot believe it. I have the money in my account, but it all looks like a dream,” he said ecstatically on Tuesday.
Denish, who doubles up as a pastor in his hometown of Siaya, says he was referred by a close friend. Interestingly, rather than just bet on single matches, Denish says he decided to adopt a different tactic.

“My strategy has been the ‘make your own jackpot’ tact. Here, I would pick between 20 - 30 matches, and place a stake of between Ksh. 1- Ksh, 200. Thanks to the BetPawa bonus, I would then stand a chance to win between Ksh.1,000,000 and Ksh. 2,500,000, “ he said.
The lucky bettor, selected 25 matches that were set to be played over a couple of days; From 13th March to 21st March. His final matches fell on the last day of the Premier league.
“On the last day, I realized that 20 out of the 25 matches were correct. I decided to pray all along, and could not even eat. When the final match ended, I really celebrated with my family and even started planning on how we would use the money,” the winner said.
“I would recommend BetPawa to any bettors. They have the lowest stake of Ksh.1, have the best odds, an excellent customer service where they are always available to help and also their win bonus is just mind blowing.I enjoyed the 100% win bonus and that’s what propelled me to this big win,” he added.
With his 25 selections, Denish won Ksh. 941,968.25. However, having picked 25 matches, he qualified for a 100% win bonus, which meant that his winnings would be doubled and that’s how he took home a cool Ksh. 1,883,936.49
