Three lucky Kenyans have already been selected to get into the draw to win the guaranteed Betsafe Super Jackpot worth Sh. 40 million.
Bernard Kanyi a mechanic from Kasarani, Joseph Mutinda a marketing professional from Kahawa Sukari, and Joab Opiri from Bondo, Siaya County, received the call from Betsafe on Monday 2nd May, informing them of their entrance into the draw which puts them on track to winning Sh. 40m on Sunday May 21.
Similar to the other lucky contestants, Joab Opiri expressed his excitement at being selected for the draw, stating that he is on tenterhooks waiting for the final draw.
“I can’t celebrate too loudly yet because I am at work, but when I get back home I will be jumping up and down. If I win the Sh. 40 million, I will open a business, build a home and pay school fees for my children,” said a clearly excited Joab to the Betsafe customer care representative during the call to inform him of his selection.
The three were selected, by a random process overseen by the Betting Control and Licensing Board, from a pool of 111 players who correctly guessed the outcome of 10 out of 17 football matches in the Betsafe Super Jackpot.
Pauline Opal, a representative of the Betting Control and Licensing Board, was present to verify the veracity of the random selection process.
“I have verified that the process is open and transparent, and it suits the requirements of the BCLB for the conduct of such draws,” she said.
Seven more contestants will be picked for a chance at the grand prize, with three to be selected on 8th May and four on 15th May through a similarly random process from players of the Super Jackpot, ahead of the grand draw on 21st May.
