SportPesa : We have a MegaJackpot winner!
"We have a mega jackpot winner Sh208,733,619," it is the new message from SportPesa's social media pages.
This is the fourth time the Jackpot has been won in Kenya. One need to correctly predict outcomes of 17 games. Someone just did it. Wow!
The new multi-millionaire is Cosmas Korir. He vied for and lost the Konoin parliamentary seat in Bomet county on a CCM ticket in 2017.
The betting company announced on Sunday that he had won Sh208,733,619.
Former winners were Samuel Abisai who won the first jackpot of Sh221 million and Gordon Ogada who won the biggest jackpot in SportPesa history by taking home Sh230,742,881.
The taxman will also be smiling all the way to the bank since 20% will be deducted from Korir's win as stipulated in the just passed Finance Bill 2018.
