Alex Odary, a painter from Vihiga County in Western Kenya is the latest winner on OdiBets – one of the few licenced betting companies in Kenya.
Alex, a father of two won, Sh445,200 twice totaling to Sh890,400 after he duplicated his 11 team multibet with a stake of Sh49/=.
The elated artisan could not hide his joy upon receiving his winnings. “This is the best day of my life, I normally bet on sms or online and today I have won. Thank you so much OdiBets,” he said.
Speaking at the awarding of the winner’s cheque at the Nairobi Headquarters, OdiBets Country Marketing manager Aggrey Sayi noted that in a bid to better the customer experience, the company has introduced the “copy betslip” feature which allows customers to copy betslips of their already placed bets and to add or reduce matches then bet again.
Alex plans to use his money to set up a paint shop for himself and a salon for his wife adding that the latter “stood with him when he was broke”.
OdiBets is one of the few licenced and tax compliant betting companies after the recent government on non-compliant betting companies in Kenya which led to the closure of gaming industry leaders like Sportpesa, Betin and BetPawa among others.
