The trio garnered Sh. 101,821 each as they missed the jackpot with only one game after correctly predicted 12 out of 13 matches.

Nkunja, a high school teacher in Meru County, has been trying his luck for three months without giving up and with only Sh.49 stake, the tutor will be smiling all the way to the bank after the stars finally aligned for him.

He first got the call about his win when he was in the staffroom marking student’s assignments a few days after the schools were opened for Term Two.

“I was happy when I received the call and I had to leave class in order to answer. I was extremely happy and could not contain my emotions. I thank God since I was extremely low financially.”

He says the money will help finance school fees for his children and the remaining amount he will open a business for his wife.

He encourages his fellow Kenyans to continue playing with as one day their time might come.

On her side, Karimi Njagi, a businesswoman from Ruiru, says she carefully analysed the games on paper before placing the bet as she went on to correctly predict 12 out of 13 outcomes.

“I received a call at around 1:00pm informing me that I am one of the lucky winners. I shared the news with my husband who indeed helped me confirm the win.”

For Karimi, the big win is a clear indication that women too can participate and win.

She plans to use her winnings to boost her boutique business and help her husband pay for tuition fees.

James Makau, a resident of Umoja, motivated by his wife's support, deposited Ksh. 300 into his phone and started placing bets, carefully analysing each one.

The next morning, he received a congratulatory message from informing him of his win.

He plans to open a business for the wife where he will help in sourcing materials for the shop.
