History was made in the sports betting business in Nigeria on Monday when BetWay paid  ₦50 million to jackpot winner, Emeka Cephas.

Expectedly, the winner, who is a fan of Manchester United, was elated at an impressive presentation ceremony at the company’s office. 

The Estate Agent won the N50m after betting with N13, 000 on 10 different games played over the weekend.

According to him “I want to say thank you to Betway for fulfilling their promises. They have paid me to the last kobo. This is unlike my precious experience with another company, which still owes me.

“This is my biggest winning since I have been forecasting and I am happy to have received all my money.”

According to Betway Marketing Manager,  Lere Awokoya , this is the second biggest win. A customer actually won N58m in 2015 now we  have someone winning N50m.

He assured that BetWay was easily accessible online as customers need not go through stress.

The Deputy Director/Zonal Cordinator for National Lottery Regulatory Commission, Nkiru Onuzulu, congratulated the winner, while applauding Betway for always keeping their promise.

She affirmed that as  a regulatory body, they had a responsibility to ensure that all operators keep their promise to  stakeholders
