Image
International online betting platform, Betway just gave a 25 year old student in Enugu, Kenechukwu, 3.5 million Naira in a day. Some people just have a good head.

This dude didn’t do anything special o. He simply correctly predicted the first four teams to score in four different English leagues picking Aston Villa (Championship), Swansea (FA Cup), Wycombe (League 1), Macclesfield (League 2) in his selection and that is how he won.  Kenechukwu, an avid Chelsea FC fan, won the 4-To-Score prize pool after it had reached the maximum of NGN 3,500,000, which was rolled over from NGN 3,000,000 the week before.  Kenechukwu joins an ever-growing number of sports bettors in Nigeria who’ve hit jackpot with Betway in recent weeks.

Instead of just applauding the young man’s good fortune, you too can act, and win big on Betway’s 4-To-Score promotion. And guess what, 4-To-Score is free to play. You don’t need to wager, you simply just predict.  Visit www.betway.com.ng to open an account if you don’t al…
