SportPesa has made history by offering the highest ever possible jackpot win in Eastern Africa with its Mega Jackpot which has risen to an all-time high of Ksh225, 767,163.
This tops the previous record amount won by one Samuel Abisai, a 27-year old salesman at the time, in May 2017, of Ksh221, 301,602.
SportPesa Chief Marketing Officer, Kelvin Twissa said:. This is just one of the things that truly makes us Africa’s number one gaming platform.”
To win this week’s Mega Jackpot, gamers will have to correctly predict outcomes of matches in the German, Italian, French and English leagues and place their bets before 6pm on Saturday, which is when the first games kick off.
“We do hope someone takes the money home soon. Our driving force is that we are Made of Winners – when someone wins, we are happy because that is just one more life (and lives) that has been changed forever because of SportPesa,” said Kelvin Twissa SportPesa Chief Marketing Officer.
“This is a huge deal for us – to have the largest jackpot amount in the country, the region and one of the largest in the continent,” he added.
SportPesa launched the Mega Jackpot in September 2016 and it remains the highest starting amount for any jackpot in East Africa. Following Abisai’s win in May last year, three gamers including a primary school teacher in Molo won Ksh111,176,374 in the same month. Each of the three Mega Jackpot Winners pocketed Ksh37, 058,791.
