Fortune smiles on 40- year-old Osasebo Uwadiae as he won N11.42 million on the coupon of Nigeria’s leading sports betting company, Winners Golden Bet at the weekend.
Uwadiae, who hails from Ofunegbe town in Ovia South West Local Government in Edo state, south-south Nigeria, said he played the coupon with the sum of N30,000.
“This is the second time I would play sports betting, and my choice has always been Winners Golden Bet coupon,” Uwadiae said at the corporate office of Winners Golden Bet in Lagos when he came all the way from Edo state to receive his jackpot.
An elated Uwadiae said winning the N11 milliom was a miracle as he had been jobless since three weeks ago when his vehicle was out of use due to technical fault.
On how he will spend the jackpot, Uwadiae said he would judiciously invest the money in shares.
“I won’t use this money on my transport business, rather I will invest it in share to get more money because I want to help poor people,” he said.
Uwadiae said he would like to show appreciation to his wife, Eki Esasebor for standing by him, the chairman of Ovia-South West Local Government, Mr. Morrison, the paramount ruler of Ofunegbe town, Chief Kingsley Ekwuogie and others for their support during his hard times.
He, however, thanked the management of Winners Golden Bet for keeping to its promise of prompt payment of winnings.
“My profound appreciation goes to Winners Golden Bet for keeping to their promise of paying instantly. I never believe I could collect this money immediately I get to their office,” he said.
