Betway Ghana has presented a cheque of GHS 990, 650 to historic jackpot winner Kwame Fosuhene,
The 23-year-old resident of Kumasi received the prize during a short ceremony at the Betway office in Accra on Friday.
Mr Fosuhene made history by becoming the biggest winner of Betway’s betting games since they started operating in Ghana last year.
“I started to patronise Betway about a year ago because it was very convenient for me,” said Fosuhene
“I did not have to leave my home or walk for a distance as I used to do with another betting company. It is really simple to bet with Betway.
“On Betway, I needed to make picks, analysed a few trends and made my choices. Some were very obvious but one thing I will tell people is that in betting, never pin your hopes on the big teams. They never win all the time.”
Betway Marketing Manager Kwabena Oppong-Nkrumah noted that “We are very pleased about Kwame’s win.”
He added that “One of the things we have always wanted was a chance to show that anyone that winning in the Betway jackpot was very real.
“It also shows those who are regular players of games offered by Betway that they can win a lot more especially now that we have added the In-Game Betting feature which allows people to bet as the games go on in real time.”
Betway Ghana as part of efforts to help Fosuhene promised to get him a financial advisor to assist him on how he would wisely use his new-found wealth.
