Sports betting platform Blackbet.ng has announced the winner of its N500,000 prize in their just concluded World Cup Giveaway.
Mr Abidemi Egbaiyelo who doubles as an Educational Consultant and a Tutor was still in shock as he walked into the Blackbet office to receive his winnings.
Mr. Abidemi qualified for the draw after he placed his first bet – a N500 bet on the round of 16 World Cup match between Croatia and Russia. Having lost the bet, Mr Abidemi was not expecting any winnings and he showed this shock when he received the news of being the winner of half a million naira.
When asked how he felt on receiving the news, he narrated:
“When I received the news I thought it was a scam, how can I be the winner, out of all the people who entered for the draw.
“My wife even asked if I knew anyone in the company or if I submitted my name to anyone at the company for them to pick me as the winner; but sincerely I don’t know anyone in the company.”
Mr. Abidemi got his cheque of N500,000. He went on to say he wasn’t sure what to do with the money because he never expected to win such an amount. He hinted at investing the money in stocks or real estate.
