Our correspondent also spoke with a 44 year old teacher, who won N500,000 and N800,000 on different occasions. He said, “Happiness is the first thing that came to every mind seeing that huge amount of money was given to me with just N500 ticket. I was very happy.”

He further said, “Winning is not a sure thing because it varies but I win anytime I play, but it is not my doing, it is God’s doing. So, I will advice people to keep playing Soccer Bet.”

ENCOMIUM Weekly also spoke to more beneficiaries and players of the game. They talked about why they play soccer bet, how much they have put into the game and how they have been winning since they started playing the game…

 

TIMILEHIN

Do you play soccer bet and why?

Yes, I play betting. It is a good way of making money instead of watching football with your money, why don’t you make your money like the footballers do. I love football but I can’t just be spending money to watch every week without getting my money from it.

So, as I am watching premier league and the rest of the leagues every weekend, I am calculating how much I have made or lost.

How much have you put into the game?

A lot of money! I cannot remember. Sometimes out of annoyance I will just tear the ticket during the match that is when I have played that one team will not score and then they do, or that one player will score and he now gets a red card.

How you ever won?

Yes! I have won money if not I would have stopped playing.

How much have you won?

The highest I have won is N15,000 and I play with N300.

 

QUADRI

Do you play soccer bet and why?

Yes, I play betting and I have been playing since I was in SS2 in 2013.

How you ever won?

Yes, I have made money.

How much have you won?

Last season, I made more money than ever. When PSG won Chelsea in the Champions League, that week I won N25,000. But I have also lost a lot of money too.

 

ROTIMI

Do you play soccer bet and why?

Yes, I play betting. I have passion for football. i really love it. It’s like making money from what I love.

How much have you put into it?

I don’t know how much money I have lost but I like playing safe.

Have you won good money?

Yes, I have but it depends on your combination. You can play with M500 and win N15,000 or N120,000 depending on how the person is playing.

 

SEGUN

Do you play soccer bet and why?

Yes, it is to make money. I cannot be wasting money on football houses watching all the matches without making money from it.

How much have you put into it?

I don’t play every time. There are times that I will play for three months and will not win anything, but once I stop for some time and resume again I must win.

Have you won big money?

Yes, I used to win.

How much have you won?

I have won N10,000 at once but the highest I have won is N25,000 that was when I bought this phone (shows the reporter a Blackberry Q5). So, betting has helped me and I work too. For me, betting is not a job but I do it for the fun of it and make extra cash.

 

BOYE

Do you play soccer bet and why?

Yes, I play betting. I don’t see anything wrong in it so that I can make some money. It is better than Yahoo where people dupe someone but this one you are using your knowledge to play the game. It is putting your money where your mouth is.

Have you won big money?

Yes, I have. Nobody can win every time, it is not possible.

How much have you won?

I was lucky but before I won after the first time it was more than three months. But the first time I tried it I won N65,000 with N300.

 

CHIMA

Do you play soccer bet and why?

I play it but not every time. I play once in a while. Sometimes I don’t have time to go and sit down in the shops to forecast, so I tell my brother to play for me and I will give him money. But if I don’t go to work, I will go to the bet shop myself to forecast.

Have you won big money?

Yes, I have won.

How much have you won?

I won N15,000 last season in the Champions League.
