Mkumbo pocketed the amount after precisely predicting the results of 10 matches that took place in several popular football leagues in the world, having spent a mere 500/-.

The 10bet Tanzania’s Marketing Manager George Abdulrahman handed over the cash prize to the Singida resident in a brief handover ceremony held in Dar es Salaam yesterday.

Speaking yesterday, Mkumbo said he has decided to place his bet with 10bet because of the great odds offered by the company, adding winners receive cash prizes soon.

“I am an entrepreneur and I have been betting with 10bet several times and I did not win. I knew there was a day I would win because there is no manipulation so, I encourage all passionate and enthusiastic betting participants to start betting through 10bet,” Mkumbo noted.

Mkumbo said that he is grateful to 10bet Tanzania for running mid-week jackpots, as he now feels financially empowered.

“My dream has come true because I was betting with 10bet purposely to win,” he said.

Mkumbo said he would use the money to develop his business in Dar es Salaam and Singida while helping his cousins with education matters.

10bet Tanzania Marketing Manager George Abdulrahman said they feel very proud to transform the lives of Tanzanians through their platform and various promotions.

According to Abdulrahman, many Tanzanians have been placing bets and winning cash through his firm's betting platforms to make great strides in their development.
