Mr. Richard Githongori claimed to have placed a stake in the Betika Super League Mega Jackpot where he won over a million shillings but the gaming firm voided his winnings.
In a claim posted online by Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi, Betika quotes the law as the reason for not releasing the money to Mr Githungori.
“Following from the above, the Midweek Jackpot winnings are not payable as all transactions from the date of death of the registered owner of the Betika account are void,” Betika’s letter to Mr Richard Githongori states in part.
Richard Githongori had placed a bet in Betika’s midweek jackpot using his father’s account. Turns out his father is deceased and when the gaming firm asked him for papers to process payments, he brought 6 documents.
The documents include;- a burial permit for his father Mr. John Wachanga Githunguri, certificate of death, copy ID, PIN Certificate, MPESA statements and his national ID copy.
Hi Cyprian, I’m Richard Githogori. I won 1 million on 12/6/2023 with Betika using my late dad’s phone, who passed away on 23/2/2023. The company asked for documents to confirm, but now they’re refusing to give me the money. Please help me with this.
The letter copied to the Betting Control and Licensing Board (BCLB), gave the reason for voiding the winnings as a contravention of laws pertaining to betting.
“You may not access services by means of another person’s account. Should you attempt to access the service by means of another person’s account, we reserve the right to immediately close all your accounts and bar you from future use of any of our services,” Betika wrote.
It added, “You may not transfer your account to any other player or third party”.
