Premier Bet are used to seeing players turn modest sums into jaw-dropping returns, but Tanzania’s latest example has sent positive shockwaves throughout the betting community and beyond.
Our valued customer Kelvin Donatus is living proof that fortune does indeed favour the brave, with his intuitive 10-fold football accumulator reaping him a whopping 96,522,760 TSH from a stake of only 100,000 TSH during the early hours of July 19.
Mr Donatus went against the grain by selecting ten 1st half results, rather than the more popular full-time result market. His accumulator was automatically priced by our traders on site at odds of 766.26: it contained three picks each from the Scottish League Cup, Brazilian Serie B and UEFA Champions League qualifying, as well as one from the Copa Sudamericana.
Our latest big winner correctly backed six of the ten 1st half outcomes to be draws at odds-on prices individually, while having the foresight to predict that Cove Rangers, Ayr United, HSK Zrinjski Mostar and Falkirk would all be leading when the referee’s first half whistle was blown.
After each of his opening eight selections remarkably came in for him, Mr Donatus was nervously awaiting the results of the first halves between Ponte Preta vs Juventude in Brazil and Universitario vs Cortinhians in Peru, requiring both outcomes to be a draw in order to win a life-changing amount of money.
With both first halves remaining goalless approaching circa 04:15am Tanzanian time, Mr Donatus was left praying for no goals to be scored during injury-time in either match, and his lucky stars were counted only moments later!
Mr Donatus was presented with his cheque in our local shop on July 21, with local media outlets – including BTV News – unable to believe his incredible combination of knowledge and luck!
“Winning this incredible amount feels surreal! As a tour guide, I am privileged to share the beauty of Tanzania with travelers, but little did I know that Premier Bet would provide me with an opportunity to witness such a life-changing moment,” Mr Donatus said. “This windfall will undoubtedly open up new possibilities for me and enable me to make a positive impact on my community.”
Of course, Mr Donatus is not the first big winner we have congratulated in person in Tanzania recently. Just two weeks ago we hosted a press conference celebrating Jacob Mkungilwa, who has scooped around 230 million TSH by playing our exclusive crash game Navigator since it launched earlier this year.

Alternatively, head to Premier Bet and get involved by betting on your favourite sport! As Mr Donatus has proven, sometimes it pays to think outside of the box, and there is no better place to do so given our range of markets available.
As Mr Donatus pointed out, the latter is especially important to remain aware of. “My advice to fellow punters is to bet with a sense of responsibility and mindfulness. While winning big is undoubtedly exhilarating, it’s essential to treat betting as a form of entertainment rather than a means of financial security.”
