As the ongoing Russia World Cup enters into the round of sixteen, many university students are scrambling to stake their money in the hope of earning big before the games get tougher and harder to predict with many, however, losing their money.
This is now different to Asbel Bosire, a fourth-year student pursuing a degree in Agricultural Economics at Moi University.
Bosire admitted to being a serial loser until he recently learned from a friend that penalty awards in a match could fetch him a lot of money if he played.
The student says after making his decision, he decided to place a bet on a penalty market in a game between Iran and Portugal played on Monday.
He said he borrowed some money from his friend and together they placed on a missed penalty with Sh20,000 that had the odds of 12.5 to which he got a mouth-watering amount of Sh250,000.
Bosire narrated that when the penalty was awarded to Portugal on the 53rd minute, he was shocked but when Cristiano Ronaldo stepped up to take it as he knew it as a goal but as soon as he missed it, he broke into wild celebrations.
"I want to thank my friend for introducing me to this penalty market and most importantly to Ronaldo for gifting me Sh250,000. I will now place my bets on this market as I aimed to earn more," he said.
Bosire said he would use the money to settle his previous debts, reward his friend, pay rent and buys a TV set so that he could start following all World Cup matches at the comfort of his sitting room.
