After becoming the latest multimillionaire in town, a couple is smiling to the bank following a windfall of KSh 20 million that was pocketed after correctly predicting 13 games on Mozzart Bet.
Patimo Emali had lady luck smile at him when he used his wife's (Divina Kwamboka) Mozzart Bet account to place a bet on Monday, November 1, 2021, as he amassed a mind-boggling 377746 odds to bring maximum yield to the punter.
The punter used his wife's mobile phone

Emali explained why he used the wife's account to bet, but it was not plain sailing for him as he predicted San Carlos would win against Guanacasteca.
Still, his side was reduced to 10 men and conceded a penalty, but luckily the chance was spurned, and San Carlos went on to score the winner handing him the lumpsum.
"I used her account because it is the one that had money. I analyzed the games well because the previous day I missed out on KSh 16 million after getting only one wrong prediction," Emali said.
History form and odds
He explained that when betting, he usually looks at the history form and odds.
"For example, when a team is playing away and has odds an odd of 3 it will most likely win and if teams gave an odd of 3:20 to draw it will most likely end in a draw," said explained Emali.
Their love story has also been a fairytale as Emali owned a salon and had Kwamboka as one of his employees with their union blossoming for 12 years with two children in the process.
Kwamboka is not an ardent follower of football but helps his spouse support Arsenal and could not hide her delight after taking home the amount.
"I'm happy to win the huge amount. I really wasn't sure that we were going to win the amount but words cannot express how I feel. I allowed him use my account because we share everything. He has his account and I have mine so we tried his luck with both of them," she explained.
Kwamboka speaks out
The excited Kwamboka said that her husband is the one who usually uses the account more often.
"This is because I do not follow football. All I do, is just watch games for fun but I support Arsenal," said Kwamboka, who owns a cosmetic shop in Nakuru.
The couple took the maximum payout on Mozzart Bet from a single multi bet with their bet slip initially racking in KSh 16 million.
Still, they have rewarded a handsome bonus of KSh 4 million from their paltry stake of KSh 50.
Among the ambitious picks were two draws predicted in Odense versus Aarhus and Rayo Vallecano versus Celta in Spain.
The two games ended scoreless to give the punter a hefty paycheck.
