Five individuals have shared K400 million in winnings after playing Premier Bet Malawi’s game, Aviator.
Lilongwe-based farmer Andrew Simeon Kanyenda, welder Pyola Harawa from Blantyre and Lilongwe-based phone repairer Donnex Patrick Chandiloza have won K100 million each while market vendor Rowell Donda from Mwanza and Thyolo-based designer Lydia Chimpango have won K50 million each.
Kanyenda, 30, won after investing K2 000 stake while 28-year-old Donda did it with K3 000. Chandiloza, 32, Harawa, 22, and Chimpango put K200, K100 and K50 stakes.
The development comes a few weeks after a Lilongwe-based woman won K100 million in the game.
During prize presentation ceremony at Ryalls Hotel in Blantyre yesterday, Premier Bet Malawi commercial manager Nawar Jarakji said this was the company’s biggest payout in the country.
He said: “We are proud to continue producing millionnaires through this new game.”
One of the winners, who hid his face for security reasons, said will use the money to expand his businesses. Aviator game played on www.premierbet.com, whose goal is to successfully stop your bet and cash out before a plane crashes.
