 Betting Customers Who Have lost Huge Amounts Of Money In The 2018 World Cup, Cry, Mourn Their Loss.

Many people who placed betting on the outcome of the 2018  World Cup have continued to count their losses following the defeat suffered by their preferred teams by their opponents.

NAN reports that sports betting has now become a booming business in the country for people to make ends meet and sequel to the fact that most of those who indulge in betting have special interests in football in particular.

Some of the betting companies  which have attracted a lot of customers include,  Nairabet (the first online sports betting website in Nigeria), Supabets Promotion, Winnersbet, Betland, Surebet247, Merry Bet, NairaStake, GoldenBet, Betcolony,  Bet365naija, Bet9ja, 1960bet, 360bet, 9jaPredict, Winners Golden Bet, Lionsbet.

With what happened now, I have learnt my lessons that truly, anything can happen in the game of football,’’ .These were the words of one of the bet victims who had staked N50, 000 before the match thinking that Croatia would emerge the overall winner wept uncontrollably when he realized that his fortunes had gone into the drain pipes.

Unfortunately for him after the grand finale of the Russia 2018 where Croatia lost to France,

It took the efforts of other fans there to console him and reminded him that participating in the Olympics is not always meant one to win

After he had regained his composure, he told other fans that he staked such a huge amount on the team because of its sterling performances right from the group stage up to the semi-final.

Also, another customer, Jamiu Ojo, who staked N20,000 with his belief that Germany would beat South Korea to advance to the next stage of the world cup went wild when the outcome of the match did not favour him.

He told NAN that he had recorded more losses than he had won. “I will keep betting because I hope that one day I will hit the jackpot.’’

He said that like most people, he used to have the impression that betting was an avenue for people to make quick and easy cash.

To tell you the truth, it is not easy to make money from betting. Beating the bookmakers is not an easy task.

“They trick you with good odds, but in the end, only a handful people win.

“Betting most times requires lots of research and luck, “he said.

Another staker who simply identified himself as Punmba as his betting identity said, “This World Cup prediction has turned to be a shocker.’’ Punmba told NAN that he lost close to N200,000 to betting during the fiesta.
