“In addition the trip, there will be loads of consolation prizes such as phones, tablets, and free bet tokens," he told the press.

“To enter into the promotion, one simply needs to deposit and place a bet with BetLion, every Sh50 is equated to an entry. The promotion runs for 8th April to 31st May.

“BetLion has a strong commitment to being a rewarding brand, this promotion just exemplifies this promise.”
