Man loses N4m winnings after sports betting firm refused to let him withdraw

A Nigerian Twitter user has narrated how his friend would have been swimming in millions, if not for the tight nipped policy of a sports betting platform.

They guy reportedly won N4 million and he wanted to withdraw it but the company refused to allow him access the money

According to the narrator, this happened last week, however, as it this week, the money had come down to only N20k.

It is believed that he used the money in his account to keep betting and everything disappeared after a week of failure by the betting site to release his win.

The post reads; ”My guy won 4m last week.. dem no allows am withdraw am

Fast forward to today, money don remain 20k 😂’

Reacting, @____shegn said; If I win and not allowed to withdraw I go log out, that their juju no fit catch me. Most times I tried withdrawing and it wasn’t going through I jus log out till next day 😂

@spoilt4you; don’t want me to withdraw my Thursday win of 70k plus. And yesterday I wan 53k plus. I have like 100k plus there yet I can’t draw. And I won’t use it to play any game. They are mad. They must give me my money.

In other news, a Michigan woman made headlines due to her act of honesty which ensured that a newlywed couple were able to recover their lost cash.

Diane Gordon who walks almost three miles to work every day for the past year found a plastic bag containing $15,0000 when she was on her way to work, FOX 2 Detroit reports.

She returned the bag of money said to be the couple’s wedding cash which just laid on the floor outside a gas station.

Gordon said she had been walking 2.7 miles to work at VC Fresh Marketplace daily after her car broke down in February, 2022.

According to the honest woman, when she was walking back home after a shift on January 21, she stopped by a gas station when she noticed a plastic bag with a large amount of cash in it.

“I looked down on the ground and found a plastic bag with a large sum of money in it. When you turned it over there was even more money.”

She reported her findings to the police, saying “This doesn’t belong to me.”

Lt. Matthew Ivory of the White Lake Police Department said an investigation was launched into where the money came from shortly after, and discovered it belonged to newlyweds.

He added; “It never really crossed her mind to do anything other than turn it over. Inside the bag was also wedding cards, these were gifts from a wedding that occurred that day. I think it was $14,780 worth of cash”.

The police officer explained that after the money was safely returned to its original owners, someone in the department set up a GoFundMe to make sure Gordon can get a new car.

The Lieutenant said; Dianne does not have a vehicle, and walks back and forth to VC’s daily, regardless of the Michigan elements, where she works in the deli. She self admittedly ‘needed the money’ and ‘it would be life-changing’ for her, but that she didn’t think twice about not turning it in,” reads the fundraiser, which has already surpassed its $25,000 goal with over $45,000 in donations.

There ultimately was found to be $14,780 along with wedding cards in the bag which were the gifts of a newly married couple that day. Dianne is a perfect example of integrity and selflessness even in her own time of need. We will be working with Szott Automotive to get Dianne a vehicle with the funds raised.
