Popular lotto company in Nigeria, Surebet247 is recently enmeshed in a scandal where a winner is fighting the company over a betting he won which the company refused to pay.

Kunle Asulegan narrated how he placed a bet at the Blue Cottage, Oke-Ado, Ibadan on the 27th of September, 2016 and valid receipts of the receipts of the games he placed was issued to him, but to his utmost surprise when he got there to check the results the second day, the computer showed ‘bet won’ an when he went to the centre to redeem his money the Surebet agents told him they have contacted their headquarters.

Asulegan expressed his disappointment when he got to the headquarters and he was told there was a mistake on the system.

A depressed Asulegan stated that all his efforts to redeem his money or talk to someone in position of authority in the company was blocked and he had to ask his lawyer to write the company which since then has refused to reply to the letter.

The lotto player explained to Papermacheonline that this wasn’t the first time he was placing bets at Surebet, in his words ‘I usually win some and lost some, but now that I won big why are they finding it hard to give me my money?’.

Asulegan provided Papermacheonline the receipts of the games he played and allegedly won and also showed a copy of the letter his lawyer sent to Surebet’s head office in Lagos with a threat that he would toe all legal means to redeem his money.

The CEO of Surebet247, Mr Sheriff Olaniran while responding to a text message from papermacheonline about the story said ‘tell him to report to lottery board if he feels cheated…we all have a choice to make’.imag2897imag2893
