Castlebet winner Salim Nyoni celebrates winning K35,472 from K4 with the Castlebet team



CASTLEBET Winner Salim Nyoni says: “I’m very happy! I’m in seventh heaven right now!” after scooping a cool K35 PIN from just a bet amount of K4 with Zambia’s favourite online football betting platform.

Unmarried small businessman Nyoni, aged 23 from Kitwe, scored his massive win on Independence Day 2019 – the 55th anniversary of Zambia’s independence.

Last night the overjoyed sports bettor joked: “I’ve been inundated with so many friend requests on Facebook since the news got out that I’ve had to stop responding. I never knew how popular I really was until this big Castlebet win happened!”

The football-fanatic cashed out K35,472 after placing a multiple bet involving 16 predictions on Zambia’s fastest growing and favourite online mobile football betting platform, Castlebet Zambia.

Mega-sharp Salim won BIG after trying out a new and exclusive Castlebet football betting option called “shots on target”.


Last week Castlebet Marketing Queen Magret Kambikambi followed from Lusaka to Kitwe’s most exclusive 5-star hotel, the Garden Court, to congratulate Salim in person, present him his winning cheque and hand over his wad of cash as well as enjoying a few drinks!

Marketing supremo Ms Kambikambi explained: “We followed Salim in person to congratulate him and help him celebrate his win not because of the amount he won, approximately 35 thousand Kwacha…”


“No, we followed Salim because of the skill he showed in earning this money from such a small stake of just K4! I hope he maybe able to share some advice to educate other Castlebet players on the skills needed to win big like this”

The innovative and exciting new bet option “Shots on Target” – offered only by Castlebet Zambia and not stingy rival betting companies – asks the player to predict whether the number of shots on target (the goal) made by players during a match will be over or under a certain figure.

Last night Castlebet marketing Queen Magret Kambikambi added: “The really interesting this is that Salim achieved this huge payout by betting on a market that other sports betting companies are too scared to offer.”

“At Castlebet we are famous for not hiding games like some of these stingy foreign companies. But it’s not just the number of matches we cover which sets us apart – it is also the much wider range of bet options we make available on each game that we hope to earn the loyalty of our customers from.”


During an in depth interview, Salim revealed more about how we hit the jackpot and collected the jaw -dropping sum of money.

Salim revealed: “I have been playing with Castlebet for about a year now…during that time I’ve been winning and losing at times, but they say winners never quit!”

“I thank you Castlebet for the good bigger odds you are giving us..I am so happy…I don’t think with the stingy odds offered by some other companies, I could have possibly won the same amount.

“I first heard about Castlebet from a friend who introduced me to the site. My friend told me that this site was better than other sites because it offered bigger odds and a wider range of bet options compared to other sites.

Castlebet Marketing Queen Margret Kambikambi said; “We are thrilled to be able to celebrate giving this pile of money to Salim. He is an example to other sports bettors; If you are a soccer fan, never lose hope and like Salim, see if you can win from a small stake a big amount!

Salim continued: “I am planning to buy a plot with the same amount of money. I eventually informed my family and the family was, like, oh awesome!”

Overjoyed Castlebet winner Salim continued: “At first my family had discouraged me from betting..but by the time they saw the amount in my account, they were, like, betting is awesome!”

“With this amount I am actually planning to buy a house and start building a house.”

Salim’s Betting Secrets & Tips:

“Betting is not something which is simple, but you need to analyse the teams. I would say you have to persistent because, and maybe focus on the teams you know well! I’m telling you guys to bet with Castlebet as they have good odds and alot of options.”
