A super-lucky player with Ghana betting brand betPawa has landed the biggest ever win in Africa on Aviator, the world’s most popular ‘crash’ game, a massive $500,000!
Fuseini, from Kumasi, Ghana, opened betPawa on his smartphone and headed straight to the game lobby to take flight with Aviator. Having set his bets at 20 Ghanaian Cedis ($1.67) , he launched the plane and watched as it climbed higher and higher, with the bet multiplier also getting bigger and bigger.
With Aviator, the aim of the game is to hold your nerve for as long as possible. The longer you hold out, the bigger the win multiplier gets. Of course, if the player waits too long, the plane flies away taking their winnings and their original stake!
In a bizarre but fortunate twist, Fuseini’s phone was not responding, and he was unable to cash out early. In those few seconds, the multiplier climbed sky high, taking his total win to a life-changing GH¢6m (more than $500,000).
To mark the occasion, betPawa flew football fan Fuseini and his family and friends in a private jet to watch a big football match. The brand, active in 11 African countries, then held a press event where Fuseini spoke emotionally about the win and was presented with his cheque for $500,000.
Giorgi Tsutskiridze, CCO at SPRIBE, says: “Aviator is a thrilling game loved by more than 10 million players a month across the world. Not only does it provide engaging, fast-paced action on mobile and desktop, but as seen by Fuseini, it gives a superb opportunity to players to build their fortune just by playing the best crash game in the world.
“It is also great to see betPawa give Fuseini the royal treatment following his big win. This is a great branding opportunity for the operator and also helps to make even more players aware of Aviator and why it is the No.1 crash game on the planet!”
Ntoudi Mouyelo, CCO at betPawa, adds: “We are so happy for Fuseini and his incredible win on Aviator. What better way to celebrate than putting Fuseini in a real plane and flying him to watch his favourite sport, football. With his winnings in hand, he can now travel in style wherever he goes.
“Aviator is one of the most popular games in our lobby, and we look forward to sharing more big win stories as they land.”
