Nigerian soccer legend, Austin Jay-Jay Okocha, has been officially crowned “king of the game” at the launch of BetKing, a premium sports betting platform, in Lagos.
Okocha regarded as the greatest player of his generation and one of Africa’s best ever, the former Super Eagles captain and European league veteran was the star of the show as the much anticipated BetKing platform made its entry into the Nigerian sports betting market.
The football legend said; “I’ve trained my whole life to be a winner and if I know two things it’s that to be the best takes passion and persistence.
“Similarly, BetKing’s philosophy really speaks to me in that it believes that everyone, whatever their position, has a chance to become King of their own destiny.”
Jay-Jay has come a long way since he began playing football on the streets of Enugu with a makeshift ball.
In the same vein, BetKing CEO, Byron Petzer, said BetKing has used it team’s combined experience of over 80 years in the Industry to develop and customize a state-of-the-art platform, offering world class Odds and Bonuses, almost instant payouts, and attractive agent commissions.
He said, “We are committed to changing the face of the sports betting industry in Nigeria and will be continuously customizing and developing new products with attractive innovative features, whilst maintaining our philosophy of putting our agents and online customers first.”
In celebrating their customers as Kings, BetKing’s plans also include special promotions and “royal spotlights” on winners and top performing agents.
