Today I am very happy because this money will surely change my whole life," said Jannat who supports Arsenal in English Premier League, Barcelona in La Liga of Spain and Bayern Munic in German.
In his remarks, Premier Bet Sales Manager Sam Chibambo Junior said they are very excited to produce a winner who has set the first record since the introduction of Premier Bet in Malawi.

start believing what the company has been preaching that it is here to change the lives of people through betting.
