|Eric Robinson and Sylvester Wounuah|
Eric Robinson originally placed the ticket betting against Liverpool, Derby County, Zenit St. Petersburg, Sparta Moscow and Austria Vienna for 30 Liberian dollars which accumulated up to LD$ 1,116, 180. Robinson then encouraged his friend Sylvester Wounuah, to take the same ticket which he did without hesitation, making them millionaires.
The two lucky winners, who are all employees of the Liberia Agriculture Company, could not hide their joy when speaking to the media as they were all beaming with smiles.
They both thanked the government of Liberia for creating the environment where a company such as Winners Inc. has been carrying out what they called ‘life-changing’ opportunities for Liberians.
The two lucky winners were very thankful to God for the millstone and pray for direction on how to spend their money wisely.
“It is our hope that in the next few years you can be employers and properties owners when you spend this money wisely. This is our focus. Even though we are in business, our main hope is that you get empowered through sports betting” said Mr. Randall Kaybee Winners Inc Marketing Manager, when presenting the cash at the customer center on Broad Street.
