A young Kenyan lady is the latest millionaire in town after winning the Sportpesa Jackpot of Sh27, 246,319 .

Violet Wandaho Gathu was on Monday unveiled as the Sh27 million jackpot winner.

Violet, a 31-year old retired banker from Nakuru, correctly predicted the outcome of 13 games of last week's SportPesa Jackpot.

"Voila! Violet, 31-year old retired banker from Nakuru, is the winner of last week’s SportPesaJackpot who walked away with Kshs. 27,246,319," SportPesa tweeted.

SportPesa runs the mid-week Jackpot games every week which will start over again at Sh10 million and the amount keeps increasing weekly until someone wins by correctly predicting the outcome of 13 games.

Rare win

Violet's win comes barely a month after Gordon Ogada Paul correctly predicted the outcome of 17 football matches to win the SportPesa Mega Jackpot which stood at Sh230,882,741.
