Sports Betting, for some, is more or less, “a no go area”. In fact, people tend to attach religious sentiments to it which makes it look unbiblical or devilish.
However, the fact is, just like any business that involves taking and managing risk, Sports Betting or punting also shares the same characteristics.
A popular Twitter punter, “MrBanktips” asked his followers who are predominantly bettors to share the most important thing they did with their winnings from gambling.
These are some of their responses;

It was my first time ever, 200 level in school. Had been studying the @NairaBET site for some time, then I tried it with 400 Naira on 10 odds and it was a boom. Took some luck though, as all I had left was 1k, but the risk paid off. Literally spent it all on foodstuff 😁

I bought my ND form in 2016 from the 5k I won from Bet9ja during the Euros. Now in 2020, I bought HND form from several fixed game winnings. Hows that?
