Safe Betting: How I Lost N880,000 In 8 Minutes by abujarealtor: 10:41am On Jul 29
Good day, everyone.

Yesterday was one of the most confusing days for me. For a moment, I almost ran mad.

Two weeks ago, I didn't even know what betting was like. Never done it, never experienced it. I hardly knew what the numbers meant.

Fast forward to yesterday, Tuesday, 28 July, I was risking a client's money on a game I thought was 'a sure bet.'

It was an eSports game I've been following for a while. I knew the players involved were very skilled and could score for fun. They did so in over 10 successive matches last night. So I thought it was worthwhile betting they'd score at least 2 goals.

I tried to do so in three attempts, but didn't have the mind to follow through, only for the matches to end up with at least 3 goals or more.

Informed by this, I thought it was safe to go on ahead and play this one time. I did. Unfortunately, both matches didn't end like I had predicted.

Over 800k was gone in a flash. I couldn't believe it. Seeing the signs, I attempted a cash out while the match was still live but couldn't, as the option wasn't available.

You may wonder why I had to risk such a huge sum.

It's simple; think I got greedy. embarassed

However, my excuse was that I needed money to offset some bills. Faced with so much responsibilities, I thought winning over a million naira would go a long way in helping me take care of stuff since business hasn't been coming in so much. The tile money I used was my first business since March, before the lockdown.

But, of course, my greed overshadowed any excuse I could offer.

To all the young men out there, please, regardless of how sure you are, do not stake more money than you're willing to lose. I've been there. The allure of making it big sooner can be overwhelming, but don't risk it.

If you must, stake little sums and make future bets from your winnings.

The average soccer (FIFA 19) esports players earn less than $20,000 a year. they can easily be convinced to throw a game for $10k or less. The fixer earns his money by betting across multiple sites.

I agree. Everything tastes bitter ever since.

Funny enough, I went back o. I won 70k, as I needed to raise money to pay the client back. Although this time, the maximum stake was 10k. Wish I was less greedy as at the time I did.

This is very true. I couldn't understand how hitherto top scorers who happened to be in form misfire all in one game.

I feel for you Op. Please limit your time and money in betting or completely stop it. It seems you're a millionaire to stake with such amount... Betting sucks and make one's life miserable. Regardless of the fact that you need money and faced with so much responsibilities, betting is not an investment, it's gambling!

You sound angry. Please learn not to allow your anger control you.

See attached a screenshot of the transfers to the betting account.

That someone else lied doesn't mean we're all liars. Watch how you address people pls.

You deserve to be caned.
The next thing is that you will collect money from another client to do the 1st one's work, start posting the 2nd client until you get a third, do the 2nd one's work and start posting the 3rd client, etc, etc.

I always pray to God never to meet someone like you. You guys are the epitome of everything wrong with this country. You used a client's money to bet. That client is probably asleep now thinking his work is ongoing, not knowing that a criminal like you is about to take away his joy for the rest of 2020.

Only God will judge you. Wicked fellow!
