Lucky player at betPawa Ghana touches down with the game’s biggest win to date after riding out phone glitch
Aviator, the world’s number-one crash game from award-winning developer Spribe, has landed another big winner as a player at popular betting brand betPawa Ghana won a massive $500,000; the biggest Aviator win in Africa.
This is how the action unfolded…
Fuseini from Kumasi, Ghana, opened betPawa on his smartphone and headed straight to the games lobby to take flight with Aviator. Having set his bets at GH¢20, he launched the plane and watched as it climbed higher and higher with the bet multiplier also getting bigger and bigger.
With Aviator, the aim of the game is to hold your nerve for as long as possible; the longer you hold out, the bigger the win multiplier gets. Of course, if the player waits too long, the plane flies away taking their accrued winnings and original stake with it.
In a twist of good fortune, his smartphone was not functional and he couldn’t cash out for a few moments. Those few extra seconds of being airborne took the multiplier sky high, taking his total win to a life-changing GH¢6m (more than $500,000).
Not only did he hit the highest cash multiplier of the week, but his win is the largest ever recorded in Ghana since Spribe introduced Aviator to the market back in 2018.
To mark the occasion, betPawa treated Fuseini to a once-in-a-lifetime experience, flying the avid football fan and his family and friends to a football match in a private jet. The betting brand, which is active in eleven African countries, then held a press event where Fuseini spoke emotionally about the win and was presented with a cheque for $500,000.
“Aviator is a thrilling game loved by more than ten million players a month across the world,” the Chief Commercial Officer for Spribe, Giorgi Tsutskiridze, said. “Not only does it provide engaging, fast-paced action on mobile and desktop but, as seen by Fuseini, it gives a superb opportunity to players to build their wealth and fortune just by playing the best crash game in the world.
“Aviator is multi-player and social and Fuseini can now enjoy his time at the top of the Aviator Battle Royale Leaderboard where other players can put their mettle to the test to see if they can land an even bigger multiplayer.
“It’s also great to see betPawa give Fuseini the royal treatment following his big win. This is a great branding opportunity for the operator and also helps to make even more players aware of the Aviator and why it’s the number-one crash game on the planet.”
“I cannot believe what is happening to me because I never imagined ever being on an aeroplane,” Fuseini said. “Today, I have been flown on a very luxurious plane fit for a millionaire.”
“We are so happy for Fuseini and his incredible win on Aviator,” the Chief Commercial Officer for betPawa, Ntoudi Mouyelo, said. “What better way to celebrate than putting Fuseini in a real plane and flying him to watch his favourite sport, football. With his winnings in hand, he can now travel in style wherever he goes.
“Aviator really is one of the most popular games in our lobby and we look forward to sharing more big win stories as they land.”
