Oswald Odds: Over 20,000 Ghanaians join a Telegram group for betting tips
Wednesday, December 11, was a very good day for punters according to a conversation on Twitter.
After the games ended, people started talking about how it was a good business day in the betting world as they shared their winning stories.
One guy who has the username @oswaldtheson stood out among all the people posting their betting slips on their timelines. Oswald, whose bio reads not an Osofo, banker, digital solutions architect, budding lawyer, rapper and founder.
Oswald posted 4 different betting combinations and all the slips had impressive wins.
Moments after his slips went viral, the entire Ghana Twitter community started asking for more of Oswald’s betting tips.
He then created a Telegram page to give his followers the tips they so much desire. Within the first few hours, Oswald had over 4,000 people in the Telegram group.
The number jumped to over 18,000 on Thursday morning as it keeps growing with more people joining by the minute.
Betting has been a controversial discussion in Ghana as people think gambling will not set the youth on a good path. A section of the youth also believes this is the perfect antidote to a good lifestyle in a country where the unemployment rate is high.
Here are a few conversations on the timeline.
