Fortebet, one of the biggest betting and gambling companies in Uganda — with branches throughout the country, and the best betting odds –has again rewarded its clients in Kawempe in a bid to appreciate them.
The function was held at Fortebet Kawempe Towers centre.
It was conducted a few minutes into last Saturday’s Premier League match kick-off, where Chelsea was slated to play an away game with Brighton.
Many customers were rewarded with gifts like original team jerseys for top English Premier League teams such as Arsenal, Manchester United, and Bacelona, caps, T-shirts, pens, wristbands — all branded with Fortebet.
“We have brought you many gifts for all of you because in Fortebet, everyone is a winner. We have not only come to thank you for betting with Fortebet but to also ‘shower’ you with lots of gifts,” said John Nanyumba, the company’s Media Manager, while addressing the customers shortly before the gifts were given out.
The rules for winning the gifts were very simple — one needed to have placed a bet of as low as Shs2000 and above to qualify.
Three customers won themselves Manchester United, Arsenal and Barcelona jerseys after placing bets of Shs50,000, Shs120,000 and Shs60,000 respectively.
They were also given wristbands and pens.
Other customers like Richard Ogwang, Denis Tumwesige, Osman Muwanika, Moses Mawanda, Luke Katamba among others, who placed bets from Shs2000 won the rest of the gifts (caps, pens, T-shirts and wristbands).
“This is not the last time we are giving out gifts. In addition to placing bets and winning money, we also want to dress you up with Fortebet. For the places we have not reached, please just be on standby, we shall get to your branch soon,” Nanyumba noted.
This weekend, Fortebet will still give out gifts to customers at the same centre (Kawempe Towers, opposite Kawempe market).
