May 26, 2019 marked the beginning of a new era in the life of one of Fortebet’s clients in Jinja.
This historical moment followed his incredible win that the winner says it will certainly deliver his long awaited dream of being one of the biggest poultry suppliers in Busoga region.
Eric Kedi, a resident of Bugembe on that day entered Fortebet Jinja main centre and placed on his betting slip over 40 selections.
With only Shs1000 available on him for the stake, he had to go for the safest odds/selections possible.
He looked through virtually all leagues across the globe, going for 1, 1X, 2, 12 and overs 0.5, 1.5 which resulted into a win of 37,494,452.
After winning, Kedi on Monday afternoon arrived at Fortebet head offices in Kololo to pick his money with his ticket number 2914643746907727 in company of his colleagues as witnesses.
Kedi was handed over his money by Fortebet’s accountant, Davis Ssendagire.
While handing over the money, Ssendagire said, “Even when the common leagues come to an end, Fortebet offers remain very rich with thousands of games to bet on because the world of games and sports never comes to an end.”
Kedi said, “I have always had a dream of setting up a modern poultry project, but the problem has been capital.
Now that I have the money, I am going to be the largest poultry-supplier in Jinja and the entire Busoga region.”
Kedi had previously won Shs63,000, 77,000, 77,000, 98,000, 98,000, 235,000 and 700,000.
In his message to fellow punters, Kedi said that, “Everyone has his or her chance in betting. The moment you give up, you will have given up your chance.
You need to position yourself well so that your chance meets you prepared. Secondly, avoid getting so addicted to betting.”
