Residents of Lukaya, Buwama, Kyotera, Kalissizo, Mutukula, Kasensero and Sanje were treated to an exciting weekend with lots of gifts from the sport betting giant-Fortebet Company.
All the punters that were found at the branches at least received one of the gifts that Fortebet carried along. Gifts included F2 Techno phones, wrist bands, pens, caps, T-shirts and team jerseys for the favorite European clubs. The gifts were given out inside the branches by Fortebet’s media manager, Mr.John Nanyumba.
“We visited you during world cup and we gave you gifts. We are back again to do the same and we shall keep coming back. We do this because we feel you are very special, having made Fortebet your number one betting company in Uganda,” Nanyumba said as he handed over the gifts to lucky customers at the Kyotera branch.
A total of 6 customers received phones, 35 received brand new club jerseys, 40 got T-shirts, 30-caps while over 600 walked away with at least a Fortebet pen or wristband.
“I have never held a smart phone. I have always wanted to buy one but didn’t always get the money. Fortebet has made my dreams come true,” Julius K, the phone winner at Kasensero branch said after receiving his phone.
Fortebet did not only give out the above gifts but also continued with its policy of supporting the development of young talents.
In this line, pupils of Lake Side Junior Academy-Kasensero, Hope Primary School-Kyotera and Kakuuto Advanced Primary school received new footballs.
In addition, bodaboda riders in Kasensero and Lukaya got reflector jackets to help them minimise night accidents.
