Fortebet fired up the moods of its customers when it bombarded its centres in FortPortal, Kasese and Ishaka with massive gifts to its clients over the week end.
The gifts were given out to the two branches in FortPortal, Kasese, Ishaka and Kabwohe.
A record of over 500 customers that were found at any of the above branches received at least a gift from Fortebet which included; Fortebet branded pens, wristbands, caps, T-shirts and European teams’ jerseys.
“This has been a very special World Cup, with very many surprises. This is why we have also decided to bring you surprise gifts. We are not only doing this during this world cup, but we do this every weekend,” said John Nanyumba, Fortebet Media manager, while handing over gifts to Fortebet customers at Fortportal Main branch.
On top of the gifts named above, Fortebet also gave out new F2 Tecno Smart phones to lucky customers.
One customer at Kasese main centre with nickname Ronaldo said, “You have kicked out all other betting companies from Kasese. You guys are strong because of the way you do your things. I am happy for my gift.”
The phone winner at Fortportal main branch said, “I am a very lucky person because I have just lost my phone and now Fortebet has replaced it. I can’t even express the happiness I have inside me.”
Fortebet team also did what it always does-giving out balls in the bid to promote young talents. The team gave out brand new Fortebet branded balls to pupils in St. Charles Lwanga Primary school in Fortportal, Busiita primary school in Bunyangabu district and community kids that were found playing within Kasese town.
Deus Nyabuje, the deputy headteacher, St. Charles Lwanga said, “This has changed my perspective about Fortebet. I thought you are only here to make money. I am glad that you have given back to the community. This school is one of the best in football in this district, so this ball addition will make us stronger.”
