KAMPALA: A new Uganda’s betting king emerged over the weekend after winning a record never-won 632 million shillings.
Certainly, the next question is-how possible was this, given the fact that Fortebet’s maximum win is 500M.
Well, the answer is very clear; this king placed two tickets and both of them won.
The first ticket won 498,173,506/= and the second won 134,055,000/=.
This wonder winner was very sure of the win because he placed both bets on the same matches.
Another key fact about his two tickets is that; you do not have to go for high odd to win big.
He selected ONLY home wins with relatively low odds, the highest being just 1.46.
This win now pushes down Uganda’s top five wins; 500,000,000/=, 424,889,280/=, 408,980,448/=, 308,491,744/= and 296,206,624/= that had stood in positions 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively for long.
Most interestingly, all these top six winners won with Fortebet.
the winner received his money on Moday at Fortebet head office in Kololo.
In an exclusive interview with the winner (names withheld as requested by winner for his security reasons), he said that this is not the first time he is winning.
“I have been betting for the last four years and in the four years, I have won big monies twice; 296m, 122m and now this third time,” the winner told us during the interview.
Asked about his trick of winning, he noted that, “I am consisitent with betting. Secondly, I do alot of reserch on games before selecting them and thirdly I always try to bet big.”
The winner said that he is going to invest his money into buying land, construction and setting up a mega hardware business.
“I thank Fortebet for giving me an opportunity to bet with it. One of the reasons I like Fortebet is the fact that when you win, the money is paid immediately, unlike many other betting companies,” he added. Congratulation and best of luck!
