Punters (clients) in Ntinda over the weekend lauded Fortebet for ‘giving back’ to them, something they said had never happened in the betting industry in Uganda.
Like it has done before, even last weekend Fortebet reached out to Ntinda punters and gave them a number of gifts that included branded European team jerseys, Fortebet T-shirts, caps and wristbands.
The highly emotional gifts’ handover was done inside the branch on Saturday by Fortebet media manager, John Nanyumba, shortly before most of the weekend games started.
A record 60 punters walked home with any of the above gifts, with Abas.K, one of the gifts’ winners saying: “I knew you were going to come here because I read it from your Facebook page. However, I didn’t expect to win a T-shirt because I thought there are so many procedures of getting it or a competition. I am extremely happy because this gift has compensated the 10 million that I lost yesterday just because of one team that was beaten at home. But next time I know I will win, like I have done before.”
Another punter (Justus M) who took a jersey said:“I have been using Fortebet at my betting company. But now that it has even given me a gift, I will never ever stop betting with you (Fortebet)”
“Today, we have just done what we always do-appreciating our good customers. Once we promise that we shall visit a given branch, we do it,” said Nanyumba just after the handover. He added that Fortebet will, this weekend, give out gifts to it Mbale town customers.
