Two Fortebet clients over the weekend became millionaires instantly after winning a combined Shs490m.
Willy Bizimungu (in featured photo), a builder residing in Kajjansi won Shs210 million after staking only Shs10, 000, while another client, a resident of Kisenyi in Kampala won Shs280 million with a stake of only Shs1,000. Both winners were paid their money on Tuesday evening at Fortebet head office in Kololo. Both clients placed their tickets online at www.fortebet.ug.
Bizimungu selected a ticket with 35 on matches. His slip had home and away wins, overs, double chances and both teams to score. His ticket’s odds were multiplied into grand odd of 21,061.06 and cashing him a whole Shs210,610,592.
The second winner selected 54 teams and he mostly went for overs of 0.5 (a match to have at least a goal) and 1.5 (a match to have at least two goals). He added on a few home and away wins. In total, this ticket generated a total odd of 282,738.69 paying him Shs282, 738,816.
After receiving his money, Bizimungu said that he had experienced something he had never before and uncertain whether it will ever happen again.
“I am going to first bank this money and plan of doing something that will make my life and everyone around me happy for the rest of our lives,” Bizimungu said, noting that he is going to use part of the money to build two houses-his and one for his mother as well as buying a simple car to help him do his work.
Bizimungu praised Fortebet website www.fortebet.ug, saying it is the fastest of all betting websites because it loads very fast.
“This is why I decided to zero on Fortebet. Other websites take too long to load. For Fortebet however, only a click takes you straight and fast to what you want,” Bizimungu added.
The Shs280m winner told us that, “I am happy but not as happy as I was going to be. If two of the matches had not been postponed, I was going to win 487million. But all the same, I am uncontrollably joyful because my life will never ever be the same again. Fortebet has lifted my standard,” he said just after receiving his money.
He noted that he has been playing betting with Fortebet for the last five years and he was hopeful that one day he would win such big money.
“Betting is not bad as some people take it to be. For me, instead of smoking or drinking, I use that money to bet. My advice is; use only the extra money to bet, you won’t regret,” he further noted.
