A special hire driver in Soroti district has won Uganda shillings 96 million from Fortebet company limited with just 1000 stake.
Moses Onaba, officially said bye-bye to poverty after winning 96,891,156 Uganda shillings.
The unusualness about the winning ticket is that it had a record 65 matches.
Moses in an interview with our reporter said he has been betting for the last four years but never won big like this time. He added that one doesn’t need to be a sports genius to win a bet.
“You just need to know some basic information about teams, just like me,” he says, adding that: “I wanted to be one of the record winners”.
Onaba also said that he has been betting with Fortebet for the last four years and this is the second time he is winning.
He, however, added that he will buy a plot of land in Soroti and construct “my dream house”.
Secondly, ” I am driving my boss’ car for the last time because I am going to buy mine.”
Onaba advised fellow bettors not to lose hope. “You will never know the day you will win. You only need to keep trying, you will lose many times but it is from these many loses that you might eventually get the winning ticket, like I did”.
“You do not have to bet with a lot of money, just the balances after spending on the other essential needs.”
His money was handed over to him on Monday at the head office in Kololo by Fortebet’s David Sendagire.
