Uganda’s versatile artiste Mr. Eazy is the new continental ambassador for top betting Powerhouse, BetPawa. Betpawa announced the lucrative deal with the ‘Tumbiza Sound’ hit maker Thursday at Kabira Country Club during an event where eight (8) selected winners (combed across the country) took part in a football challenge penalty kick shootout amidst pomp and cheer from friends and family. Baryayanga Francis, a 38-year-old primary school teacher from Bushenyi district walked away with a brand new Toyota Rav 4 from BetPawa. Other winners won UGX750,000 (for 4th-8th place winners), UGX1.5m for third place, UGX3m for 2nd place.
Livingstone Mugambe, the Betpawa Marketing Coordinator for Uganda revealed that Thursday’s 8 winners placed their bets with Betpawa in August during the English Premier League matches.
“This then saw them enter our prize draw by Sunday 29th August and were drawn to take part on Monday 30th August,” Mugambe said.
The selected winners include: Byanyima Joseph (from Mitooma), Amoli Mario (Adjumani), Lukiiko Mike (Arua), Odora George (Kwania), Lematia Geoffrey (Arua), Mwebaza Kenneth (Luweero), Okot Jalon (Tororo) and Baryayanga Francis.
The finalists participated in the penalty shoot-out where they used a special soccer board to act as the goalpost. This board had five (5) holes in different sizes and each hole contained a number of points.
They were then categorized according to points earned to determine those who will proceed to the next competition stage leading to the finale,” Mugambe said.
Sports gambling can be consistently profitable if bettors have superior knowledge regarding athletes and teams, which many sports fans believe they have.
The proliferation of media coverage of sports and the variety of information services available give gamblers a sense of control and confidence that encourages them to wager.
“Our website is easy to use, has low data consumption and you can bet anytime anywhere, needing just an internet connected device,” Mugambe added.
