The COVID-19 pandemic largely affected all spheres of life since the outbreak late 2019.
By early 2020, most countries had announced nation-wide lockdowns that closed business on various fronts including sports.
With less sports played, the punters’ industry too, faced a serious set-back.
In Uganda, virtually all the sports betting units were closed down, many completed shut off and a fraction specialized with on-line betting for the minimal fixtures available across the sports disciplines.
Kagwirawo Sports Betting firm is one of the companies that built strength with the online version.
Customers who visited their numerous offices and units spread across the country were now urged to capitalize on the online via their mobile phones, laptops and desk top computers.
According to Dr Innocent Ahabwe, the managing director Kagwirawo Sports Betting, COVID-19 forced them to resort to the online version, which to him is very convenient given the accessibility and comfortability, some of the benefits of online betting.
“The COVID-19 pandemic affected us a lot. This is the reason, we have resorted to the online version. Our dear customers have to secure data and log in, to the website, www.kagwirawo.co.ug and place their bets. It is ease to use, convenient and one can use it from the confines of their homes, offices and while in transit” Ahabwe stated.
The manager Kagwirawo Sports Betting Chris Mabonga reaffirmed their firm’s commitment to instantly pay off their winners.
“We are a sincere company, you bet instantly and get your cash instantly with no delays” Mabonga remarked.
Customers on the various telephone networks can log in to bet using their phones.
For MTN customers, dial *165*6*4*1# then follow the prompts and Airtel Uganda customers are urged to dial *165*5*4*1# and follow the proceedings.
Uganda has over 40 sports betting companies, all registered under the Gaming and Lotteries Board, a body that licenses, controls and regulates sports betting under the Ministry of Finance.
