A new online sportsbetting website operated by Global Bets East Africa was launched through the Ugandan press in Kampala this week.
Little information on ownership, software or licensing however Globalbets-ea.com is headed by Mike Kinyera a Ugandan businessman who holds the position of chief executive officer. The site has been launched in association with TV broadcaster NTV Uganda, who is seemingly owned by The Nation Media Group an independent media house in East and Central Africa.
Globalbets-ea.com offers punters " Sure Bet " where football supporters of the winning team share the money betted by the supporters of the losing team. The website promises losing punters a payment as "a token of appreciation".
Marketed to "frequent travellers, busy individuals and corporates that don't want to be seen in betting halls and casinos", betting is done via the internet through a mobile platform.
"We want to give sports betting experience with a difference to everyone as we aim to redefine the word convenience," said Mike Kinyera, Global Bets East Africa's Chief Executive Officer.
"Our one of the kind offer is the Sure Deal. With Sure Deal, a customer is guaranteed of walking away with a payment, you cannot lose!" Kinyera said.
