ForteBet bookmaker review: rules, support, sign up, free bets, site
Established in 2014, ForteBet has a special place in the Ugandan market. Sports betting, highest odds, uncomplicated registration process and wonderful customer service are waiting for you at ForteBet. The offerings of this bookmaker also include a variety of bet types, casino games, and live betting options. The customer’s transactions and provided information are protected as the technology center of the company is based in Europe.
ForteBet is incorporated in the Republic of Uganda and is regulated by the National Lotteries Board of Uganda.
There are no restricted countries for this website. It is accessible from anywhere on Earth, assuming you’ve got a decent internet connection of course.
On the one hand, there isn’t a mobile app designed for ForteBet, but on the other hand, the website can be accessed from mobile phones. While there are some interface differences between desktop and mobile options, the service offerings are almost the same.
ForteBet offers the players both sport and casino betting markets. They don’t provide a wide variety of games, but at least you can find the most popular ones. You have come to the exact place if you’re looking for the following types of sports:
- Beach Volley
- American Football
Players have a few betting opportunities, such as bets with two possible outcomes, three possible outcomes, or bets on a victory of individuals or teams.
The casino betting market isn’t huge either. It mainly includes slot games, such as Mystery Apollo 2, Magic Lady, Gangster World, and Slot Birds.
As we have already noted the offerings of Fortebet aren’t great and the in-play market isn’t an exception. It includes almost all the sporting events as the pre-match market, such as Soccer, Tennis, Basketball, etc. This information is regularly updated.
Sadly, live streaming isn’t available at ForteBet. There aren’t even match trackers.

The team is friendly and supportive. They answer all your questions completely and to the point without asking for any personal details.
The registration process hasn’t been easier as it is with ForteBet. It consists of several uncomplicated steps. You should provide the company with your name, surname, username, mobile number, email and date of birth. It’s all you need to start gambling with this bookmaker. If the registration process is completed, the client will receive an SMS message with their login details. In some circumstances, players are obligated to confirm the proof of identity.
Have you already decided to place a bet on your favourite events at ForteBet? If yes, it’s required to make a deposit on your account. This bookmaker co-operates with 2 main companies- M-Cell and Airtel. Thus, ForteBet ensures you deposit money directly from your mobile phone. You can use both your registered and non-registered phone numbers. In the case of M-cell, while the minimum deposit amount is 1000 UGX (Ugandan Shilling). The maximum deposit amount is 4000000 UGX. There are applied standard MTN fees. As for Airtel, the minimum deposit amount is the same as with M-Cell- 1000 UGX. The maximum deposit amount is 5000000 UGX. In accordance with this information, the main accepted currency is Ugandan Shilling. As there can be players from Zambia and Rwanda, ForteBet, of course, accepts their local currencies as well.

According to the reviews of the users, the rating of ForteBet is above average as the positive reviews are dominant. Customers’ comments are mostly pleasant regarding the structure of the website, deposits, payouts and high odds. The examples of these reviews are “Good betting site with big odds and a large amount of money paid instantly.”, “Fortebet is the best betting company in Uganda. They have the best odds, best betting website, and the best customer care in Uganda”.
To be honest, it’s really hard to find any negative reviews. The existing ones are mainly about the withdrawal methods used by ForteBet. You can see reviews such as “Mobile money withdrawal is needed as we use it to deposit” or “I think the company needs to develop more methods of withdrawal procedures because is it’s sometimes stressing to go to the branch to receive a payout”.
On the whole, all these reviews prove that ForteBet justifies the expectations of the users for the most part.
What do we suggest?
We have some recommendations to help ForteBet enhance the quality of provided services.
The first suggestion relates to a mobile app that isn’t designed for the bookmaker. We advise the company to work on creating it to provide more convenient access to the services. The second aspect worth developing is the live streaming service. Undoubtedly, it makes the customer’s entertainment more thrilling and exciting.
Another problem is related to the provided information on the website. As an example, bonus and promotion details aren’t well-ordered. Surely, the customer support is at a high level but it would be more professional with a live chat. So, we suggest ForteBet take it into consideration as well.
