DiGi customers raked in over RM800,000 in cash & prizes
DiGi Prepaid Menang Besar Reload Contest wraps up
SHAH ALAM, 29 June 2013 - Over RM800,000 were given away to customers of DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd ("DiGi") during the seven-week contest that ran from 6 May - 23 June 2013. At the grand finale held at DiGi head office today, a showdown among the top seven (7) weekly winners was organised to ascertain the grand prize winner of the DiGi Prepaid Menang Besar Reload contest, whereby the RM100,000 cash prize was up for grabs.
The seven contestants hailed from all over Malaysia with the eldest being 65 years old from Sentul, Kuala Lumpur and the youngest, 21 years old from Georgetown, Penang. At the showdown finale, each contestant was placed in individual foam pits to ensure the young and old were on equal footing at the final challenge. All they had to do was collect as many yellow balls as possible in 2 minutes.
When the final whistle blew, Mohd Shafiq Bin Mubashhir, 26 from Shah Alam emerged as the winner of the grand prize of RM100,000. He will be using his prize earnings by taking his family for a holiday in Europe and saving the balance to grow his business.
Said Ting Shiew Han, Head of Products - Consumer & Business for DiGi: "Customers' response to the campaign has been encouraging due to the simple contest mechanics. The contest is just one of many ways DiGi undertakes to engage with customers. We had ensured that the contest mechanics were simple and easy to qualify, as we wanted to reward as many customers as possible for choosing DiGi.
"Our Menang Besar cruisers travelled nationwide and stopped to reward qualified customers in both East and West Malaysia with exclusive premiums. This was in addition to the smartphones and cash prizes for the daily and weekly winners respectively."
The DiGi Prepaid Menang Besar Reload contest was open to all DiGi Prepaid customers from 6 May - 23 June 2013, offering daily and weekly winners hundreds of smartphones and cash. The five (5) Daily and three (3) Weekly Winners were selected based on every 100,000th reload and upon correctly answering questions about DiGi. Customers only need to reload at least RM10.00 to be selected for the daily prizes of Samsung Galaxy Note II, and at least RM30.00 to contend for the weekly cash prizes of up to RM15,000.
