Standard Chartered Banjul Gambia Limited on Monday held their first monthly raffle draw on the promotion "Together To Win" campaign at the bank's headquarters in
Speaking on the occasion, the acting Head of Consumer Banking, Ousman Njie, said the monthly draw will last for five months and in every draw customers will win a free Q-Cell Muslim Phone, Q-Cell Dual SIM Phone, Q-Cell USB data card, a Dell Laptop, with a USB data card or a 21 inch Plasma TV with a home surround sound system.
Mr. Njie recalled that, at the start of the campaign, they have promised their customers that they would be rewarded by a way of coupons for every D10, 000 they deposit into their accounts, and that once the funds stay in their account for at least a month, they are eligible to enter the monthly draw.
He pointed out that the bank had also decided to reward customers who had existing balances exceeding D10, 000, noting that they would also get coupons for every D10, 000 and become eligible to enter the monthly draw once the funds stay in the account for at least a month.
"If you introduce a friend or family, and they make a deposit of D10,000 or more you become entitled to the same number of coupons as them so they will win and you will also win," he further announced.
Njie said customers would also be further rewarded if they deposit at least D200,000 into their accounts and let it stay in the account for three months. Those customers would be eligible for a mega draw at the end of the campaign, and the winner will get a One Million Dalasi grand prize.
At the end of the 1st monthly draw there were five lucky winners.
The first prize Q-Cell Muslim phone was won by Baba Gasama, second prize winner was Sydney Winston Rilley, he won a QCell Dual SIM phone, the third prize a QCell USB data card was won by Banjul Travel Agency.
