Frequently Asked Questions
At the end of the 9th draw, all non-winning SMS and online entries will be pooled together to be selected for the Grand Live Draw Event. We will conduct a computerised draw on 13 August 2018 at 11am at SPH News Centre Lobby (1000 Toa Payoh North) and invite the shortlisted participants to participate in the Grand Live Draw Event on 18 August 2018. A same person may be picked up to a maximum of 3 times, based on different receipts.
At the Grand Live Draw Event, participants will have to take part in a simple Challenge. The Challenge will determine the prize that they stand to win. At the stipulated Live Draw time, prize presenters will be invited on stage to pick winners for the different prizes from the pool of entries. Winners must be present to collect their prizes personally at the Grand Live Draw Event.
Shortlisted participants will be informed via SMS from Monday, 13 August to Wednesday, 15 August 2018. Each shortlisted participant will be informed on the specific time to attend the Grand Live Draw Event. This is to ensure better crowd control and to facilitate the signing-in.
