More Nigerians become millionaires in Airtel’s Feel Free Bonanza

By on March 23, 2011

THE ongoing Feel Free Bonanza of leading telecommunication service provider, Airtel has produced more millionaires.

The latest participants to win millions in the promo include Gabriel Odite, a businessman who resides in Lagos, Felix Ojojo, a student in Delta State and Theophilus Babatunde, an undergraduate based in Lagos.   Others are Okolo Umunali, a travel consultant and Ndubuisi Ughagwu, a businessman in Badagry, Lagos.

When contacted on phone, Odite lauded Airtel for lifting his spirit with the windfall, thanking the company for giving him the opportunity to become a millionaire.

So far, Airtel Feel Free Bonanza promo has produced seven millionaires and several other winners of brand new LCD television and latest Blackberry smart phones. 100 millionaires are expected to emerge in the interactive SMS promo, which began less than three weeks ago.

The winners will be presented with their winnings at a prize presentation ceremony in Lagos during the week.

Airtel’s Chief Marketing Officer, George Andah, said there are still a lot of prizes to be won between now and May 31, 2011. He added that most of the winners from the draw will be presented with their winnings at a ceremony in Lagos next week, and therefore urged Nigerians to grab the opportunity offered by Airtel to boost their financial profile.

Airtel made history last month when it introduced for the first time in the country, a promo that participants can play for free and win top of the range LCD television sets.

Andah said the company has selected carefully the cash prize taking into consideration prizes that Airtel customers will like to have. Throughout the 100 days (starting from February 21 through May 2011) of the Bonanza, Airtel customers can win free LCD TV sets, N1 million and Blackberry handsets everyday.

So far, a total of 42 participants have emerged winners within two weeks.

To participate in the bonanza, customers are expected to send the keyword, ‘FEEL FREE’ to the designated short code, 333, to win the LCD television while those that will like to win the N1 million and latest Blackberry smart phones are required to send SMS to the short code, 444.

Participants receive a string of questions, which they are expected to answer to earn maximum points.  Wrong answer attracts only minimum points. The more questions that a customer answers correctly, the greater his chances of being selected a winner in the draw.

While advising Airtel customers to be wary of criminal minded individuals who will like to take advantage of the bonanza to defraud unsuspecting participants, Andah said the company does not notify winners of their winning by SMS and does not request financial or security information such as bank account numbers or ATM pins as a precondition to redeem prizes.

He urged Nigerians to be vigilant and to feel free to confirm any notification on winning from Airtel’s customer care on its toll free line, 111.

Winners of the Airtel Feel Free Bonanza are selected weekly using a fully secured automated draw system certified and supervised by a leading process and applications audit firm, TCQ&A.
