Cell C announces Spin & Win October winners

Monday, 7 November 2016

Cell C, South Africa’s most innovative network, has used new gamification technology to put a different spin on user engagement with its Spin and Win promotion.

By participating customers stand the chance to win a share of R600 million in prizes including; Cell C airtime and devices, holiday vouchers, dinner experiences, cash prizes and a Polo Vivo. All customers need to do is make sure they are on the Cell C MegaBonus price plan and recharge with a minimum of R5. Each recharge gives the customer one spin and they are guaranteed to win on every spin!

Spin and Win was launched in October and the first big prizes have been announced.

Christmas came early for two lucky Cell C customers this month as they won handsomely in the Spin & Win promotion.

Anita Pake, a domestic worker from Middelburg in the Eastern Cape, who lives and works in Cape Town, recharged her phone with just R5, spun and won a Polo Vivo in Cell C Spin and Win’s October draw.

“I am speechless. Truly I have no words,” she said.  “I’ve never won anything, so to win something so big is amazing,” Anita, speaking from her employer’s home in Athlone Cape Town, said.

Anita’s husband and four children live in Middelburg. “I am on my own in Cape Town – I am a live-in domestic worker. My husband and I do not have driver’s licences so I am still deciding whether to keep or sell the car. “The money will be a huge gift to us, especially with Christmas so close.”

For Dennis Robert, 47, from Pinetown in KwaZulu Natal, news of his R50 000 was bitter sweet.

His wife Charmaine, 43, is critically ill with meningitis in state run Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital in Phoenix, Durban.

“When I heard I had won R50 000 I could not believe it. To come at a time when our family is in such crisis is completely unbelievable.”

Robert said he and his two children aged 9 and 12 were praying for the speedy recovery of his wife.

“It’s all we can think about,” he said.

Robert added that he had just opened his own business diagnosing car faults for a large motor manufacturing company.

“The money will come in very handy and get us through a very difficult patch,” he said.

A whopping R5.1-million in cash and lifestyle prizes and hundreds of Millions in Cell C airtime is still up for grabs with Cell C’s Spin & Win. And one lucky person stands a chance of winning a grand cash prize and VW Polo Vivo every month until the end of January. So there are still 3 chances for customers to win big.
