Winners began to emerge in the Glo Hamma Millions promo launched three weeks ago by the country’s data masters, Globacom. Cash prizes worth N125 million would be given to lucky winners in 100 days.
Olatunde Ahmed, a transporter from Oyo emerged winner of the N5 million jackpot, alongside 200 other lucky Glo subscribers who won N100,000 each. They were the first set of winners announced by Globacom in the promo that will produce 1005 winners.
According to a statement by the company, other winners include Joseph Ayodele a Geologist from Ogun; Babatunde Akewukereke a Medical Doctor with the Military Hospital Ikoyi, Lagos; Abue Simon a soldier in Lokoja; Chidi Ogaga an accountant from Enugu; Bernard Abayomi, a pensioner who lives in Kubwa, Abuja; Levi Chisom, a clergyman from Owerri; Gideon Ekpenyong, a student from Uyo, Akwa Ibom State; Hassan Sagir, a Legal Practitioner from Kaduna and 192 others from different parts of the country. They will all smile to the bank with N100,000 cheque each.
Globacom explained that the 210 subscribers who won N100,000 each emerged from the day the promo was launched to date. 10 winners were produced daily between Monday, May 16, when the promo kicked off, and Monday, June 6, 2016, while the N5m winner emerged after the first twenty days as the company had promised.
The promo draws were done through an automated process at 12 midnight everyday without any human involvement. A software developed by Velti, an international ICT firm, was deployed to ensure transparency and accuracy in the selection of the winning numbers.
The reward scheme was developed by Globacom to appreciate the customers who had remained the focal point of the company’s operations by making over 1000 of them richer and turning others into multi-millionaires.
In the 100-day promo, 10 winners of N100,000 would emerge every day, while a N5million jackpot winner would emerge once every 20 days. In all, a total of 1000 lucky winners of N100,000 and five winners of N5million will emerge in the promo.
The company said that it launched the promo to positively impact the lives of its customers in the face of current economic challenges.
It encouraged existing and new subscribers to avail themselves of the opportunity to become millionaires in the promo by sending ‘GLO’ to 555 and answering a football trivia question.
Globacom said that within minutes of texting, subscribers will receive a particular question, adding that a fresh question shows up each time the code is sent and it costs only N100 per text.
The promo is endorsed by the National Lottery Regulatory Commission and the Nigerian Communication Commission.
