This included 94 winners of the monthly branch draws of OMR 1,000 each, ten winners of the Children’s Account draw (OMR 100 each), twenty winners of the Youth Account draw (OMR 100 each), five winners of OMR 500 of the Bank’s Salary Transfer draw and two winners of OMR 10,000 of the Elite draw from the Al Dhahira and Muscat branches.
Commenting on the draw, Rashad Al Shaikh, Acting Head of the Retail Banking Division at OAB, said, “We are delighted to note the continuously increasing number of savings, especially as we enter into the last quarter of the year. We will continue to offer several exciting prizes for all the remaining draws until the end of 2020.”
The Hasaad scheme sees 95 lucky winners, with a minimum of one winner per month per branch, receiving a prize of OMR 500 and OMR 1,000 at the quarterly draws. In addition, ten winners are selected from the Children’s Account holders (aged 18 and below) and receive OMR 100 each. Twenty winners are selected from the Youth Account holders (aged between 18 and 27), each receiving a prize of OMR 100. There are also two Elite winners of OMR 10,000 each per month.
