Congrats u've been selected for SPH GSS Challenge. 30+ prizes. Subaru car, fridge, tour, cash, etc. Be at Vivo City Amphitheatre, Sat 5/7 12.00pm with IC & RECEIPT dated xxxxxx for $x. Challenge about 2 hrs. Casual wear. Enquiries...I've been entering SPH's Great Singapore Sale lucky draw, by SMSing whenever I spent at least $50 at any of the participating shopping malls. Looks like I got into the second stage of the lucky draw. When I searched online for people's experiences and what to expect, I couldn't find anything, so, in the spirit of this blog, I'm writing what I did here, that it might help others. Apparently there's going to be another draw in 4 weeks, which might be the same, so someone could find it useful.
First, this was the Vivo City amphitheatre the day before:
What you do is first you queue up and receive a registration form after they verify your receipt and IC.
This is the registration form:
The registration form is all you need to play the game. It's odd that such an important form doesn't have a serial number. I mean, if someone could obtain copies of the form, they could play several times.
So, after receiving the form and filling it out, you queue again to play the game. You don't have to queue immediately. There were a lot of people queuing, so 1/3 of the amphitheatre was reserved for people to sit while queuing:
What is the game? You kick a football down a pinball-like ramp with boxes at the bottom. Whichever box it ends up in, you get into the draw for that prize. The car is, of course, the hardest box to get into. (Hmm, ok, I can't embed videos from Picasa Web Albums.)
After kicking, you wait until everyone's had a go (about 1.5 hours), then they start drawing the prizes. So you could either go early, kick, then leave and come back later, or I would go about 1 hour after the start time.
The prize drawing:
Hope this helped! Good luck!
