AFTER 17 weeks of winning and qualifying, and more than four million entries, the massive WB 1.23M Cash Bonanza reached its climax during a live draw at the NBC TV studios.
The 10 finalists each had the opportunity to select a numbered ball, which corresponded with 10 boxes, each containing cash prize.
Seven boxes contained N$1 230, and the other three the main prizes, being N$12 300, N$123 000 and the top prize of N$246 000.
Lucia Imalwa was only the second person to open her box, and jubilation echoed when she pulled the N$246 000 envelope out of her box. She was totally stunned.
“The Lord gave this to me and He will show me what to do with it,” she said afterwards.
Unbelievably the very next contestant, Fillemon Halukolo from Oshakati made the audience roar, when he pulled N$123,000 from his box.
He was smiling from ear to ear, until the end of the show.
The final main prize of N$12 300 was finally grabbed by Wilma van Reen from Katutura. She was delighted!
The WB 1.23M Cash Bonanza was administrated under the watchful eyes of Patience Jakob, from Stier Vente Associates.
The all-Namibian WB group hosted this competition as part of its 123rd birthday celebrations. At this stage, the plans for next year’s birthday promotion, is still under wraps.
