She wins prize for her family The New Paper Bonus Challenge winner gets iPad mini
She bought the copy of The New Paper with the winning Bonus Challenge card and matched the winning numbers, but Madam Teo Seok Hong will not be keeping her prize all to herself.
She is glad to share it with her family.
Yesterday, Madam Teo won an iPad mini in The New Paper Bonus Challenge.
Said the housewife, 52: "I was so excited when I saw that I had won that I just had to call my son who was at work. To be fair, the iPad is a prize for the whole family."
Madam Teo said she has been a long-time reader of TNP, and has been buying it since her son, who is now 21, was still in primary school.
"He reads TNP for the football coverage," said Madam Teo. "He insists I buy TNP every day. And when he's done, I take my time to read the news pages."
But yesterday, her routine of reading the news was interrupted by even better news - the fact that the winning numbers matched her Bonus Challenge card.
She thanks her son for her prize.
"Since the start of the TNP Bonus Challenge, I have been checking and checking, but no luck. I know it's not easy to win a prize. But if it wasn't for my son's TNP reading habit, we wouldn't have been lucky at all."
CASH PRIZE SNOWBALLS
With no cash winner last night, the daily cash prize snowballs to $4,000 today. There are also Samsung Galaxy Notes, Samsung Galaxy S4s and more iPad Minis still to be won.
