She's a winner, twice over
She won $2,500 in The New Paper's 7 Daily Wins contest in November 2013.
Lady Luck was smiling on former cleaner Carol Teo for the second time yesterday when she won $100 in the Match & Score contest.
Beaming from ear to ear, an overjoyed Ms Teo, who is in her 70s, said: "I buy TNP every day without fail and I enjoy reading the stories."
She added that she will most likely use up all her winnings by today.
Ms Teo, who is unemployed, said: "Firstly, I'll have to return $50 which I had borrowed from a friend. Then, I will use the remainder to pay my phone bills and settle some transport costs.
"But that's fine. I'm still a winner."
Images of football jerseys are printed in TNP from Monday to Thursday, with the jerseys featuring either a number or a country.
New printing technology allows every copy of TNP to include a different combination of jerseys.
These jerseys can then be collected to match the winning combinations published in TNP from Friday to Sunday.
During these three days, there will be a daily jackpot prize of $1,000 which snowballs if it goes unclaimed for the day.
As there were no jackpot prize winners yesterday, Friday's jackpot prize will be $2,000.
The jerseys are valid only for that week.
There will also be combinations for $100 and $200 cash prizes.
Up to $31,000 can be won from the contest until July 10.
Winners must collect their prizes at the SPH News Centre, at 1000, Toa Payoh North, between 8pm and 9pm on the same day.
I buy TNP every day without fail.
