All participants were selected randomly through computer ballot draw system and from 150,000 individuals as part of our international promotions program conducted annually to encourage prospective overseas entries.

This is from a total prize pool of 8,000,000.00 Pounds. You have the options of being paid by cash, certified bank draft or Swift Telegraphic Transfer.
For lucky winners, it is our standard practices to allocate accredited claims agents for the processing of claim application and payment of prize winnings to the benefit of beneficiaries after all modalities have been completed satisfactorily.
Due to mix up in some numbers and names the results of the draw were withheld and released today.
