Commenting on the results of the draw, Rashad Al Shaikh, Acting Head of the Retail Banking Division at OAB said, “We continue to see a rise in the amount of savings from our bank’s customers, especially since the last few months and we are proud to see how the Hasaad scheme has contributed to this culture. It is important that we highlight and promote the need for having savings, which is beneficial for every individual’s financial stability in the long run. We continue to roll out exciting prizes until the end of the year as part of this highly successful scheme, with each month’s draws bringing in even more incredible prizes.”
The Hasaad scheme sees 95 lucky winners, with a minimum of one winner per month per branch, receiving a prize of OMR 500 and OMR 1,000 at the quarterly draws. In addition, ten winners are selected from the Children’s Account holders (aged 18 and below) and receive OMR 100 each. Twenty winners are selected from the Youth Account holders (aged between 18 and 27), each receiving a prize of OMR 100. There also two Elite winners of OMR 10,000 each per month.
