Does the colour/status of my Rewards card make a difference?

  • Not this time – you can choose which draws to enter, no matter whether you’re a Gold, Platinum or Black Rewards cardholder – it’s your FREEDOM OF CHOICE!
  • All you need is the minimum number of points per draw – have a look at the table above to see how many points you need to earn for each

How much time do I have to earn my points for the draws?

  • Points earning starts on the day of each draw and ends the day before the next draw – so you have 2 weeks between each draw to earn your points for the next one
Draw Dates Points Earning Period
15 February – Launch draw No points required
21 February 2019 14 – 20 February 2019
28 February 2019 21 – 27 February 2019

What if I want to choose FreePlay instead of draw entries?
  • You’ll have the option to choose FreePlay once you’ve earned 1,000 points or more during the promotional period
  • For every 1,000 points you earn, you’ll get R25 in FreePlay (up to a maximum of R250)

What if I only want to choose draw entries?

  • Then you can! As long as you’ve earned the number of points you need to qualify
  • There’s a maximum of 60 entries per draw

What if I want to choose both FreePlay and draw entries?

  • Here’s an example of how it works… if you’ve earned 1,250 points, you can get R25 in FreePlay and 1 draw entry. Remember, for every 1,000 points earned, you get R25 in FreePlay and you need a minimum of 250 points to enter a draw
  • So, the more points you earn, the more Freedom of Choice – you can configure your options as you choose!

What are the cut-off times to select my FreePlay or draw entries?

  • If you choose to enter the draw/s, you can make your selections and submit your entries at an eHost anytime from 08h00 in the morning until 5 minutes before each of the draws
  • If you choose FreePlay, you can get it at an eHost anytime until 21h00 on the day of the draw only

How and when will I know what I qualify for?

  • We’ll let you know via SMS if you’ve qualified for the draws, so make sure we have your correct mobile number and that you’ve given us permission to communicate with you. You can do this at the Customer Service Desk
  • Launch Draw 15 February: We’ll send you a SMS on the morning of the draw, letting you know how many entries you have for that evening’s draw
