Winner Selection

  • Prize winners will be selected at random from the Western Union database using SPSS Version 16 software programme. The process entails logging into the system using company issued credentials, entering the “Qualifying Transaction Period’ (please refer to the table above), then entering the number of winners for the period e.g., 10 for September 19-September 30, 2022, 25 for the third and second to last draw respectively. After that is entered, ten entrants’ names and their contact details will appear on-screen, and those individuals will be the winners. An additional 20 entrants’ names will be selected (as the back-up winners; two back-ups for each winner) and an additional 50 and 30 entrants’ in the case of the 25 and 15 winners. Representatives of the Betting Gaming and Lotteries Commission (BGLC) can oversee the selection process on all draw dates in person or via our online conference platform, Microsoft Teams. A link to this platform will be furnished by GKMS representatives, Ayanna Kirton Hynes (Marketing Manager, Remittances) or Bianca Ferguson Duncan (Marketing Officer, Remittances) on request and the screen share feature will be employed for the BGLC representative to oversee the process if online oversight is selected.
  • Prize winners will be selected at random using the drawing tools at GraceKennedy Financial Group, 42-56 Harbour Street, Kingston.
  • Sponsor will make three (3) attempts to contact each winner via telephone within one (1) working day after the draw.
  • If GKMS representatives are unable to successfully contact the winner, the Sponsor reserves the right to select and contact the backup winners in the order in which they were drawn.
  • Failure to claim their prize within ten (10) working days after notification will result in the prize being forfeited and a new selection made from the backup winners.
