MUSCAT, 28 October 2013 – Bank Muscat, the flagship financial institution in the Sultanate, marked a celebration in Sohar as part of the RO 1 million al Mazyona year-end grand prize campaign across the Sultanate. The grand prize will be shared by 10 customers covering all the governorates, including one Priority Banking customer, who will receive RO 100,000 each. Customers maintaining a minimum balance of RO 1000 for the last quarter of the year are eligible for the grand prize draw.
A large turn-out of customers and senior bank officials attended the al Mazyona family event held in Crowne Plaza Hotel. The highlight was al Mazyona operetta, which evocatively conveyed the message of prudent savings habits through the folklore song and dance programme.
Ali Jama, Senior Regional Manager – North Batinah, said: “al Mazyona reaffirms the bank's vision and constant efforts to fulfill the aspirations and ambitions of the largest banking family in Oman. The flagship savings scheme has won the hearts of people and succeeded in realising the dreams of thousands of customers. The bank attaches great importance to inculcating prudent savings and spending habits and has tailored al Mazyona scheme with this objective in mind. The series of big prizes from Bank Muscat is the major attraction of al Mazyona which offers fair and transparent winning chances for all segments of customers."
al Mazyona 2013 scheme offers a total prize money of over RO 7 million. As on date, the scheme offers the biggest prize money in Oman and the region. Notably, the enhanced prize money is shared by more winners as customers from all governorates are guaranteed to win prizes ranging from RO 1000 a week, RO 50,000 every quarter to RO 100,000 at the end of the year. The 2013 al Mazyona scheme reaches out to all individual segments with exclusive prizes earmarked for ladies, youth, children and high savings balance customers in all regions.
al Mazyona has consistently been a huge success. The objective of al Mazyona is to create a lifetime change for winners and allow them to invest their prize money in things that will make a lasting difference and the well-being of their families.
An added attraction is that the winning chances get multiplied by the number of years customers are associated with al Mazyona savings scheme. For example, if a customer has been saving for 5 years, his chances of winning get multiplied by 5 times and similarly if he has been maintaining al Mazyona savings account for 20 years, his chances get multiplied 20 times and so on. This benefit is unique only to al Mazyona savings scheme and no other bank offers this, as on date. This provides high savers with the best chance to win the year-end RO 1 million prizes.
Over the years, al Mazyona has succeeded in inculcating a strong savings culture in Oman. The flexible scheme makes regular saving easier and is available across the largest network of 138 branches in Oman.
