An 18-year-old from Kampong Mata-Mata walked away with a brand new car yesterday, even though she does not have a driving licence yet.

University student Nurul Afiqah binti Md Norilham, who bought a new smartphone at Digital World in April, was elated to find out she had won a new Toyota Vios worth BND24,000 as part of the ‘Spend & Win’ campaign organised by Digital World in collaboration with NBT Brunei Sdn Bhd.

“I never joined lucky draws before so I didn’t expect to win, but I was overjoyed when I started the ignition to the car to become the winner of the ‘Spend & Win’ campaign!”
Nurul Afiqah added she was lucky to have won the Toyota Vios as she planned to apply for her driving licence soon. “Now that I’ve won the Toyota Vios, I no longer have to think about buying a new car. For that, I am very grateful.”

Winners of the campaign were to be announced late June. The event was postponed to September due to COVID-19.

Other winners took home prizes which included a smart TV, smartphones, home appliances and gadgets from Digital World.

Customers who spend a minimum of BND100 on mobile phones or electronic goods stand a chance to win prizes, which include the latest smartphones, trendy gadgets, accessories as well as branded home appliances.
