Outlining the mechanics of the promo which will run from April 2nd to May 25th 2012, the corporate affairs adviser said it “will be crown cork based. There will be two categories of winning crown corks-‘instant winning crown corks’ and ‘alphabet code crown corks’. For the ‘instant winning crown corks’ whatever is seen under the crown cork is what the consumer gets instantly!

Maltina shall be giving out a total of 5 houses. Under the letter ‘M’ crown corks; there will be special differentiated alphanumeric codes. These codes qualify consumers for weekly raffle draws. The 5 houses will be given out in three weekly raffle draws as follows:1st Raffle- 2 houses, 2nd Raffle- 2 houses, 3rd Raffle- 1 house.”
He reiterated that holders of the raffle draw crown corks can enter the raffle draws by either sending their code, name, sex, age and address (address should include state) to 30380 or going to any of the 1,200 redemption centers to register their names and contact details. “Holders of the S-M-I-LE crown corks will be expected to keep them as the ultimate proof of ownership. The SMS will work with all major telecoms operators.”

Malt drink- Maltina.”
The Maltina brand is noted for exploring creative avenues to consistently engage and reward its consumers. One of these creative consumer engagement platforms is the popular and highly rated Maltina Dance All (MDA) TV reality show, a platform for sharing happiness, promoting family values and bonding.
Since it hit the Nigerian market in 1976, Maltina has consistently satisfied its consumers with high quality natural malt drink, fortified with essential vitamins and minerals. It is the first and only malt drink officially endorsed by the Nutrition Society Nigeria. This provides Nigerians the vitality and superior nourishment necessary for their daily activities – including those special fun moments shared with friends and loved ones.
So with five bottles of Maltina at 100 naira each a consumer stands a chance of winning a brand new furnished home on the high brow Lekki-Ajah axis of Lagos State. Is there a better way of sharing happiness than this?
