MTN Uganda has rewarded the ultimate Egg Hunter with Shs. 5,000,000 from the Online Egg hunt campaign which ended on 9th July 2014, after running for 6 weeks. The 1st and 2nd runners up have also received Shs. 1,500,000 and Shs. 1,000,000 respectively. 

The MTN Egg Hunt campaign received over 30,000 registered participants and over 1,200 lucky winners of daily and weekly prizes such as internet bundles, phones and airtime.

It was open to all MTN customers and required participants to answer correctly to all questions presented through daily clues placed in a variety of media including TV, Print, Radio and Social Media. To be eligible for the grand prize, one had to have answered all 30 questions correctly.

The MTN Egg hunt was aligned to the ongoing “Oh, the things you’ll learn” Internet campaign. It was designed in line with MTN’s vision to lead the delivery of a bold, new Digital World and created specifically for MTN customers to experience and engage with our digital platforms, said MTN Chief Marketing Officer, Ernst Fonternel.

“We would love all our customers to experience the Internet by joining the fastest Internet in the New World to benefit from education and entertainment,” he added.

Thanking all the participants, Fonternel described the promotion as the first ever online promotion of its kind in the market, clearly emphasizing MTN’s interest in integrating Internet in everyday life of Ugandans.
