The competition to win gold Krugerrands begins on 10 October and ends on 11 November. The contestant with the highest score at the end of each competition week will win a Krugerrand from FNB.

“FNB is the first bank to implement such a game using a social media platform. It is just another way we bringing innovative products and services to our customers,” concludes Binikos.

The Krugerrand prize denominations that can be won at the end of each week are:

Week 2 = 1/10 Ounce

Week 3 = ¼ Ounce

Week 4 = ½ Ounce

Week 5 = 1 Full Ounce
