9 February 2017 marks a do or die moment for the eight contestants that will be vying for the mouth-watering R350 000 grand prize in the MTN GameZBoost Challenge. The MTN GameZBoost Challenge is a series of online tournaments that kicked off on December 5, 2016.

The GameZBoost Challenge was open to MTN customers for a subscription of R2 per day. A different game was used each week during the eight-week duration of the competition.

In the run up to today’s event, one winner was selected each week for a R50 000 prize money, and the 8 weekly winners became eligible to be part of the today’s event. Today, the 8 finalists are contesting for the grand prize of R350 000 in a three rounds challenge. Heinrich van Niekerk came out victorious as a grand prize winner.

The great news is that the runner ups will not go home empty handed, the 1st runner up walks away with a R150 000 prize and other contestants are walking away with R50 000 each.

Maxwell Nonge, Chief Digital Officer: MTN South Africa stated that: “The GameZBoost Challenge has offered our customers an opportunity to test their skills against each other in an exciting mobile gaming experience. We are excited that the competition has reached the final eight, and we look forward to another round of exhilarating performance from the contestants. This is one of the ways that MTN is making our customer’s lives a whole lot brighter.”

The final contestants have reiterated how this is changing their lives, being able to aspire to buy a house, car, education with the winnings from the competition is phenomenal.
