It is 2014, the year of FIFA World Cup. The good thing – awesome football action participated by 32 countries in the world. The not so great thing – you have to stay up all night catching the best actions. The greatest thing – you can actually win a trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and watch the game in person!
Now personally I’ve gone through a lot of online competitions, many of them requires a hand eye coordination practise that you’ll never use again, or requires taking photos of yourself in silly costume/situations/poses that you might not want anyone else to see 5 years later.
But this one, is different.VISA’s new 2014 FIFA World Cup Financial football game is something else altogether. It is actually a game that is educational, fun, and rewarding all at the same time.
Before we start, lets ask the most important question.
So what you can stand to win? That’s the ultimate question isn’t it?
Well, here’s what the Grand Prize includes:
- round-trip coach class air transportation between Kuala Lumpur and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
- participation in a four-day, three-night hospitality program
- two category two tickets to see a FIFA World Cup in Brazil
- one US$300 Visa prepaid money card.
The 2nd to 5th placed finalists will each win Sony and Adidas merchandise.
The 6th to 10th placed finalists will each win an Adidas merchandise pack.
On top of that, the entry with the highest score each week will win an BSN Premium Savings certificate (BSN Sijil Simpanan Premium) worth RM1,000.
I hope I captured your attention.
The game itself is fairly straight forward, and I think, rather quite ingenious.
- step 1: visit
- step 2: register and login
- step 3: click on “Play The Game” and select “Single Player”
- step 4: ready to start the game
- step 5: select question difficulty: Hard, Medium, or Easy
- step 6: answer the questions correctly to advance
- step 7: score to win
- step 8: post your score
I actually learned quite a lot from the questions, such as the meaning of being a “good credit risk”, or how to minimize interests while paying down multiple credits, just to name two.
There’s also a time factor in this game, the faster you answer, the more goals you can score, and thus, more points!
Here’s the scoring matrix:
The contest is on-going and will last until 16 April 2014, so start playing now! The top ten scorers will be invited to compete at the Grand Final on 23 April for a chance to win the trip to Brazil.
