Yangon, Myanmar – September 17, 2018 – Yoma Banks hosted its second draw event of the prize - linked account JZü at Junction City, Yangon on 13th September. 23 winners of JZü accounts were awarded during the draw for the month of August with a prize pool of MMK 36,124,625 MMK.

The majority of new JZü account owners are also eligible to participate in the upcoming draw. The first draw of JZü for July was held at the same venue and 31 winners from fourteen different cities and townships across the nation were randomly selected by a software to double their minimum account balance out of the total prize pool of 30,310,000 MMK.
On top of a 3% annual interest rate, which is calculated daily and paid monthly, each account will be able to participate in the monthly draw for a chance to double its monthly minimum balance by maintaining a 200,000 MMK of minimum balance in the JZü account. All winners are selected randomly by a software, and the monthly draw process is executed under the supervision of an independent 3rd party to ensure that all processes (internal and external) relating to the reward pool and reward distribution are aligned and compliant to the rules and regulations. This live prize draw was broadcasted on Yoma Bank’s Facebook page and Mizzima media.
JZü is the first prize-linked account that a Myanmar Bank has ever introduced and that is approved by the Central Bank of Myanmar. Yoma Bank created this product to bring the awareness of banking and financial literacy to the community and to also offer its digital banking products to the existing and new customers with the highest level of convenience and satisfaction.
One of the JZü winners for the month of August, the highest prize winner in August, Daw Zarli Tin Htun shared her feeling on her social media, “To my surprise, I won JZü draw today.

The reward pool for the year would be equal to 2.5% of the total cumulative deposits and it will start from a minimum of 30 million MMK per month. In the instance where the winner’s prize (10 lakhs) is higher than the remaining prize pool size (5 lakhs) left for the last draw, the bank will honor the complete total amount to the last winner.
