Ithmaar Bank, the Bahrain-based Islamic retail bank, announced yesterday that Bahraini Amna Jamal Al-Ahmad, a recent graduate from the university, has won the Grand Prize for Thimaar account of $ 1 million.
The Grand Prize draw was held for a remote Thimaar account at the bank’s headquarters in Seef District, in coordination and under the supervision of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, the external observers (BDO) Bahrain and the bank’s internal observers.
“I am thrilled to win the grand prize for the Thimaar account, which will definitely change my life,” said Amna Al-Ahmad. When I received a phone call from the bank to inform me that I won a million US dollars, I could not believe the news, it was really a big surprise to me. ”
She added, “I would like to thank the bank for providing many opportunities for us to win these valuable prizes. I will continue to save more, and I will also encourage my friends and family to open a Thimaar account, especially now that they can easily and conveniently open the account through their mobile phones through the Ithmaar Bank app. ”
Ithmaar Bank Chief Executive Officer Ahmed Abdul Rahim said: “On behalf of Ithmaar Bank, we extend our sincere congratulations to Amna, her family, and all the winners of the Thimaar draw. We are glad that we were able to bring joy and happiness to many families in Bahrain. The Thimaar Account, now in its eleventh year, is no longer only designed to encourage individuals to adopt a financially responsible behavior by giving more rewards for saving, but the prizes it offers can change the lives of the winners. ”
Abdul Rahim added: “Ithmaar Bank is committed to becoming the best bank for individuals. Prize-based savings accounts have become an essential product in retail banking, and thus there is a great challenge for banks to find new ways to differentiate their products. For example, the Thimaar account offers the largest number of winning chances compared to other products in Bahrain, and it has also become one of the programs that offer the largest prizes, and this is an attraction for savers.
Themaar Account is a prize-based savings account that Ithmaar Bank launched to encourage its customers to save. In 2020, Ithmaar Bank announced the distribution of more than $ 26 million USD to nearly 29,000 winners up to the tenth year since the launch of the Thimaar account. And this year, the prizes for the Thimaar account will include many surprises that will be announced soon.
Thimaar customers are eligible to enter the draw if a minimum of 30 Bahraini dinars is kept in the Thimaar account. The more customers save and the longer they maintain the amount of BHD 30 and its multiples, the higher their chances of winning.
