Set for Life goes mobile

Persons living on the windward side of the island last Sunday got a first hand look at the brand new Nissan X-Trail currently up for grabs in the National Lotteries Authority (NLA) Set for Life game.{{more}}
The game, which was introduced by the NLA over seven months ago, offers a lucky person the opportunity to be set for life by winning a house, located at Cane Grove, EC$50,000 and a brand new Nissan X-Trail jeep. Tickets cost only EC$5 with the grand draw expected to be made on June 18.
Marketing Officer at the National Lottery Kumar Persaud and Deon Paul, Miss Set for Life and first runner-up in the Miss St. Vincent and the Grenadines Pageant 2004, took the jeep on a tour of the windward area. There, persons got the opportunity to meet Miss Set for Life and purchase tickets straight from the Nissan X-Trail.
Another lottery vehicle mounted with speakers, which played one of the Set for Life theme songs done by popular artiste Madzart, also made the Sunday tour.
A number of persons used the opportunity to buy tickets and interact with Miss Set for Life and Persaud. Persons jokingly asked whether “the beautiful Miss Set for Life was also part of the package”.
Stops were made in Richland Park, Yambou, Biabou, South Union and Georgetown among other places on the map, as persons seemed very enthusiastic about the game that, according to one person, “offers so much for just five dollars”.
Miss Set for Life also took the opportunity to pose for a photo and interact with children from the Potential Youth Group. This group is about two months old and hails from Georgetown; it is being run by Sister Marina Nehon of the Catholic Church in that area. The kids also got a pep talk from Persaud in which he encouraged them to take their education seriously.
Although the children were too young to take part in the Set for Life game, a few of them revealed that their parents have purchased tickets.
According to Marketing Officer Persaud, the tour was made so that persons in the countryside would get an opportunity to see the Set for Life vehicle and learn more about the game.
The Set for Life on- the-road promotion is expected to continue over the next couple of weeks with Miss Set for Life riding along to greet persons. The tour moves to the leeward side of the island tomorrow Saturday. It ends in Chateaubelair. During the week, however, the Set for Life crew will make visits to popular spots in Kingstown, Arnos Vale and Calliaqua.
The Set for Life game, which is the NLA’s 20th anniversary commemorative game also offered persons the opportunity to win monthly consolation prizes.
