NEW AMSTERDAM, BERBICE – Berbicians were given the opportunity to search and find cash for Christmas last week when Digicel took the Merry Mansion Game Show to the Ancient County.
The venue was the Little Rock Television Station in New Amsterdam. There, the first five persons to show up dressed in red were afforded the opportunity to play a smaller version of the game which was previously held in Georgetown.
The prize money – $100,000 in total – was placed in red envelopes and concealed at different spots in the studio and the contestants were given 60 seconds to hunt for the prize.
Top winner was Cameal Seeram of Number Two Village in East Canje who walked away with $40,000. Next in line were Adrian Sankar of Number Two Village on the West Coast of Berbice – $25,000; Ruksh Tekean of Albion – $20,000; Dane Johnson of New Amsterdam – $10,000 and Nandalall Baburam also of Number Two Village – $5,000.
Marketing/Communication Manager Alea McDonald noted that from the inception, the original Mansion in Georgetown saw lots of persons from Berbice being selected and this was Digicel’s way of reaching out to those in the Ancient County.
The Merry Mansion Game Show offers Digicel’s customers a chance to win millions of dollars and other prizes. To qualify for the original game show, a pre-paid customer must top up his/her phone with $500 or more and those on the post-paid plan must pay their bill in full.
From all those who satisfied this condition, 15 random persons are selected live on NCN at 08:05 hours every Thursday to go the Mansion. There, the figure would further be reduced to five contestants who would actually search the Merry Mansion.
But no one walks away empty handed since those who were not fortunate to get inside the Merry Mansion would each receive $5,000 free credit. The five winners would be given a Nokia E63 handset in addition to what they would have found.
The Digicel Merry Mansion Game Show began on November 18th and concludes on January 7th 2010.
Ms. McDonald posited that this unique television show does not only see the actual winners running laps around the excitement track, but brings enjoyment to home viewers as well. She said a total of $500,000 is added weekly along with the cash left in the Mansion after the each search.
The person with the highest amount rolls over to the following week and automatically gets into the mansion to search for more cash. Ranole Bourne was the winner for the first week with $146,000 and went on to win $295,000 but was knocked out by Melissa Abrams who won $305,000 that week and went on to the following week where she found $205,000 and subsequently $185,000. Melissa Abrams is the contestant rolling over and would be back this week to search for more cash.
According to Tagman’s PR Executive to Digicel, Shonnet Moore, the Merry Mansion game show in Georgetown is aired on NCN in Berbice, Linden and Georgetown, CCB and LRTVS in Berbice, RCA in Essequibo, Tarzi in Bartica, HJTV in Georgetown and Mahdia Television Station each Sunday with a re-broadcast every Wednesday.
