When an iTICKET customer who purchased tickets to the 2018 Armageddon Expo received an out-of-the-blue phone call from Rokt in January this year, she was suspicious when they announced she had won their $5,000 monthly draw. In fact she barely remembered having entered a competition at all.

"Initially I was unsure if the competition was legitimate. I couldn't recall entering a competition of this sort - and it's not every day you win that much money! I called up the iTICKET team to see if I'd really won, and when they confirmed the news, I was beyond excited!"

After being assured that she had won a legitimate sweepstake and that the funds were soon to be deposited into her account, the Armageddon fan called our iTICKET customer support line to double check. As our first winner of a major Rokt sweepstake, we were equally delighted to verify the prize and confirmed that she had entered the competition on iTICKET via our advertising partner Rokt after completing her Armageddon booking.

When we touched base with the Rokt NZ Director Andrew Evans to confirm the win he had this to say,

"It is a perk of the job being able to ring our winners, and we are usually met with huge excitement or curiosity and skepticism. Stacey was the later so doesn't surprise me she called you guys to double check!"

Now with the winnings safe in hand, our winner is looking forward to putting her prize money towards some overseas travel.

"I'm going to put the money towards some overseas adventures. I'm not sure where at this stage, maybe Tahiti or Rarotonga. And of course I'll take my family out for a nice dinner."

And when we asked whether the win would encourage her to enter more post-purchase sweepstakes in the future she said,

"I wouldn't want to push my luck too much after winning such an incredible prize... but you've got to be in it to win it, so I will probably give it another go in the future. It's such an easy way to get in the draw."
