Each RO 100 average balance will count as one entry into the weekly draw.
  • Monthly – this draw will be held on a monthly basis for the eligible customers. For the monthly prize draw the eligibility will be monthly average balance of RO 100, so each RO 100 will count as one entry into the monthly draw.

The average balance calculation will be based on number of days of the month so in case it is Jan. it will be 31 days, Feb. will be 28 days and so on irrespective of the account opening date.
