Mmbooi says that she is an avid fan of Vodacom's promotional competitions and would use the USSD (*133# or *135#) channel to access the ShakeOff Summer menu. She adds that she never expected that she would one day be a grand prize winner.

Vodacom has indicated that this will be Mmbooi's first car and, to her, it represents a beacon of hope. Mmbooi says that she felt overwhelmed when she received the exciting news, but was sad that she was unable to share this important milestone with her mother, who had recently passed away.

Before her win, Mmbooi says that she was accustomed to hiring cars and calling for assistance in times of need. She says that the Mini Cooper will not only be able to help her and her immediate family but will allow her to assist those in her community in these times of difficulty.

Mmbooi adds that her key to success was embracing the element of fun that comes with the competition and encourages all Vodacom customers to participate.

"You are rewarded for taking part, that's always good to remember. It is also just a game and you never know when your luck will strike," concludes Mmbooi.

Since launching in November 2020, Vodacom's campaign has rewarded customers with R3.58-million in cash prize money and two Mini Cooper three-door hatchbacks.

Individuals are encouraged to view the VodaBucks and ShakeOff 2020 winners on the VodaBucks Winners Wall. Individuals can also join the VodaBucks Rewards Programme by downloading the My Vodacom App or dial *133#.
