We will spare you the ordeal of all this. Anybody who wish to be present during the draw will be welcome to attend, but to be a winner, you do not have to be at the draw.

The winners draw will be overseen by the same financial company that will audit the final account of this competition to ensure total transparency and that the draw is fair and above board.

As all prizes will have to be couriered to winners outside of Gauteng, the prize may be exchanged with the same value and type, but from Takealot and delivered to your house or business by them. This will be personally discussed and organised with the winners outside of Gauteng to ensure that they are completely happy with the exchange of the prize.

Since it will be exorbitant to send prizes across the border and defeat the purpose of this sweepstake competition - namely to raise funds - every prize winner outside of South Africa may nominate a family or friend in South Africa as the receiver of their winning prize.

Unfortunately this is not possible. One of the purposes of this sweepstake competition is to raise money for the small businesses who are making the prizes for the competition. No prize can therefore be exchanged for cash.
