Cash Pot

Jamaica Gleaner - - FAMILY & RELIGION -

EX­CITE­MENT AND an­tic­i­pa­tion filled the air in down­town Kingston last Fri­day, as the Supreme Ven­tures ‘Cash Pot in the Streets’ made its first stop. The pro­mo­tion was the first of sev­eral which will be held across the is­land be­tween now and De­cem­ber.

Gam­ing fans and cu­ri­ous on­look­ers con­verged on the well-known gath­er­ing spot on Or­ange Street known as ‘Big Tree’, to see what prizes and sur­prises the team had in store for their loyal cus­tomers. Un­der the pro­mo­tion, per­sons who pur­chased a Cash Pot ticket of $200 or more could en­ter for a chance to dip into the jumbo Cash Pot caul­dron for prizes that ranged from branded items, small ap­pli­ances, gift cer­tifi­cates to on-the-spot cash prizes.

One of the day’s win­ners, Sasha-Gaye Grant, ad­mit­ted to play­ing the Cash Pot game for 15 years, as she held on tightly to her box of newly won prizes.

“This is my month and Sun­day (last week) is my birth­day. Cash Pot give me my present, see my DVD here and my hot plate. I won’t stop play­ing Cash Pot, even when I don’t win I’ll still buy it.”

The first leg of the Cash Pot dee­jay song com­pe­ti­tion also kicked off, ac­com­pa­nied by dance-offs be­tween pa­trons old and young that whipped the au­di­ence into a frenzy.

RJR 94FM’s af­ter­noon mav­er­icks, Ac­tion and Burg­er­man, held the fort in ra­dio land with a three-hour out­side broad­cast that cap­tured all the ac­tion on stage.

Di­a­hann Guy, cor­po­rate com­mu­ni­ca­tions plan­ning and ac­ti­va­tion man­ager, was more than pleased with the turnout.

“The turnout for to­day, our first day, was re­ally, re­ally great. We truly ap­pre­ci­ate our loyal Cash Pot play­ers and wel­comed the op­por­tu­nity to give them even more ways to win to­day. We can’t wait to get into the other towns we have lined up.”

‘Cash Pot in the Streets’ makes its next stop in Man­dev­ille, Manch­ester, on Novem­ber 5; Sav-la-Mar, West­more­land, on Novem­ber 12; Ocho Rios in St Ann on Novem­ber 18. The pro­mo­tion concludes with a huge fi­nale on De­cem­ber 2 at Man­dela Park, Half-Way Tree. Up to $7 mil­lion dol­lars in cash and prizes will be up for grabs dur­ing the ‘Cash Pot in the Streets’ pro­mo­tion.
