The Al Mumayaz Savings Scheme for 2013 from Bank Sohar provided a major incentive for customers to save money for their future, as well as giving customers an opportunity to win fabulous prizes throughout the year. The bank achieved this by offering a better chance of winning to those that save more into their account.
Customers had four chances for every minimum average balance of just RO100 maintained in their accounts for any of the above draws, apart from the exclusive prize draw which required the aforementioned minimum average balance of RO10,000 and the grand draw of RO600,000 which required a minimum balance of only RO1,000. Additionally, children's savings accounts had double the chance of winning compared to a standard saving account, giving eight chances for every minimum average balance maintained.
