TAB is giving away R35000 in free bets, including a R10000 grand prize, to account holders who have updated their Financial Intelligence Centre Act (FICA) documentation since August 1 last year or who do so before March 28 2010.

As an "accountable institution", Phumelela is legally obliged to verify the identity of each account holder and to suspend the accounts of customers who have not provided up-to-date FICA documentation.

To facilitate the process and to simultaneously thank horse-racing and soccer clients for their support, TAB has launched a competition for all its account holders.

A total of R35000 in free TAB bets is up for grabs in the lucky draw competition, which comprises a grand-prize draw and weekly draws with R1000 free TAB bets for each of two account holders each week.

The first weekly draw will take place after the week ending Sunday February 21 and continue until the week ending Sunday March 28 with 12 customers each winning R1000 free bets over the six weeks.

And to reward customers who have updated their FICA documentation from August 1 last year to February 14, there will be a lucky draw for three prizes of R1000 free TAB bets.

All TAB account holders who have updated their FICA documentation since August 1 last year or who do so by Sunday March 28 will automatically be entered into the grand prize draw, in which the first TAB account holder drawn wins R10000 free TAB bets with R5000, R3000 and R2000 free bets for second, third and fourth.

It's easy for TAB account holders to update their FICA documentation. Simply fax a copy of your ID document (preferable) or driver's licence and proof of residence to 0866 131 932. Alternatively, e-mail scans of the necessary documents to fica@phumelela.co.zaa

For proof of residence a municipal rates and taxes invoice, a telephone account or a utility bill for electricity, a mortgage or bank statement and an official tax return or letter from SARS can be used as long as it is addressed to your actual dwelling place and not a box number.

To facilitate the process, TAB account holders are asked to ensure that they write their name, TAB account number and contact phone numbers on the first page of the fax or scan. Prize winners will be notified by phone.
