Cellcard offer more ways to win in new Fantasy League

The sixth edition of the Cellcard Fantasy League, which is scheduled to kick off on August 16, will see more managers collecting prizes than ever before.

Mobile phone operators Cellcard have confirmed they will offer Android smart phones to each of the top three teams at both the half way stage (end of gameweek 19) and at the conclusion of the season.

An Alcatel C9 model will be awarded to the two first placed sides, an Alcatel Mini to second placers and an Alcatel C5 to thirds. Each winner will also receive a US$60 SIM card, while fourth and fifth place finishers get the SIM card as well.

A $20 phone voucher will again be presented to champions of each of the 38 gameweeks under the previous year’s rules and conditions.

Team names, manager names, real names, phone numbers and occupation details must be registered by email to [email protected]. Existing teams need only update any changes to their team/manager name or phone number.

In the case of a tie in points total during a gameweek, the manager with the least transfers that week will be awarded the prize. If the transfers are the same, the prize will be split into two $10 vouchers.

A maximum of four transfers per gameweek is permitted, regardless of wildcards, to be eligible for prizes.

Individuals can register as many teams as they want as long as a different phone number is given for each side. However, managing multiple teams in the hope of a greater chance of success is discouraged and against the spirit of competition.

Managers without a Cambodian phone number, such as those living overseas, may donate their prizes to a person of their choice by providing the benefactor’s phone number on registration. Any foreign teams that do not register will be deleted from the table after a week of warning.

For the second successive season, a weekly competition will also be held on the Cellcard Fantasy facebook fanpage. Questions will be posed for each corresponding Fantasy League round, with a $10 phone voucher prize at stake. Users must like the fanpage to be eligible for prizes.

With the 2014 World Cup kicking off today, Cellcard services now include SMS updates on the tournament in Brazil. These include news, facts, history of World Cup and more, according to Cellcard officials. Cellcard users can subscribe by dialing #2014#1#, with a $0.25 per week charge applicable.

Live scores for the entire month-long tournament is also available for $0.50 by dialing #2014#3#.

Cellcard’s ‘Guess The Winner’ promotion is also being launched, which will see tactical texters given the chance to win prizes for correct result predictions.

Guesses are cast by texting the match number followed by either A for team A winning, B for team B winning or C for a draw to 2014. For instance for Match 8 between England and Italy on Saturday night, you can choose Italy to win by texting 8B to 2014.

Check our World Cup wallchart inserted in today’s paper for match numbers.

You can also dial 2014 and follow the instructions. Each guess will be charged at $0.10.

Prizes include an Alcatel Mini phone and gold number worth $60, an Alcatel C1, 10 gold numbers and 10 $5 phone vouchers during the group stage. The final on July 13 will see two chances to win $5,000 in cash.

Entrance to a lucky draw and World Cup live streaming services can be found through the official Cellcard website (www.cellcard.com.kh).
