The Swapit team congratulates Ambrose, the winner of our OnePlus X Give Away, which ended earlier this week. We have seen a lot of great Swapit users who have joined our Give Away promotion and were eligible to win. In the end, only one could win and Ambrose seems to be very happy with his prize:
When asked what he will do with his new phone, Ambrose said:
I’m gonna give it to my girlfriend. She wanted a new phone anyway, and this is a great gift for her. She will be happy.
That’s the spirit! Thanks a lot for participating Ambrose!
We’ll definitely be back with another great Give Away. Perhaps it’s another great gadget, perhaps something else. Stay tuned and make sure to have Swapit installed on your phone. You can get it for free at: http://get.swapit.la

The Winner Drawing Process
For those of you who are interested in how we drew the winner, here are some details.
First, we pulled all the participants from our database of participants. We printed their names on a sheet of paper. Then, we ensured, people who have invited not just 6 of their phone contacts, but also their Facebook friends, get a second stake in the draw. Thus, their names entered the draw again. So we ended up with a bowl with a lot of names on small paper sheets. I then drew randomly 5 different names and we numbered them. The first name I drew was the winner, the second name was the backup winner (second in line), the third name was another backup winner and so on. Now we proceed as explained in the “HOW THE WINNER WILL BE SELECTED” section of our first blog post about this Give Away. Therefore, I personally contacted the winner (i.e. the person I drew first from the bowl) about his win and gave him or her 24 hours to reply. After several hours, I did not receive a reply and so I followed up with that person. Yet, the 24 hours did pass and the first selected winner was out of the race. So I moved on to the next one in line and that was Ambrose. He got back to me quickly and it was all settled. Then we just needed a time for him to come in and receive his gift. So yesterday 4:45pm we got together and handed him his very own OnePlus X.
We’ve taken some photos along the way, just for reference. We want this process to be as transparent as possible and therefore, I believe it is important to publish and explain our process of drawing a winner. Have a look at our quick photo gallery:
