Maltco Lotteries, the custodian of Malta’s national lottery brand, have presented the winners of the EURO 2016 Facebook Photo Competition with their cash prizes, two of which have decided to donate their monetary prize to charities; Pet Finder Malta and the Children’s’ Home run by the Sisters of Angela House in G’Mangia.

Participants in the U*BET Facebook Competition took selfies or photos of themselves together with creating an original design containing the U*BET ‘Live the Game’ slogan. The six photos gathering the most likes won cash prizes, with the first prize being €1000, while the five other winners each received €200.

The captions which some of the winners included with their photos were heartfelt. One winner wrote: “U*BET!!! No messing with `Heidi & Lulu` (the two dogs benefitting from this prize) to win this Game! Any winnings are donated to `Pet Finder Malta` to help Sanctuaries in need. Like, Like, Like xxx.” Another of the winning entries, from renowned sports journalist Sandro Micallef, wrote: “We are in the U*BET competition as well #tvmsports!! Like our photo and should we win by getting most likes we will donate the total financial prize to the Children’s Home, run by the Sisters of Angela House in G’Mangia as a sign of support, appreciation and dedication.”

Maltco Lotteries CEO Vasileios Kasiotakis said: “EURO 2016 was a great opportunity for all football fans to engage in our retail outlets as well as online at U*BET’s Facebook page. The response has been very positive. I’m sure that the chance to take part in this innovative Facebook competition organised by our U*BET team helped the community to explore the wonderful generous side of the Maltese character, and have fun in the process. Maltco would like to thank everyone for taking part and in particular those winners who were so kind in donating their winnings to charity.”
