ONE MILLION PENNY WINDFALL UP FOR GRABS AT THE DOGS
Nine hundred and ninety-five thousand, three hundred and forty two and counting.............
The UK's dog tracks are eagerly awaiting their one millionth customer this month from the sports ultra popular 1pmealdeal race goer campaign and to celebrate, the sport is set to give away every single penny it has taken so far to the lucky one-millionth customer.
In true 'Wonka golden ticket style' the person who downloads the One Penny Meal Deal Voucher from www.1pmealdeal.com valid for the one-millionth customer will win a cool ten thousand pounds (1 million pennies!) just what you need in the lead up to Christmas.
Launched on October 2008, the 1pmealdeal gives race goers a night out at one of the UK's twenty-seven registered greyhound tracks, and a fast food meal all for only 1p each.
"It has been a phenomenally successful campaign," said industry spokesman James McCreadie, "The tracks realised, with headlines about credit crunch and recession, that the public were more price conscious than ever.
"To highlight what great value a night at the dogs is - with all the leisure activities you could want under one roof: live sport, good food, drinking, a social bet and an overall unbeatable night out - we launched 1pmealdeal.com targeting new customers and reactivating those who may have been occasionally in the past. With a voucher valid for up to four people, we've had families and groups of friends through the turnstiles and now we are approaching our one-millionth customer."
