KUALA LUMPUR:After an intense two-hour battle involving ping pong balls and bingos, a husband-and-wife team from Johor emerged as the champion of the MR D.I.Y. 'Bounce & Bingo' tournament, taking home RM10,000 in cash.
Moey Yen Ying and Ng Boon Pin from Johor defeated 15 other teams from across Malaysia to clinch the coveted title.
The duo triumphed over the Sabah team in the first round, the Melaka team in the quarter-final, and the Selangor team in the semi-final before securing the championship against Putrajaya with a bingo formed in 17 seconds.
Expressing their excitement, Moey and Ng said, “We were nervous at the beginning of the tournament, but gained momentum and became calmer after a few rounds.
“It feels surreal to win. We want to thank those who supported us and a big thank you to MR D.I.Y. for organising 'Bounce & Bingo'.
“We look forward to shopping more at MR D.I.Y. in the future, but for now, we cannot wait to treat our family to a delicious meal.”
This national-level game tournament offers attractive cash and prizes worth up to RM25,000, including cash, cash vouchers, trophies, and medals.
As the champion of MR D.I.Y.’s ‘Bounce & Bingo’ tournament, Moey and Ng, representing Johor, brought home RM10,000 in cash and a trophy.
The first runners-up, a team from Putrajaya—friends Ahmad Daud Abdul Manan and Rashid Mat Rani—also took home a RM5,000 cash prize and a trophy.
The second runners-up were a husband-and-wife team from Selangor, Mohd Khairul Anuar Isa and Nur Ikmal Ibrahim Bakri, who took home a trophy and a RM3,000 cash prize.
Additionally, the tournament also rewarded 13 other teams from Sarawak, Melaka, Perak, Terengganu, Kelantan, Kedah, Perlis, Sabah, Negeri Sembilan, Pulau Pinang, Kuala Lumpur, Pahang, and Labuan with consolation prizes of cash vouchers worth RM500 each.
Commenting on the recent tournament held at MR D.I.Y. PLUS, Mid Valley Megamall, MR D.I.Y. Group’s marketing head Alex Goh said, “This is MR D.I.Y.’s first time organising a game tournament, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive with over 5,000 entries for the first stage of the tournament held from Nov 3-5.
“We are proud that this tournament has attracted many Malaysians from various backgrounds, including our youngest contestant, an eight-year-old boy from Kedah, who made it to the grand finals.
“All of our grand finalists have shown excellent sportsmanship despite the intensity of the games. As an organiser, we couldn’t be prouder of each and every one of them. Congratulations to all the finalists and thank you, Malaysians, for playing ‘Bounce & Bingo’. We’ll see you next year.”
Goh added that there will be more game tournaments organised in the future as the response has been greatly encouraging.
"With these game tournaments, we aim to make our customers' visits to MR. D.I.Y. stores more enjoyable and memorable so we can add value to their lives.”
The ‘Bounce & Bingo’ is MR D.I.Y.’s first-ever game tournament initiative. While it is an easy game, it requires teamwork, skill, and luck to win.
The game aims to encourage Malaysian families to team up and experience the joy and excitement of playing a simple and easy game while standing a chance to win lucrative prizes.
Stage One of the tournament was held between Nov 3 to 5 at 48 MR D.I.Y. PLUS stores across Malaysia, attracting a total of 5,192 participants. Stage Two, the Grand Finals, took place at MR D.I.Y. PLUS, Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur, on Nov 25.
