HE spent only $89 for a pressure cooker but yesterday Sailesh Pala won Courts (Fiji) Limited's 2013 grand prize — an $80,000 4x4 French SUV vehicle.

Mr Pala, from Samabula, was the lucky draw winner after a recent draw was disqualified because of the competition terms and conditions.

Vision Group and Courts (Fiji) Ltd CEO Priyaraj Lakmal Munasinghe said their philosophy had always been to give back to their customers.

"The last two years we gave away houses but this year was our biggest ever draw," Mr Munasinghe said.

"2013 we gave away $60,000 worth of prizes and giveaway and its been topped off with this grand prize draw.

"It's historic because we've had a record number of participating customers and we gave away four vehicles."

The winners for the other three $45,000-worth Chevy cars were Nitesh Naicker from Dreketi in Labasa, Amani Sami from Vuniyasi in Nadi and Simione Namua from Nine Miles in Nakasi.

Mr Munasinghe said next weekend the winners would be presented with their prizes.
