Rashad Al Shaikh, DGM Retail Banking at OAB said, “The Hassad savings scheme continues to encourage the habit of saving amongst our customers to ensure a stable and sustainable future for them as well as rewarding them with great prizes. The 2017 Hassad scheme focuses on rewarding customers through two kinds of monthly draws, which alternates every other month over each of our different operating regions together with a national draw.

This month’s draw was focused on the nation as a whole with winners being selected from amongst our 57 branch network across the country.”

As well as encourage all of our customers to increase their savings in order to increase their chances of winning hundreds of cash prizes which will continue until the end of 2017,” added Rashad.
