Standard Bank Your Next Competition

Standard Bank Your Next Competition

As a financial institution focused on much more than just our bottom line, we’re on a journey with you to help you reach your ambitions – your Next. The next step on this quest is Your Next Million™, a TV gameshow that will air on SABC1 every Wednesday at 8:27 p.m. from 14 February to 25 April, giving Standard Bank Gold cardholders a chance to win up to R1 million every week.

Your Next Million™ follows a tried-and-tested game show format, but it does have a notable twist: questions are based on financial well-being, keeping in line with our goal to move South Africa forward.

Viewers are also sure to be drawn by the show’s hosts, Thembisa Mdoda and Mashabela Galane.

Best known as the host of the sixth season of Mzansi Magic’s Our Perfect Wedding, Thembisa is perfectly suited to be the game show presenter. With her gregarious style, she’ll guide contestants through each gameshow segment, while keeping the audience informed and entertained.

Mashabela, Comedian, winner of multiple awards, and host of numerous prestigious events (including the 2017 SAMA pre-party), Mashabela is a non-negotiable for TV gold.

Your Next Million™ is broken into three segments: in round one, Fastest Finger, contestants are asked a single Standard Bank product-related question. The contestant with the fastest correct answer will go on to the next stage, a step closer to their R1 million “next”.

In the second segment, round one’s winner can “pay it forward” to a friend, family member, or audience member using the Standard Bank App. The chosen beneficiary will receive R10 000 to activate their own “next”. The standard bank will also donate a further R50 000 to a registered NGO focused on early childhood development and schooling, thus helping young children reach their “next”, too.

The third segment is the moment of truth where the contestant will spin the wheel in the hope of winning R1miilion.

This game show is specifically aimed at our gold customers and how we can help them reach their next no matter how big or small.

“The focus is not only on entertainment,” says Tinyiko Mageza, Head of Marketing, Retail, and Business Banking at Standard Bank. “The educational aspect makes certain that the viewers benefit, as well as the contestants. Those who watch will realize that there are financial solutions out there that can help them reach their dreams.”

Qualifying to be on Your Next Million™ TV game show is easy, but exclusive to new and existing Standard Bank Gold Credit and Cheque cardholders.
