FDH wins $100,000 in vaccination lucky draw

09 September 2021

By Vir B. Lumicao 

The FDH was among 20 second-prize winners in the lottery drawn Wednesday 

Foreign domestic helpers may not have qualified for the $10.8 million flat grand prize in Hong Kong’s biggest vaccination campaign promotion, but one of them did get lucky enough to win a $100,000 bonanza.

The helper is easily identified by the first two letters of her HKID card, WX11**** which are exclusively allocated to FDHs in Hong Kong. The second set of identifiers,  ****0687,” represent the last four digits of her phone number.

The unidentified helper was the fifth winner of 20 secondary prizes of $100,000 each in pre-paid credit cards and cash vouchers which were drawn yesterday.

The top prize in the draw was a 449-square-foot flat at Grand Central in Kwun Tong which went to a Hong Kong permanent resident with HKID card number that starts with Z710. The last four digits of his telephone number are 0215. 

The internet was immediately abuzz with speculations as to who the lucky winner might be. The ID numbers indicate the winner should be between 32 and 41 years old, but with not much clue to get by the identity of the lucky person would remain a mystery to many.


The lucky draw was jointly sponsored by Ng Teng Fong Charitable Foundation Ltd, the philanthropic arm of Sino Group and Chinese Estates Holdings Ltd.

The raffle kicked off a handful of other lucky draws sponsored by private businesses that were intended to encourage Hong Kong residents to get vaccinated against Covid-19.

The flat raffle alone attracted more than 2.5 million permanent residents of Hong Kong who were vaccinated in the city, the only ones qualified to join.

The grand prize, a 1-bedroom flat in this development, was won by a young Hongkonger

For the other prizes on offer, non-permanent residents aged 18 and above who received their vaccination in Hong Kong were qualified to join.


The 20 winners of pre-paid cards and credit cards with a value of HK$100,000 each have the following HKID and telephone numbers combinations: 

1. D514****    ****1345
2. Z234****    ****6997
3. R073****    ****1361
4. M356****    ****8960
5. WX111****    ****0687
6. V100****    ****0532
7. R603****    ****5556
8. K527****    ****0576
9. E810****    ****8466
10. Z661****    ****9104
11. P082****    ****2171
12. G637****    ****9172
13. D482****    ****2209
14. Z167****    ****9076
15. F050****    ****8560
16. Y137****    ****5403
17. Z456****    ****4585
18. Z258****    ****2988
19.Y351****    ****8099
20. C320****    ****8586

The Phase 2 Lucky Draw is now open for online registration. The organizers said Hong Kong residents who received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine in Hong Kong on or before Sept 30 can register between 9am on Sept 2 and 5.30pm on Sept 30.


Eligible permanent residents who have registered for the Phase 1 Lucky Draw but did not win the grand prize will automatically be enrolled in Phase 2.

For the Phase 2 Lucky Draw, organizers said they will offer one more residential flat at Grand Central, Kwun Tong worth about $12 million if five million or more of the population get at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine in Hong Kong by Sept 30.

As of today, Sept. 9, the number of people who have received the first dose of a vaccine here is 4.2 million, which means that the daily vaccination rate until the end of the month should average about 38,000 before this target is reached.

Given that the daily rate has now sunk to just about 10,000, it is not likely that this promised prize would make it to the next lottery.

The top draws in the second phase are 20 scholarships in the form of pre-paid cards or credit cards with a value of $200,000 each. Thus this draw is open only to vaccinated Hong Kong residents aged 12 to 18 years old.

Registration details of the next lucky draw are available here.

Meanwhile, the Hong Kong Tourism Board said it will announce the winners of its “Free Tours Lucky Draw” tomorrow. A total of 10,044 winners were drawn.

The board rolled out the giveaway in August as part of the campaign to boost the city’s vaccination rate, offering some 20,000 quotas in designated local tours, totaling about $10 million.

The results will be announced on the board’s designated website and winners will also receive SMS confirmation. Departure dates are set from late September to mid-November.
