Gone are the days of buying a raffle ticket to win a meat try from your local pub, it seems these days raffles just aren’t what they used to be. Lucky for you, they’re better and this one is a real doozy. A mysterious Australian benefactor is raffling off 5 villa and lifestyle packages on a private Fiji island and the potentially life changing tropical prize pool has sparked a frenzy around the world.
Forget Fiji holiday packages, these prize packages are valued at US$5 million and 5 lucky winners will soon own their own slice of paradise on Wavi Island. The embodiment of the best that Fiji has to offer, Wavi is a spectacular and secluded 27 acre private island nestled off the shores of Vanua Levu accessible by a private bridge.
This rare chance to win a villa in one of the most tranquil and beautiful locations in the world is being offered by an anonymous Australian owner who is raffling off 5 villas, each valued at $6.7 million. The picturesque island is accompanied by 20 building blocks and the winners will receive custom-build villas packages on lots 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20.
Each of the 5 winners will receive an incredible 3 bedroom villa incorporating traditional Fijian designs and modern conveniences, their own private pool, a complete fit out package, two 5 night full paid trips to see your villa being built as well as a handover briefing from island management, access to your own boat mooring, use of all resort facilities, rental income for life and no management fees or owner costs until rental income is achieved.
Little is known about the entrepreneur behind the raffle, however it has been revealed that they are based in Victoria. A spokesperson said that two years had been spent trying to secure the international gaming permits required to hold the raffle.
“Seeing the success of other property raffles, the Wavi Island owner has acquired the worldwide licences to proceed with a raffle,” spokeswomen Lynn Malone said.
Selling at just $25, these raffle tickets may just be the best purchase you ever make. The first winner will be drawn once 300,000 tickets have been sold so there’s still time to make your Fiji dreams come true. Best of all, the generous owners will also be making significant and ongoing donations to charities and research facilities associated with cerebral palsy, macular degeneration and muscular dystrophy as well as donating a minimum of FJD 1,000,000 to the local Fijian community in consultation with Chief Tui Nasavusavu of the Savusavu region.
