RapidShare AG, one of the most popular 1-click hosts, held a 50,000 Euro
prize draw for its premium and collector’s users on its webpage in May this
year. Bobby Chang, COO of RapidShare AG, personally presented the prize to
19-year-old Indian Srishti A. Over 500,000 participants from 60 countries
took part in the RapidShare Lottery.

The fact that the lucky winner was from India did not stop Bobby Chang from personally presenting the prize. “I take it for granted that the winner
should be congratulated personally” says Chang. “We were overwhelmed by the
number of countries using RapidShare. Particularly in India, there are many
young people enthusiastic about IT. We are proud that they use our product to
exchange data.”

The winner was clearly touched by the personal presentation of the prize.
“I still can’t believe it. With this prize, I can realise my dream of further
study at a respected college”, explained Srishti A. As an IT student, she
learned about RapidShare from her classmates. “RapidShare gives us the
opportunity to send larger files quickly and easily – we only need an
internet connection and everyone has one of those here! With my Premium
Account, I can securely save even confidential data online.”

Taking part in the RapidShare Lottery was uncomplicated and very easy:
users simply exchanged 50 RapidPoints for a lottery ticket, which was
automatically entered into the mega prize draw. RapidPoints are generated by
uploading and downloading files.
