Scantastic result – first timer Oscar scoops £9,000
Article date: 26 Jan 2012

Talk about beginner’s luck - university student Oscar Archer had plenty to celebrate when he won a £9,000 prize, equivalent to a year’s student fees, after entering his name into a Wetherspoon’s student competition.

Run in conjunction with Bacardi Brown-Forman Brands and Carlsberg UK students were offered a range of discounts at Wetherspoon pubs, as part of its Unlocked App campaign.

As a second year Maths student at Warwick University you would expect Oscar to spot the good value of the offers he could unlock using the app – but the idea of scanning a QR code on the beer mat was new to him – but he who dares wins!

A quick scan and he was in the prize draw which he would ultimately win – and now Oscar can count his lucky stars along with the nine grand he has pocketed.
