Overall top ranked participants will stand a chance to win an array of fantastic prizes including an Apple iPad mini, Apple iPhone 5s, and a Lenovo ThinkPad E431. Launching on June 11th, the World Cup Guessing Contest is open for free to all users of UC Browser.

“Football fever is at its peak in India and with the World Cup Bonanza we want to heat things up further for all the football fanatics in the country,” said Abhishek Sharma, Director of Marketing Communications at UCWeb India. “Throughout the recent IPL 2014 regular season and playoffs, UCWeb ran the ‘IPL Guessing Game’ which drew participation from over half a million cricket fans per day across India in a bid to win fantastic prizes. With the World Cup Guessing Contest, UCWeb has raised the bar higher and is offering its users an opportunity to not only get instant updates on live scores and news, but also to win exciting prizes. The stakes are high but the rewards are higher, including a golden chance to win Rs. 1 Crore. This is a very unique initiative from UC Browser and we expect a lot of football enthusiasts in India to participate.”
