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.
