Opera Mini became the №1 app in South Africa 

An excited winner enjoys "Shake and Win."

Hey there Opera fans,

We’ve got some pretty awesome news to share with you today: Opera Mini, the fantastic, data-saving browser brought to you by Opera, became the most popular app in South Africa on the Google Play Store in June!

This achievement was thanks to the resounding success of Opera’s latest edition of “Shake & Win.” Previous editions of the campaign have captivated millions of participants and created a daily whirlwind of excitement, so it’s no surprise that this current edition helped catapult Opera Mini to number one in South Africa. 

“We always have fun with ‘Shake and Win’ here at Opera. It’s all about spreading excitement while giving our winners valuable goods and services,” says Jørgen Arnesen, EVP Mobile at Opera.

Now, if you’re unaware of the “Shake and Win” campaign, you’re probably curious about how it works – and how you can participate. 

Well, it’s all about adding some fun and competition to your day while giving you the chance to win some fantastic prizes. We’re talking about over 130,000 prizes up for grabs! From cash vouchers and data bundles to brand-new phones, there’s something for everyone. And guess what? All you have to do is give your phone a little shake. 

If you’re in South Africa, just open Opera Mini and you’ll find the “Shake and Win” campaign page through a floating button on the start page. Once you’re there, give your phone a shake, and voila! You could win an instant prize or get a puzzle piece for a shot at the major prizes. To score those big wins, like a shiny new phone or up to 5,000 South African rand in cash, all you need to do is collect six puzzle pieces and complete the prize puzzle. 

So, to all the Opera fans in South Africa – the time is now! Download Opera Mini, immerse yourself in the “Shake and Win” action, and who knows? You might just be the next lucky winner.  

Opera Mini topped the Google Play Store from 13 to 18 June.
