On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the Premium program, Nikola Špadijer, the Executive Director of Hipotekarna Bank for retail banking, emphasised that: 'The constant growth of satisfied users of Mastercard Premium program, which has become the most popular program of its kind in Montenegro, is the best indicator that we, together with our partners, have been truly committed to our customers for the past ten years. In the previous six years alone, the number of users has increased two and a half times - from about 14 to almost 40 thousand users. In that period, the number of partners almost doubled - from 300 partners with their 900 outlets in 2015, we came to close to 600 partners with over 2,000 outlets. We have constantly upgraded the program having in mind the needs and wishes of our clients, thus improving the user experience. Today, the Premium card is the payment card with the highest number of benefits on the Montenegrin market, which can be used at more than 2000 locations in Montenegro for discounts of up to 30% and payments up to 24 instalments. The Premium card offers its owners a choice of as many as 2 of the 4 insurance policies, and also provides an additional benefit of the Mastercard platinum platform. In the coming period, together with our partners, we will continue to improve this program through innovation. '

Jelena Ristić, the Director for Markets of Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina at the company Mastercard, also expressed satisfaction with Mastercard's participation in the Premium program: 'When we introduced the new Premium Mastercard at the end of last year as part of the recognisable PREMIUM program by Hipotekarna Bank, we allowed customers to enjoy the benefits that only Mastercard Platinum portfolio provides, ranging from free access to business clubs at airports to enjoying unforgettable experience within Priceless Cities program. With this prize contest, we want to thank the users who find the Premium Mastercard to be their best way for making their daily purchases, and we believe that the attractive prize fund will encourage new users to experience the speed, security and convenience of card payments always and everywhere. '

The winner will be picked by randomly selecting the name of the owner of the Hipotekarna Bank Premium Mastercard, using software specially designed for this occasion.
