London Series ‘Diamond in the Deck’ Winner
Toronto Wolfpack and Maple Leaf Diamonds would like to congratulate mother and daughter team Caitlin and Clare for their mastery of numbers at the 2019 London Series. After winning ‘Diamond in the Deck’, they are now the proud owners of an elegant 18ct white gold diamond drop pendant valued at £2,500 thanks to the Canadian diamond experts.
Jon Pallett, Head of Marketing & Communications for the Wolfpack, spoke about the continued partnership with Maple Leaf Diamonds.
“We are extremely thankful to our highly valued partners Maple Leaf Diamonds for again wowing fans with an enthralling contest and stunning prize that showcases their amazing products.
I’m sure our Toronto native winners, Caitlin and Clare, had an experience they will never forget and a memento of the London Series that will last forever.”
As part of a Canadian celebration in the UK capital, ’Diamond in the Deck’ required players to decide if the next playing card pulled from a deck would be higher or lower than the card preceding it. In the Qualifying Rounds that took place before the action kicked off on the field, Caitlin went on a remarkable run of 14 straight correct answers that comfortably booked her spot as highest qualifier in the finals.
Taking place after the final whistle of the headlining clash between the Wolfpack and Sheffield Eagles, the finals were tense from the start. Rugby AM’s Alex Simmons hosted the deciding round in the VIP area of New River Stadium, with Caitlin and Clare getting the contest underway. They set the bar at a relatively low four correct answers but occupied the leader’s chair from the start and never relinquished it.
The four fellow finalists, Nikki, Tabitha, Barry and Sam all came close but weren’t able to match the total and Caitlin would accept the incredible prize amidst tears of joy. Final contestant Sam came agonisingly close to tying the winning score but chose lower on an eight only to see a ten revealed next. Michael Minister of Maple Leaf Diamonds was on hand to present the £2,500 pendant to the delighted winners.
It was not the only celebration on the day for home fans, with both Wolfpack and London Skolars claiming crucial victories on the field that ensured the party continued well into the evening.
