The lucky winner was the 22-year-old student, Jo Smith and as you can see in the clip above, she pushed the button that sank the F69 on November 13th 2005 in front of an estimated spectator audience of over 100,00 on land, and over 220 vessels on the water.

This campaign also went on to become the biggest TXT game event in NZ’s history - I'm not in the least bit suprised I'd play to get a chance to blow up a ship, wouldn't you? End results; over 90,000 registered players - in an 8 day sign-up period and 2.5 million text messages sent from players to the game. Impressive!
