4 October 2019

Manulife launches The Manulife Vault game and a $250K retirement plan is up for grabs. A first in Singapore.

Nobody ever said planning for retirement is fun. Especially not young people. Until now.

Forget just planning for retirement. With the launch of the Manulife Vault game for the month of October, Manulife wants you to start by playing for retirement instead!

In a disruptive bold move, Manulife launches a digital gamification contest via on 4 October that gives away a free retirement plan.

Rewarding with a never-before prize, the campaign, “Manulife Vault Game”, is an intentional step away from the ‘gloom and doom’ approach to insurance, instead engaging customers to get their game on for one month and unlock a Manulife retirement plan worth up to $250,000. 

“We know that everyone wants to retire one day but very few young people have a plan in place.  Some think that they still have a long way to go, while others don’t know where and how to start planning. But one thing we know is that everyone enjoys playing to win. With the Manulife Vault Game, we hope to trigger the competitive nature of people in Singapore, to encourage them to play, plan to accumulate, and to eventually win big. We want to gain the attention of young consumers and drive home a very important point - that you need a game plan for retirement. The earlier you start, the better the chances of winning,” said Kwek-Perroy Li Choo, Chief Customer Officer of Manulife Singapore. 

Unlock the Manulife Vault Game 

The Manulife Vault Game is a digital challenge accessible via

Played across three difficulty levels of vaults, it is a simple game where players repeat from memory a sequence of lighted buttons displayed randomly. To win, you have 10 seconds to repeat the right sequence in order to unlock the vault and collect the virtual currency - Manulife Dollars.

Running from 4 October till 31 October, simply sign up, log in and start tapping to solve the memory sequence for a chance to win the grand prize. 


  • Log in to each day to make use of five daily chances to unlock the vaults.
  • Click on Level 1 and wait for the game to load, displaying a grid of boxes.
  • At each level, challenge yourself to a memory game where the boxes light up in a particular sequence. After viewing it once, it’s your turn to follow the same sequence of lighted square boxes.
  • There are 3 levels in total with the difficulty increasing with each level. The more vaults you unlock accurately in the fastest time, the more Manulife Dollars you accumulate each day.
  • Warning: Failure to repeat the exact sequence will result in a 10% loss of the accumulated Manulife Dollars. 


A Weekend Challenge is activated between Saturday 9am till Sunday 11.59pm across the three campaign weekends in October. The top 10 players who unlock the vaults with the fastest timings will be selected to win attractive prizes worth up to S$1,000.

The Finale - On 9 November, the top 32 players with the highest accumulated Manulife Dollars through the month-long game will be invited to compete in the Grand Finale playoffs at Jewel Changi Airport!

The top three winners will be awarded with amazing prizes and the overall champion wins the coveted Manulife RetireReady Plus worth up to S$250,000, in total monthly accumulated retirement income.

Besides social media postings on Facebook and Instagram, the month-long campaign is also supported by display and social ads, influencer engagement, content strategy and bus-stop shelter ads to engage with consumers through different ways.
