New Delhi [India], Oct.24 (ANI): eBay India will celebrate its 'Loudest Diwali Ever' by hosting the first ever Facebook live gaming event for its consumers called Dhanbola (online tambola).

Hosted by India's best stand-up comedian Zakir Khan, Dhanbola will be live on October 25, from 4:00-5:00 pm on eBay India FB page.

Over 5.6 million consumers on ebay.in will get codes that will entitle them to participate in live Dhanbola event and stand a chance to win a MacBook Pro, an Apple iPhone 7 or a Philips Bluetooth speaker.

Dhanbola is also an opportunity for eBay India to reinforce its TVC campaign #ThingsDontJudge, as Khan will be hosting his Diwali party on the fb page of eBay India.

Commenting on this initiative, Shivani Suri, Director Marketing, eBay India said "Our recently launched TVC campaign #ThingsDontJudge struck a chord with consumers from different walks of life. Dhanbola is yet another industry first from eBay India to not only deepen our engagement with consumers on a platform which is preferred by them but also to celebrate the spirit of the upcoming festivities."

Apart from ' Dhanbola', eBay shoppers will be given a chance to engage with the stand-up comedian through several additional activities. Consumers can challenge the host for either a 'Truth or Dare', and/or a real time "Roast the Host."

eBay offers consumers the option to make purchases via EMI through ICICI, Citibank and HDFC credit cards. All purchases are covered under the eBay Guarantee which ensures refund or replacement in case a consumer is unhappy with the purchase. (ANI)
