The Al Danah account prize of One Million KD was named the ‘largest bank prize linked to a bank account prize in the world’.  Gulf Bank solidly beat out the previous record and still holds this title for this year. In honor of this well respected and esteemed international recognition, the Bank showcased its custom Guinness World Records books.
