Cirrus System Inc., the international automated-teller network, said that its "World of Cash" sweepstakes sparked record transaction volume.

During the "World of Cash" sweepstakes, which ran from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30, Cirrus said credit and ATM debit transactions rose 31% over the corresponding period of 1992.

"This performance exceeds the 26% annual increase we experienced in total transaction volume during 1993, and indicates how well our members promoted the sweepstakes to their staff and consumers," said Daniel Bauer, senior vice president of marketing for Cirrus.

Cirrus announced the winners of the sweepstakes on April 22.
