K100,000 up for grabs for Digicel users

This promotion starts today and runs for four weeks,  giving users the opportunity to win K100,000 or K1000 by a simple top up of credits.

The public can enter the draw by topping up with either a K3.30 or K5.50 flex card introduced to the market specifically for this promotion.

Digicel’s head of consumer Khattar Fehmi confirmed that other recharge cards or top up methods do not qualify as this gives the opportunity to flex cards users, mainly in rural areas, to be involved.
