After drawing more than 10 million entries from customers all over the country, the winning number randomly selected from the automated draw was for a lucky entrant from Wewak.
Glenda Supring is a mother-of-four and runs a small stationary business in Wewak town.
Digicel Chief Operations Officer, Colin Stone, drew her number today in an automated draw, where he proceeded to call her up.
Speaking from Wewak, an excited Supring said though she had entered competitions, she hardly ever won anything…until today.
“I had to put the phone on the table to see the number on the screen, because my first thought was that it was a scam, and when Colin introduced himself, I was jumping up and down with excitement because I knew it wasn’t a scam,” she stated.
She and her husband have been in need of a new vehicle for a long time and she said that this prize will assist her greatly towards buying a new vehicle for her family.
Stone congratulated her as well as the daily K1,000 winners, thanking all Digicel customers who have participated in their Christmas promotion.
All entries drawn were from customers who have either purchased a Wowi or a Dtok 4G LTE smartphone, or a Wowi 3G smartphone.
This includes customers who have spent K4 or more on their mobile phones, as well as those who have purchased a Postpaid or TV plan during the promotional period.
Since the launch of the promotion in early November, Digicel has been doing daily draws from which K1,000 was awarded daily to lucky winners nationwide while 200 product prizes of Voice, SMS, Data & TV plans were also given away to customers.
With the cash and product prize giveaways now concluded, Digicel still has available Christmas offers on selected smartphones where customers can surf, download and use social media for free upon purchase.
