RUDOPLH SHEPHERD IS $20,000 RICHER THANKS TO THE DIGICEL FUGITIVE
After nabbing the final Digicel Fugitive on Saturday, March 29 for the season ending jackpot of Bds$13,2000, 63-year old Rudolph Shepherd is now over $20,000 richer thanks to the popular bounty hunter game.
A 5-time winner for this installment of the game, which began on February 11th, the date of Digicel’s 10th anniversary, Mr. Shepherd had been hot on the trails of the Fugitive for the last seven weeks, and credits his success to the use of Digicel’s network and advanced text clue system.
“Once I knew the Fugitive was starting back I made sure to sign up for the early clues. If you really wanted to win it just made sense to get the clues 15 minutes early, so I’m glad Digicel gave me that option. It’s a small investment for great gain. Also, if I got stumped when I first got the clues I used to go on Google on my phone and try to figure it out. This helped me a number of times and even if I wasn’t able to go and look for them, I could still text in the answer and maybe win a hundred dollars. So with the new technology on phones now, anybody with a phone that can surf the web stood an even better chance”
Commercial Director of Digicel (Barbados) Limited, Alex Tasker, commented on Mr. Shepherd’s enthusiasm and persistence:
“I’m glad our services were able to help Mr. Shepherd catch the fugitive as many times as he did. I think it’s a great lesson for those out there who didn’t sign up for the early text clues to do so in the future, as we all know that every second counts and in this case counts a lot. I’d like to thank everyone who participated this year, helping to celebrate our 10th anniversary here in Barbados, and we look forward to other successful hunts for the Digicel fugitive in years to come.”
Also, taking home some well-deserved cash for the finale on March 29 was Kimberly Roach, who won the final text prize of $1,000.
