The wait is almost over! Next week, one Digicel customer will soon find out they are the lucky winner of a piece of land in Digicel’s “Win A Piece of Paradise and Smile” promotion.

After 10 weeks of waiting, thousands of entries and 10 weekly winners of Samsung prizes, the time has finally come for the grand prize winner of a plot of land in the parish of St. Philip to be selected. On Monday, February 11, the date of Digicel’s 9th Anniversary, the long-awaited announcement will be made, bringing an end to the promotion which began on December 1, 2012.

In the lead up to this highly anticipated moment, the final two weekly winners of Samsung prizes were drawn, with Deborah Hunte of Arthur’s Seat being the week 9 winner of a Samsung Laptop and Roger Thompson of Melvin Hill, St. Joseph taking home a brand new Samsung 40 inch LCD TV as the 10th and final weekly winner.

When informed, Ms. Hunte’s disbelief quickly turned into uncontrolled excitement: “Despite the number of times I asked if it was a prank and was told it certainly was not, I found it very hard to believe. I have never won anything so this is very new to me and I’m so excited. Thanks for making this an amazing start to the year, Digicel.

Mr. Thompson, who indicated that this was also his first time winning anything in his life said it now feels like his luck has changed: “When you’re accustomed to not even coming close to winning for all of your life you start not to pay attention anymore, but this has certainly changed now. To go from not winning anything to taking home this lovely TV, that’s incredible. Digicel is definitely the best!”

Marketing Executive with Digicel (Barbados) Limited, Randy Howard, made the point that the majority of winners during the promotion were indeed first timers: “Of the 10 winners, eight were first timers, having not won anything before, either from Digicel or otherwise, so we are happy to be responsible for changing their luck. All of our customers should look at this as encouragement and realize that with Digicel you can indeed be a winner. We make it easy for you, in most cases making entry into our promotions automatic through topping up, paying your bill and sending text messages. I want to congratulate each of the 10 weekly winners and look forward to seeing the broad smile on the face of our grand prize winner.
