“Digicel is the gift that keeps on giving and giving and giving”, said Polius, who added, “this Christmas you are going to see value and excitement that you have never seen before; this Christmas we are going to introduce to St. Vincent and the Grenadines the Digicel wheel-a-deal, which is going to allow you to win up to EC$250,000 in cash and prizes”.

Polius added that all persons have to do is top up EC$15 or more, pay your post paid bill in full and on time, or join the Bigger Better Network for a chance to win great prizes.

Meanwhile, hundreds of Vincentians who gathered at Heritage Square last Friday were not disappointed, as a number of them walked away with among other things, free credit compliments Digicel, household appliances from Singer and drinks compliments the St. Vincent Brewery Ltd. Those who didn’t win anything had just as much fun, as entertainment was in the form of Gamal’ Skinny Fabulous’ Doyle and Disc Jockey ‘2 Kool Chris’ from Hot 97.1 FM. Masters of Ceremonies were Digicel’s Public Relations Officer (PRO) OECS Jerry George and Comedian Maurice Horne.

During the launch, persons were given the opportunity to spin Digicel’s wheel-a-deal.

Skinny Fabulous also gave away cases of Hairoun products to persons who competed in made up games, which included opening three malt bottles in less than a minute without an opener and balancing bottles on top of one another.
