Grenada’s Carnival Queen – Ebony Telesford has won Digicel’s Text to Win Game.
In the promotion which started on July 1, all Digicel customers were asked to text CARNIVAL to the short code 7171 if they wanted to play the game.
The Grand Prize of $5,000 was enough to entice thousands to participate, hoping that they would walk away with the $5k cash; but there was only one winner – Ebony Telesford, who also emerged the 2014 Carnival Queen Contest winner.
Digicel “Text To Win” games are a series of monthly fun, interactive and informative games set up by the company to engage customers while providing a fair chance for all its customers to play for a prize.
When asked about winning, Ebony said, “It feels great! It’s always nice to win!”
The 2014 Carnival Queen also said that she is saving and the $5,000 will come in very handy.
“It’s very beneficial to me because I plan to start school next year and I’m looking to buy a vehicle so this will help significantly”, she added.
Ebony also took the time out to encourage everyone to take part in the games as they are fun plus you get a chance to win cash.
She also noted that her co-workers are all excited and have since been anticipating the next text to win game from Digicel.
According to Marketing Executive – Kevin Peterkin, “the mechanics of the game are very straightforward. How you enter, is by simply texting a specific keyword to the short code 7171 for a chance.
Postpaid and prepaid customers alike have a chance to win once they text.
