ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Rondel Smith of Anegada walked away with over $6,500 in cash and prizes on Wednesday evening December 14, 2011, becoming the biggest single winner so far in the Digicel and Riteway $60,000 Christmas Cash Grab promotion, a press release from the company stated.

As the vouchers blew inside the giant inflatable Cash Vault, he snatched close to half of the total amount given away on the night – a whopping $13,490.

In its quest to include every customer on the major islands of the BVI and having already held events at Riteway locations on Tortola and Virgin Gorda, Digicel offered to pay travel and accommodation expenses for two lucky persons from Anegada and Jost Van Dyke to participate in this week’s competition, the 4th of five planned events.

As the excitement continues to build for this mega promotion, a large crowd turned up at Riteway, Road Reef to see whether they would get a chance to win thousands of dollars in cash, credit, phones and grocery vouchers. Several customers pre-qualified by topping up $15 or more, buying a phone, paying a bill in full and on time, activating a new service or shopping for $15 or more at any Riteway supermarket.

For Rondel Smith, who is a Digicel Top Up merchant, this was a super reward for partnering with Digicel over the years to help build the company’s customer base on Anegada. “I have been following the progress of Digicel since its launch in the BVI in 2008 and I really like how they try to involve everyone in their plans and promotions. So, thank you very much Digicel and I wish you continued success!”

After all of the contestants answered a round of questions put to them by host Paul “Gadiethz” Peart, Smith was the first to enter the vault and with 60 seconds to spare, he went all out grabbing and raked in $2,620 in cash, $2,020 in call credit, $1,310 in Riteway vouchers and a BlackBerry Torch smartphone valued at $800.

Other winners included Gail Orangefield and Marsha Rodney, who pulled in $2,500 worth of cash and prizes between them.

To add to the hype on the night of the event, Digicel and Riteway officials once again randomly pulled a winner who had just shopped at Riteway Road Reef and Joel Castillo was put into the vault for 30 seconds. He made good use of this opportunity by grabbing $1,650 in cash, $1,260 in Riteway vouchers and $1,510 in Digicel credit.

Since the promotion started on 18 November, lucky Digicel and Riteway customers have won over $25,000 in cash and prizes.

“Next week is the grand finale at Riteway Pasea and we are extremely excited to announce that we will be doing it bigger and better, with over $20,000 going into the vault and $2,000 going towards our charity cash grab,” Commercial Manager Su Thomas said. She is inviting everyone to get in on the action and shop at Digicel and Riteway and come out to the event next Wednesday 21 December at 6pm.

Thomas also thanked everyone for supporting the campaign so far and used the opportunity to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season and a prosperous 2012!
