Curtanya Allen, who recently tied the knot, will get her cellular bills paid by Digicel for an entire year.

The Reading, St James customer was among nine winners in the first set of weekly draws in the company's 'Your Christmas, Our Mission' promotion.

"I just got married and, as a new couple, there are certain things we would like to take care of financially," said Allen, as she collected her prize at Digicel's headquarters in downtown Kingston earlier this week.

The other eight winners walked away with DL750 smartphones and free one-month data plans. To date, over 3,000 customers have also won instant prizes each time they spell the word 'MISSION'.

"We have lots more surprises in store, so we are encouraging customers to keep topping up and keep spelling the word MISSION," said Annalise Harewood, Digicel's head of recharge.

The promotion, which continues until January 1, 2015, will see a total of over 200,000 customers winning from a prize pool of $60m. Three customers, one from each county, will each win a million dollars in the grand prize draw.
