In celebration of their seventh anniversary, SMART started a grand anniversary raffle that culminated on the twenty-ninth of last month.

After three months of raffle entries, the lucky winner, thirty-nine year old Jason Staine of Belize City was selected. News Five got the reaction from Staine.

“We did the raffle on March 29th, our anniversary, and the lucky winner was Mr. Jason Staine and he is here from Belize City. This is something that we did electronically; it’s an automated raffle which shuffles all the tickets that were entered into the raffle. We had over four hundred and twelve thousand tickets entered; our customers could’ve participated either by sending texts to UWIN to get a chance for the raffle or for every five dollars usage they got a ticket also to enter to the raffle. So it was something over the three months. Our customers had ample time to participate and of course there could only be one winner and Mr. Jason is the winner of this grand prize.”
