'MONEY, MONEY, money!'
That's what one person who bought a ticket in Montego Bay is singing after hitting the $286 million prize in the Super Lotto jackpot.
The winner bought a $150 ticket and won the split-price amount of the jackpot with winning numbers 15, 17, 24, 30, 31 and Super Ball 03 on Tuesday night's Super Lotto Draw number 318.
That gave the bettor a prize of $171,600,000 or US$1,920,000.
Sonia Davidson, Supreme Ventures' Ltd (SVL) vice-president of group corporate communications, confirmed the parish location of the winner, but could give no further details.
After the necessary deductions in both Jamaica and participating countries, they will carry home less but, still, that's a 'decent change'.
Second Jamaican winner
This is the second time a Jamaican is winning the Super Lotto. Last year, a Manchester resident took home $232 million. That was also a $150 ticket.
"The ratio of $150 to $250 ticket purchases is pretty even. It's just the luck of the draw that both winners purchased $150 tickets," said Davidson.
"The game has been doing very well in line with our projections and we include short-term promotions to sweeten the pot. Currently, SVL has a 'Double' promotion on, where prizes (except the jackpot) are doubled. The promotion ends next Saturday.
The MoBay winner has 90 days to claim his or her prize at SVL headquarters in New Kingston. Other than the ticket, the winner also need valid identification (passport, driver's licence or current electoral voter ID).
The next starting jackpot for Super Lotto Draw number 319, today, is J$248 million.
