J'can hits Super Lotto jackpot!
A lucky Jamaican last night won $232.2 million in Supreme Ventures' Super Lotto, the company revealed in a news release.
According to the company, the Super Lotto jackpot was $387 million. However, the winning ticket was bought at $150 — the split price purchase — resulting in the lone winner claiming just over $230 million.
"One lucky person found the right combination of the five Super Lotto plus one Super Ball numbers, to win the jackpot," Supreme Ventures said. The winning numbers were 5, 11, 20, 22, 31 and the Super Ball was 8.
"The live draw was held in the Dominican Republic, while the delayed broadcast was shown on CVM-TV at 9:30 pm.
The company said the lucky winner will be required to claim his/her prize in Jamaica at the Supreme Ventures Corporate Office, adding that it would provide information on the winner as soon as the prize is claimed.
Supreme Ventures started selling tickets on August 25, 2009 for the Super Lotto multi-jurisdictional game, the first game of its kind in the Caribbean and Latin America. The participating territories are the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Barbados, St Kitts & Nevis, Anguilla, Antigua, St Maarten and the US Virgin Islands.
