“She is still in disbelief,” stated Attorney-at-Law Mr. Andrew Willoughby on behalf of his client and newest Mega 6 Jackpot winner.
He was speaking during the Barbados Lottery press conference & cheque presentation held at the Barbados Lottery office on Friday. With just a single $2 Mega 6 ticket purchase, the winner collected her cheque for BD$2,470,000.
This shy female in her 40s purchased the winning ticket from the Reddy Kilowatt Co-Op Society, Garrison, St. Michael on Thursday, August 16, 2018. Her attorney pointed out that she has never won before and is “very elated”, as she plays less than twice per week and prefers the Mega 6 and Super Lotto games.
The choice of randomly picked numbers worked out in her favour and she plans on using her winnings to pay bills, outstanding debts and for investments.
Tickets for the Mega 6 game are $2 each and are sold at the Barbados Lottery retail store and various retailers island-wide.
Mega 6 draws are held four times a week, live, on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.
