Lotto jackpot hit in St Mary
St Mary has long been labelled as one of Jamaica's poorest parishes but it appears that one of its natives has become a multi-millionaire overnight.
Supreme Ventures said that the winning ticket for Saturday's $277m Lotto jackpot was purchased at Snoopy's Wholesale and Gaming in Belfield, St Mary.
It is the largest jackpot in two years. The winning numbers were 03, 11, 18, 21, 29, 32. The bonus ball was 37.
"We are beyond pleased that someone has captured such a huge Lotto jackpot! This is the third time in Lotto history that the jackpot is over $200 million. This is a life changing win and we are ready to welcome them into the Millionaire's Club as soon as they come forward with their ticket," Gail Abrahams, vice-president, marketing, communication & sponsorship at Supreme Ventures, said.
The Lotto winner will have 90 days to come forward with the winning ticket in order to begin the process to claim their multimillion-dollar jackpot.
