He said: “Taking home the Le 230,400,000 will not only make the lucky winner the highest lottery winner ever in the history of Sierra Leone, but he will also be a life time millionaire.”
As the price at stake continues to increase, the Sports Betting and Lottery Company’s PRO urged all Sierra Leoneans, especially their valued customers, to increase their chances of winning, thereby changing their lives.
Since it was last won on Tuesday 18th October by one Abubakar Kamara at a prize of Fifty Seven Million One Hundred and Fifty Thousand Two Hundred Leones (Le 57,150,200), the draw has steadily increased to what has been described as the highest price ever in the country’s jackpot history.
The 4/50 Jackpot which was lunched on 3rd March 2016 at the Family Kingdom, Aberdeen in Freetown, have already created over six millionaires with Mrs. Betty Hooks, a middle aged woman, becoming the first female winner of the jackpot.
Mrs. Hooks still remains the highest winner of the jackpot after winning the Le 208 million prices. Other winners include a ‘tabaka’ seller named Ibrahim Sorie, who won the sum of one hundred and twenty-two million Leones (122,000,000) on 18th April.
In August also, one Martin Bangura from Lungi became the 4th winner of the Jackpot after winning one hundred and thirty three million Leones (Le 133,000,000).
Players of the 4/50 Jackpot must pick 4 numbers between 1-50 and the players must match 4 numbers on the draw to win the Jackpot. Players can also win sixteen thousand Leones (Le16, 000.00) for matching 2 numbers and three hundred and sixty thousand Leones (Le360, 000.00) for matching 3 numbers on the draw.
According to Komba, the 2 or 3 numbers are consolation and those who fall on those categories will receive their money immediately as the money giving to them does not come from the Jackpot price money but separately.
