How to win Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto as 3rd Jamaican wins JA$186 million Prize



“Currently, we do encourage persons to check their tickets, especially when we have a jackpot winner, through various print and electronic media. We would, however, like to remind our customers that tickets purchased can be checked at any of our over 1,000 agent locations islandwide”

It’s begun to happen again.

People are afraid, it appears, to come forward to claim their Lottery Prizes. I’m speaking specifically of the Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto prize, which now appears to have yet another winner who won on Friday December 28th 2012 as stated in the article “Jamaican wins Super Lotto to take share of $311M Jackpot”, published Friday December 28, 2012 | 10:20 pm, The Jamaica Gleaner.

That person, who hails for Linstead, St. Catherine and has the honour of being the Third Jamaican to win the Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto, appears to be very coy about coming forward to collect their J$186.6 million prize as noted in the article “Super Lotto déjà vu”, published Tuesday | February 5, 2013, The Jamaica Gleaner.

This is now the Third Jamaican to be on the verge of not collecting their prize and now has ninety (90) days which ends on Thursday March 28th 2013 to collect their prize.

Again? Indeed, a Third Jamaican, it seems, is headed down this very same path.

I say again as a previous winner, the Second Jamaican to win the Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto and a native of Montego Bay, had won on Tuesday October 2nd 2012 a price totaling J$171,600,000  as reported in “$171m Super Lotto Jackpot unclaimed”, published Thursday, November 01, 2012 | 1:53 PM, The Jamaica Observer.

Based on the rules of the Game, that Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto winner had ninety (90) calendar days to collect their prize. In simple mathematical terms, this means that the Tuesday October 2nd 2012 had until Monday December 31st 2012 to collect their winnings as noted in “Super Lotto winner has month to collect prize”, published Friday | November 30, 2012 by Daviot Kelly, Staff Reporter, The Jamaica Gleaner.

They would have to make the sojourn to the Supreme Ventures Head office located on the 5th Floor of the Sagicor Building Located in New Kingston with a picture GOJ (Government of Jamaica) ID to collect their prize. Preferably wearing a very good disguise!

Otherwise, 50% reverts back to the Supreme Ventures, and 50% goes to the CHASE Fund to be used to fund Community Projects and other Local Government Initiatives. That Second Jamaican Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto winner failed to come forward and collect their prize after ninety (90) days.

Aww…to bad for you

Strictly speaking, the first such case of someone taking extraordinarily long to come forward after having won one of Supreme Ventures Limited Lottery games was that of a fifty four (54) year old Farmer Mr. S. Gayle from Manchester.  Mr. S. Gayle won the JA$240 million Supreme Ventures Limited Lotto prize, which he eventually claimed on April 1st 2010 as noted in the article “$240 million jackpot claimed”, published Thursday April 1st 2010, The Thursday Star.

I did a blog article explaining a possible reason why and made a simple suggestion: Blackberry or smartphone App or Text message Alert System for the Winner as noted in my blog article entitled Supreme Ventures and Mobile Phone Platform for gambling”.

But the first true Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto, the winner won a whopping JA$232.2 million (US$2.7 million) on Tuesday September 28th 2011AD as noted in the article “J'can hits Super Lotto jackpot!”, published Wednesday, September 28, 2011 The Jamaica Observer and the article “Super Lotto jackpot won in Jamaica”, published Thursday, September 29th, 2011, the Antigua Observer.

He too, was a late collector, as he also had (90) days to collect his prize, the end date of this time period falling on Tuesday December 26th 2011AD – Boxing Day as reported in “Super Lotto winner has 90 days to claim prize”, Published Thursday September 29, 2011, The Jamaica Gleaner. He eventually did, of course!

Again, like the last time, I also did a blog article on this obviously significant yet rare phenomenon of a Jamaican winning a seemingly impossibly difficult-to-win Lottery Game and not coming forward as chronicles in my blog article entitledSupreme Ventures Limited and the JA$232.2 million Super Lotto Winner - Pointer Sister's Automatic”.

Stats give a clearer explanation:

1st Jamaican Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto

1.      Won Super Lotto on Tuesday September 27th 2011 in Manchester
2.      The player won the split price amount of $232.2 million (US$ ) after buying a JA$150 ticket
3.      The winning numbers were 5, 11, 20, 22, 31 and Super Ball 8.

2nd Jamaican Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto

1.      Won Super Lotto on Tuesday October 2nd 2012 in Montego Bay, St. James
2.      The player won the split price amount of J$171,600,000 (US$1,920,000) after buying a JA$150 ticket
3.      The winning numbers are 15, 17, 24, 30, 31 and Super Ball 03

3rd Jamaican Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto

1.      Won Super Lotto on Friday December 28th 2012 in Linstead, St. Catherine
2.      The player won the split price amount of J$186.6 million (US$ ) after buying a JA$150 ticket
3.      The winning numbers are 01, 03, 05, 07, 16 and Super Ball 10

Clearly, all the winners are from the rural parts of Jamaica and won by playing for the split prize by buying a JA$150 Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto ticket. Mek sense; no Jamaican gonna spend JA$250 to buy a Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto ticket when playing for split prize at least guarantees over JA$20 million or Pick 4 is way easier to win

Not to mention a money maker for Supreme Ventures Limited as noted in “Pick 4 winnings hit J$1.4 billion in payouts”, published Sunday | December 23, 2012, The Jamaica Gleaner.

In fact it’s so popular that when I go to purchase Pick 4 Tickets (research into number patterns!) I always notice in the Betting Shops, the Pick 4 Betting slips are always in short supply. Cash Pot, once the favourite, is no longer popular with consumers and is actually a loss making game for Supreme Ventures Limited as noted in “Cash Pot eats into Supreme Ventures profit”, published Wednesday | March 14, 2012, The Jamaica Gleaner.

And yes, again, as before, I suggested a Blackberry or smartphone App or Text message Alert System for the Winner, with the ability to Play Lotto Games over Wireless 3G and eventually 4G Internet as distilled in my blog article entitledSupreme Ventures and Blackberry Gambling - Rihanna S&M on the Dark Side of the Moon”. Supreme Ventures Limited has in fact embarked upon the very same thing, but apparently has since abandoned it.

Now with an apparent raft of taxes, many of which are aimed at  Supreme Ventures Limited since the coming of the NDX (National Debt Exchange) as noted in my blog article entitled Jamaican Government to implement NDX, essentially JDX2 2.0 to get IMF Agreement - Tax Reform and FDI Investments Bullet to the Head and Oblivion”,  Supreme Ventures Limited may want to revisit this idea.

Especially as MNP (Mobile Number Portability) is on the horizon and may in fact make it easier to identify minors while rolling out Mobile Gaming as noted originally in my blog article entitled Supreme Ventures and Online Gambling - The Return of the King”. Ditto to the coming of Mobile Money by April 2013 as noted in my blog article entitledBOJ to regulate and approve Mobile Money Industry in Jamaica - JCCUL JCUES is the Man of Steel as GraceKennedy joins The Last Stand for a Cashless Society”, making Mobile Payments a reality

However on a more philosophical note, the Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto winner is either afraid of extortionists as speculated in my blog article entitled Supreme Ventures and Mobile Phone Platform for gambling” or may have accidentally left his/her winning Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto  ticket (really, it’s gotta be a man!) in his back pocket, with the clothes being washed and ticket reduced to shreds.

With so many things to occupy your mind, it’s easy to forget you bought a Supreme Ventures Limited Super Lotto, ticket, muchless which numbers you played or even to know which ones won. A situation equivalent to someone giving you a bulla with you name on it and you ate it without realizing it had you name on it as explained in the article Super Lotto, not so super”, published Sunday, June 06, 2010 By Alicia Roache Sunday Finance reporter, The Jamaica Observer.

Until he/she turns up, it’s all eyes on the Supreme Ventures Limited in New Kingston like Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013) Style up until that fateful day Thursday March 28th 2013.
