First time winner hits the 'Spot 7' with The Barbados Lottery Double Draw

Bridgetown, Barbados – September 25, 2020: Vonda Jessamy is celebrating her Jackpot windfall following the purchase of her winning Double Draw ‘Spot 7’ ticket from The Barbados Lottery Retail Agent at Café Plus in Kensington Mall, St. Michael.

Mrs. Jessamy recently collected her cheque for BDS $415,903.00 at The Barbados Lottery Independence Square Retail Office and happily confirmed: “I feel great.”

As a regular Double Draw player since the start of the game in 1995,  Mrs. Jessamy randomly chose her numbers 06, 16, 17, 19, 23, 25, 28 for Draw # 25688, but had no idea that she would win and even moreso win this big.  She does however plan to use her winnings to pay some bills and most importantly invest wisely.  

Shelly Ann Hee Chung, Site Manager at The Barbados Lottery, congratulated the newest Double Draw ‘Spot 7’ Jackpot winner and noted that: “We are delighted to hear that Mrs. Jessamy is truly a dedicated Double Draw player who has been playing the game for over 25 years!

In 2019, The Barbados Lottery paid over $37 million to Double Draw winners.

Mrs. Jessamy has also indicated that she will continue to play Double Draw for many more years as it is her favourite game.  Her advice to other Barbados Lottery players remains: “Keep playing. Don’t give up!”

Proceeds from The Barbados Lottery games, including Double Draw, support the many sports, youth and cultural programmes provided by beneficiaries: The Barbados Cricket Association, The Barbados Turf Club, The Barbados Olympic Association and National Sports Council.
