A $2 Mega-6 quick pick has resulted in an unidentified St George man becoming Barbados’ latest millionaire.
The $1.32 million cheque was picked up yesterday by friend Jason Prescod, who was accompanied by family members, at the Barbados Lottery Independence Square office in The City.
Prescod said his friend wanted to “settle his head” first before making any plans for the money. He said his friend was in the late 20s, was only an occasional lotto player and was going through tough times, so the money was “very much needed”.
Roger Clarke, the advertising agent for the Barbados Lottery, said it was the third big win for a Barbadian for the year, beginning with Philip Field, who won $8.56 million on February 11 in the Super Lotto, and Maureen King, who claimed $2.78 million on April 13 in the Mega-6 draw. (CA)
