Western Lotto Nigeria Limited has raised the stakes in the gaming business in Nigeria with the introduction of Powerball Max, one of the latest games in its franchise. Powerball Max, a US lottery, offers winnings of up to N14b ($26,000,000.00).
The Managing Director of Western Lotto Nigeria Limited, Mr. Yomi Ogunfowora, said gamers on the platform could tap into any of the nine ways to win prizes, adding that his gaming and entertainment company added the Powerball Max to its bouquet to bring world-class entertainment to Nigerians.
According to him, the frontline gaming platform allows Nigerians the opportunity to play and win millions of dollars offered by other renowned games like Mega Millions, Euro Millions, Euro Jackpot and the UK Lotto.
“For someone to participate directly in these international games is a huge opportunity. Nigerians are intelligent and fun loving. Hopefully, the world will soon celebrate a jackpot winner in this country,” he said.
He also disclosed that over 18,000 gamers had won different cash prizes, including Dorcas Nwagbara, who won N15million in September 2017.
“Our platform is synonymous with winnings. We have had people win N100,000; N500,000; N1million and other mouth-watering cash prizes. Last September, a graduate of Imo State University, Dorcas Nwagbara, won N15million.
“We have many other games on our portal, including the fast-paced Lotto Race game where you win by the minutes. We are giving Nigerians a platform to better their lives,” Ogunfowora added.
Powerball is the wealthiest lottery in the world, offering a N562billion jackpot. Draws take place every Wednesday and Saturday in the US or Thursday and Sunday Nigerian time. Participation in the Powerball Max cost only N200 per game.
