Sierra Leone’s leading sports betting and lottery company, Mercury International Company(SL) Limited has doled out Le1.2 Billion to over six thousand lucky winners from the Monday night ‘Lucky Draw’ with the popular lotto ball ‘4 44’ in the normal 5/90 lottery game .
The winning is said to have been a moment of redemption for the over six thousand Sierra Leonean lucky winners, some of whom according to report, were faced with huge economic challenge to even earn their daily survival.
Speaking after the winning draw, the Operations Manager of Mercury International, Mr. Joseph Harb stated that, as a company, they are very much pleased that people could realise such a terrific benefit out of their bet of chance with Mercury International Company SL. Ltd.
“Our main purpose among other reasons for establishing this corporate entity is to give opportunities to Sierra Leoneans to try their chances and become Millionaires through our sports betting and lottery games”, Mr. Harb reiterated.
He therefore encouraged their valued customers to continue playing the different lottery games including the 4/50 Jackpot which has now got its highest amount of over Le180, 000,000 for just Le2000 to become a lucky winner. He also called on those that have not been playing to try their luck, and become lucky winners.
One of the lucky winners, Mrs. Fatmata Kamara of Congo Market expressed delight over what she described as a big opportunity for her to increase on her business capital as a petty trader. “I have always played Mercury and will continue to play as it is my major source of income to support the education of my children who are at secondary school level”, she boasted.
Another lucky winner, Mr. Ibrahim Tarawally whose place of work remains undisclosed, has also vowed to win the 4/50 Jackpot. “I will be the third winner of the 4/50 Jackpot with the highest amount so far”, Mr. Tarawally said.
The 4/50 Jackpot has become the most anticipated and attractive lottery game with a minimal sum of just Le2000 to bank Le186, 100,000.
