2 Grenadians Win Big At Super 6 In 2022”

PR – 51-year-old Aubrey Springle, a self-employed agro-processor and father of 3, of Glebe Street, Sauteurs in St Patrick, ended the year more financially abled after collecting the Super 6 Jackpot of EC$610,000 which he won exactly 3 months before on Friday, 30th September 2022.

Mr. Springle’s winning came just over 4 months after Ms. Marcian Lewis of L’Anse Aux Épines had won EC$1,250,000 in the same game which marked the biggest Super 6 Jackpot ever won by a Grenadian and the 2nd biggest super 6 Jackpot ever won within the Windward Islands.

On the tenth day before Mr. Springle’s 90-day prize redemption limit was set to expire, the much-awaited winner walked into the National Lottery Authority’s (N.L.A.) Main Office on the Carenage in St. George’s and presented his ID and his signed winning ticket which was bought at Shevon’s Department Store – a lottery agent that is located on the same street that Mr. Springle resides.  With expediency, the ticket was processed internally, validated by Canadian Bank Note (CBN) – the lottery management company servicing the WinLott Islands, then the cheque was generated and signed – all on the same day.

The handover ceremony was conducted at the parking lot of the N.L.A.’s Main Office on the Carenage.  Speaking at the activity, Mr. Springle shared that his preferred jackpot-type game is Lotto but that he would indulge in the Super 6 whenever the jackpot is high.  When asked how he felt about having won, Mr. Springle said, “I have finally gotten my pension and gratuity from Lotto.  That’s how I feel.” He expressed that despite winning the lumpsum, he will continue to work his trade as normal.  Mr. Springle also advised the public that to win the game, they must play it.

The N.L.A.’s Marketing Manager – Ms. Reecè Sam described Mr. Springle’s winning as proof that Grenadians are winning the regional game, referencing Ms. Marcian Lewis’ winning as the 1st of 2 in 2022.  She analysed, “Just looking at the records from 2015 to 2022, 2 Grenadians have won each year, except 2018 where we had no winner and one in 2019.”

The N.L.A.’s Acting General Manager – Ms. Cindy Henry handed over the prize cheque to Mr. Springle who also collected the Jackpot-Seller Certificate on behalf of Shevon’s Department Store.  Ms. Henry reiterated the same-day approach to the handling and processing of Mr. Springle’s prize.  She stated that the N.L.A.  strives for integrity, executes industry best practices, and aims at improving the services through all the games and its sponsorship policy.
