Supreme Ventures Limited (SVL) is pleased to announce that Maria Almonte claimed the prize in St. Maarten today. Maria hit the Super Lotto Jackpot for draw #656 on January 22, 2016. The Super Lotto Jackpot was J$260M or the US equivalent of $2.17M.

The winning numbers were: 04, 11, 19, 21, 28 and Super Ball 04 captured on a lucky ticket with numbers selected by Maria, who resides in Cole Bay, St. Maarten. The winning ticket was purchased from Tackling Shell.

The presentation ceremony held today in St. Maarten was attended by Anthony Jackson – Draw Manager of Supreme Ventures Limited and Laurie Wiggan – Director Compliance & Regulatory Division at the Betting Gaming & Lotteries Commission.

Maria, the first female Super Lotto jackpot winner, did not select her winning numbers by chance, but because they held great sentimental value. She explains, “I play the same numbers all the time and each number represents birthdays of persons close to me. My mom is represented by 04, my fiancé by 11, my two children by 19 and 21, and my birthday is 28.”

This win is a special one for Maria who has mixed feelings about her windfall. “I am excited, happy, and, at the same time, sad. I am sad because my dad was an avid Lotto player and he never won, and now that I have won this huge jackpot, he is not here to share this special moment with me,” she said.

SVL started selling tickets on August 25, 2009 for the Super Lotto multi-jurisdictional game, which is the first game of its kind in the Caribbean and Latin America. The participating territories are: Jamaica, Barbados, St. Kitts & Nevis, Anguilla, Antigua, St. Maarten, the US Virgin Islands and Paraguay. In addition to St. Maarten, the game has so far produced winners in Jamaica and Barbados respectively.
