As luck would have it, Williams entered the ‘18 Gs for Christmas “Threes Promotions” on the last draw of eligibility (December 21st) and she had only one entry in the draw.

She said she was surprised to hear that she had won the first prize, and plans to put the money towards the house she is building.

Samuel, a frequent supporter of National Lottery’s games, indicated that the cash has come at a very useful time.

The Enhams resident said that she intends to make the most of it.

Product Development Manager at the NLA Anthony Dennie indicated that a number of new promotions are in the works, hinting at major events for the Grenadines, Easter and Carnival.

Dennie expressed gratitude to the general public for assisting in the development of sports and culture by playing the various games. (JJ)
