History of Caribbean Super Lotto
The history of lotteries is so old that archeologists have even found evidence of lottery style games dating back to the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt. There was even a gambling game played more than three thousand years ago, to fund the building of the Great Wall in China. The first evidence of prize money offered in a lottery was in Florence, Italy, in 1530. England followed the example, and in 1612 lotteries also arrived in America. The funds from early US lotteries helped fund the army in the fight for independence from the British. The first lottery in America in modern times was started in New Hampshire in 1964.
Today many jurisdictions in the United States run lotteries, and they have become an important part of each state’s revenues. They provide thousands of jobs in America, and people who play the lotteries are estimated to be about eighty percent of America’s population.
The Caribbean Super Lotto is a multi jurisdictional jackpot game, the first of its kind in the Caribbean and Latin America, and was launched in 2009 by Supreme Ventures Limited. Caribbean Super Lotto tickets are sold simultaneously in all the Caribbean countries, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Barbados, St Kitts & Nevis, Antigua, Anguilla, and St Maarten. The US Virgin Islands, a member country of the Leewards Islands Lottery Company launched the Super Lotto in 2010, and Paraguay joined the jurisdictions in 2014. The Caribbean Super Lotto is modeled on the Powerball games held all over the world, including the big Powerball lottery in America.
Player choose five numbers from one group of 35 numbers, and one number from a different group of 10 numbers. Winning numbers are drawn twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Fridays. The main jackpot prize in the Caribbean Super Lotto is usually over 5 million dollars.
Most Caribbean Countries Enjoy Playing a Lottery
Many of the countries of the Caribbean have lotteries. Jamaica has a lottery with a very big jackpot, and many online lotteries are based in Curacao. Due to religious opposition the Cayman Islands and Bahamas do not have a national lottery, but even the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, Haiti, has a lottery.
Lottery numbers in all lotteries, as with the Caribbean Super Lotto, are always drawn in a random manner, but there are some people who believe that they can discern a pattern in the winning numbers, and that they know how to predict the winning jackpot numbers. It is advisable for players to be a little wary of such people.
