When the Price is Right! It’s a $601,800 Spot 7 win with Double Draw and Barbados Lottery
Amanda Price is still reeling from the shock and surprise of being the first Spot 7 winner for 2022, with a whopping $601,800 Double Draw win with The Barbados Lottery.
As a regular player of The Barbados Lottery’s games for over ten years, Price stated that she plays just over two to three times a week and, in keeping with her father’s strategy, chooses her numbers from the birth dates of family members. This approach proved to be the winning formula and she has big plans for her winnings: “I wanted to purchase a house, so this will be a very good start for me…I will be helping my mum renovate her home…invest in my daughter’s education, have enough money to complete my master’s as well and any future investments I can grow.”
Mrs. Shelly Ann Hee Chung, Country Manager for IGT Antilles operations (The Barbados Lottery & Caribbean Lottery), congratulated Ms. Price on her win of a lifetime: “Our team at The Barbados Lottery is pleased about Ms. Price’s $601,800 Spot 7 win with our Double Draw game, especially as our first Spot 7 winner for the year. It is heartening to learn that she will be fulfilling her dream for home purchase, assisting her mother and educational pursuits for herself and her daughter. We wish her the very best for the future.”
When asked if she intends to keep playing, Price exclaimed, “Yes I will!” She also reminded other players to, “Keep trying, don’t give up.”
Double Draw remains one of the major brands in The Barbados Lottery’s game portfolio, with its proceeds providing financial support to the Lottery’s beneficiaries: The Barbados Olympic Association, The Barbados Turf Club, The Barbados Cricket Association and The National Sports Club Council and their sports, youth and cultural activities across Barbados.
