RESTORE FAIRNESS TO THE NATIONAL LOTTERY

The St Lucia National Lottery games are supposed to give all players a fair chance at winning. With the recent record jackpot of over one million dollars on the line, the actions of SNL has come under fire in relation to the winning draw. On their website accessible via this link http://www.stlucialotto.com/snl/super6_rules_regs.php for the Super 6 official rules and regulations under draw times it is stated “Following the integrity checks by Auditors, the draw is conducted and recorded for broadcast later that evening. The draw will take place at a central location and be transmitted to the other three Windward Island Locations”. Hence we know that the draw is not done live as being advertised by SNL.
During the last Super 6 drawing, a player revealed the winning numbers as well as the agent where the ticket was sold long before the numbers were called. This has angered some players with some showing their disgust on social media and stating they will no longer partake in SNL games. This has not been the first time actions at SNL have come into question. In previous months, it has been alleged that funds went missing or were unaccounted for resulting in a reshuffle of the board.
We, as citizens of St Lucia, Dominica, Grenada and St Vincent and as players of Super 6 are shocked to know that the manner in which draws are conducted can result in the winning numbers being leaked. We believe that the lottery agency can defraud us or has been defrauding us over the years. The rules should encourage us players and not discourage us.
In light of this recent public outcry, we demand that fairness be restored to the National Lottery and the rules be revised. In addition, we find it unfair that the prize allocation for 4 and 5 numbers of the winning pool be of higher value. With the recent changes to the Super 6 prize showing rapid increases as opposed to previous years, we believe increases should be shared among 4 and 5 winning numbers as well. We call for an investigation to be done in regards to the operations of SNL and a statement needs to be released addressing this recent mix-up.
Our recommended revisions are as follows:
• Super 6 draw should be done after the cut off time for purchasing tickets
• The prize money should be distributed more evenly example 4 numbers could be given over $1000 instead of the $34, 5 numbers over $5000 instead of the mere hundreds allocated.
• A live viewing of random draws by the public at the draw location after the machine is closed for ticket purchase
