Hitting the jackpot is enough to change anyone’s life forever and it looks like lightning has struck for Francis Pwualua.
On January 17, the cleaner and resident of Nayania, a suburb of Navrongo in the Upper East Region, won an NLA jackpot of ¢126,000.
The National Lottery Authority (NLA) said that he won a ¢126,000 in its new Jackpot game called Daywa 5/39 launched on November 26th 2019.
Pwauala placed his lotto ticket via the shortcode *446# with lucky numbers 15, 18, 17, 20, 16 at the National Lottery Authority’s new jackpot game – Daywa 5/39.
He won the ultimate prize at a cost of only ¢2 with his five selected numbers matching exactly the same figures drawn at the NLA’s Brennan Hall at 7 pm. This makes him the first winner of this exciting new game.
This comes as an excitement after the Jackpot prize grew from a minimum amount of GHS 100,000 over just seven weeks to GHS 126,000, during which tens of thousands of Ghanaians tried to this daily Jackpot game.
The thrilling aspect of Daywa 5/39 Jackpot game is that, once the Jackpot prize is won, it resets to the minimum amount of GHS 100,000 and grows until it’s won again.
Aside playable on the *446# short code, it is NLA’s first ever lotto game that can also be played online and on a Mobile App.
