Goodwill man wins over $100,000 jackpot

 

The winner said he feels ‘brand new’ again

Kirston Joseph of Goodwill said he feels ‘brand new’ after winning $120,500 in the Dominica National Lotteries Super Six jackpot.

The 28-year-oldAuto Body technician is the second super six winner for 2017.

Just last month Gavin Laville, 37, from the community of Castle Bruce won four hundred and thirty thousand dollars, the largest payout in the super six game since its inception.

“I feel brand new again…I feel I can do what I need to do now for my family, and my kids, and my mother,” Joseph said.

He also urged lotto players to continue playing the games at the Dominica Lotteries Commission.

Meantime Sales and Marketing Manager at Dominica National Lotteries Ken George said the company has paid off over 1 million dollars to winners for the first quarter of 2017.

“Well, I must make mention that for the first quarter of 2017 that we at the National Lottery have paid over 1 million dollars to winners…So that again indicates how well that the National Lottery is supporting the economy, supporting the sports, and we are urging the public to support our product,” Ken stated.

The super six jackpot was $230,000 at the day of purchase however the winning was shared between both Dominica and St Lucia.

The winning ticket was purchased at S-Mart in Goodwill.

      @ Charwah
      Even peas have value. Just ask a pot of plain white rice.

    Isn’t is dangerous to BROADCAST the man’s identity like this? This is how people end up dead when you so-called media choose to disclose their business. Why could you not just refer to him as a ;Goodwill man?” Ed of story. That said, congrats sir. Hopefully you can seek a barber for a haircut. :mrgreen:

    Congrats young man. Lady Luck has dealt you a pleasant hand. Please be frugal with your money. Be cautious of the sudden influx of new friends and family members. Fakery and deceit will be in abundance around you. Tread carefully. Invest some, give some to worthy charity, and save some for a rainy day. Remember, a fool and his money are soon parted. Good luck!

    This is good news. Congratulations to you, Kirston Joseph. You must be surprised, a pleasant one and are elated. I also imagine your family’s happiness, especially your mother.
    There is no doubt you are envied. :lol: It appears you have some primary, excellent plans on how to make use of it, helping your family.
    Imagine not having to be too concerned about where the money is coming from to purchase some sort of necessity. This is the joy of winning a lottery.
    Money comes, money goes. Therefore, do not forget to put some aside for rainy days, as we say.
    Keep in mind, the saying, “Friends are plenty when the purse is full.” As the proverb, “Penny wise pound foolish.” Be wise in spending it.
    If I were you I would keep working. I hope you do.
    Most of all, thank God for nothing occurs without reasons.
    God bless you Kirston, to spend your money wisely. God also bless your family.

      Why should he stop working?

      $100,000 these days is chump change. By the time he pay off bills and give a little something to his momma and child mother, that done.

    I wonder how much he spent on lottery tickets?

    There is a culture of gambling in Dominica where people are actually putting themselves in grave financial difficulties just to play in the hopes of winning.
