Super Lotto Review

The Caribbean Super Lotto is a lottery game played in Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, St. Maarten, St. Kitts Nevis, Barbados, Jamaica, and U.S. Virgin Islands. It is therefore considered a multi-jurisdictional jackpot game. It also resembles a Powerball-type game where players choose 5 from a group of 35 numbers and an additional number from a group of 10 numbers.

Previously, the game structure was in such a way that the bonus number was drawn from a different set of 35 numbers instead of the current 10. The drawings for the Caribbean Super Lotto are held twice a week every Tuesday and Friday. Winning the first prize in Caribbean Super Lotto which starts at $5.346 million, is at odds of 1: 3,246,320.

How to Play Caribbean Super Lotto

Playing the Super Lotto is very simple because all you need is to visit an unauthorized lottery retailer from where you will get your play slip.

Every play slip has three boards or panels ranging from A to C. This allows you to play up to 3 plays on each slip, one per board. On each board, there are two sets of numbers, both sets having 1 to 35 numbers placed side by side (to the left and to the right).

If you are playing from Barbados, each play will cost you BDS $5. If you are playing from St. Kitts and Nevis, Antigua, and Barbuda, or Anguilla, you pay EC $6. Lastly, playing from St. Maarten, and U.S. Virgin Islands will cost you $2 per play.

From the first set of 35 numbers, positioned on the left side of the panel, you choose 5 numbers. Then, from the other set of numbers on the right side of the panel choose one number. When marking your selection, place a heavy vertical mark cutting through each number you have selected. The laws require that you don’t use red ink and no erasing should be done. In case you make a mistake, go to the bottom of the respective panel and mark the void box so that the whole selection in the panel can be voided.

Quick Pick and Advance Draws

If you wish to play through the Quick Pick system, check the Quick Pick box and thereafter give the play slip to the agent who will run it through the terminal which will select random numbers for you.

The Caribbean Super Lotto also allows you to participate in advance draws with the same set of numbers you have chosen. There is a multi-draw space on the payslip which you can check so that you are not left out in the subsequent draws. It is important that you crosscheck your numbers before giving the play slip to the retailer for the simple reason that printed Super Lotto tickets cannot be canceled.

The Caribbean Super Lotto has similar features to Mega Millions, EuroMillions, and Powerball in that the sales of different countries are combined to determine the prize for the jackpot. In total, it is estimated that over 19 million people have access to this lottery game.

Issuance of Ticket

Once you hand over the play slip to the retailer, he will process it and give you a ticket. The ticket will contain the date for the draw, the game that you have been entered for in this case the Caribbean Super Lotto, the serial number of the ticket, and the numbers selected. In the case of advanced draws, it will also indicate the draw dates and numbers.

Once you get your ticket, it is advisable that you countersign it at the back in order to authenticate it. This is because lotto tickets are bearer documents and anyone who picks them up can sign them and present them in claiming a prize where applicable.

It’s also advisable that you keep your ticket safe because it is the only proof that you have been entered for the draw. Any defaced, torn, or otherwise damaged ticket will either take longer to be verified in case it has won a prize or may be rejected altogether. It is therefore important that you keep your ticket safe and wait for the day.

The laws that govern the buying and selling of lottery tickets in the Caribbean do not permit buying of the Caribbean Super Lotto tickets online.

Interestingly, you can play the Caribbean lottery even if you are just visiting the Caribbean or you are a tourist there as long as you are 18 years and above.

The Odds of Winning Super Lotto

To win the Caribbean Super Lotto, it will depend with how you match the numbers drawn. Matching the 5 numbers and the bonus number wins you the jackpot, which varies depending on the ticket sales and rollovers.

The jackpot starts at $5.346 million and the odds of winning are 1: 3,246,320. There are a lot of other prizes other than the jackpot.

If you win the Caribbean Super Lotto, the contract demands that you accept publicly, although in rare exemptions winners are allowed to remain anonymous. Going public not only lifts up the integrity of the lottery, but also give other players hope and confidence that they too can make it. That said, no private details such as phone numbers or home details are shared with the public because this is part of the Identity and Privacy Protection laws.

The results for the Caribbean lottery draws are made public in the local media and at every participating Caribbean lottery retailer.

Super Lotto Prize Breakdown

If you haven’t signed your ticket at the back as yet, you should do so before claiming your prize. Remember, your ticket is the only proof that indeed you are a participant in the game and therefore losing it entitles you to no legal claim over any prize money.

Jackpots are usually paid within a week after a successful validation procedure. The reason jackpots take long is because the prize has to be collected from the different participating states and transferred to the winner or winners.

If you win the lottery and you are a tourist or visitor in the Caribbean, you can claim your prize if you are still within the country, otherwise, you will have to get in touch with the Caribbean lottery to help you organize how you will collect your prize.

If you don’t claim your prize within 90 days, it will be declared null and void. Any unclaimed prizes are used to enhance future jackpots. Prizes of more than $750,000 should be claimed from the Central Lottery office with the player having a valid ID and a completed Caribbean Lottery winner claim form.
