Much excitement characterized the second promo draw as previous winners testified of how they emerged and won and became instant millionaires. Ifereuwem Umoeka a winner from Calabar could not contain her excitement. “ I had only 800 naira and I decided to risk my last card for the promo and so I played the weekly draw with 200 naira and the mega draw with 500 naira leaving me with only 100 naira”.
She said that she could not believe it that she won noting that it is the first time she is counting millions that she doesn’t have to pay back. “Beside the money I now also have investment that will generate more money, I am indeed very happy and thank the organisers for the transparency of the promo”, she said.
Also Daniel Ayorinde, a former bank from Ibeju Lekki Lagos said that he was reading online stories when he came across the promo and having not participated in things like that before, he was skeptical at first but when he saw that the National Lottery Regulatory Commission and the Lagos Lotteries Board endorsed it, he was sure it was real. You can now see today that it is real. “I commend the BLB promo initiators,” he said.
A legal officer at the Lagos State Lotteries Board Mrs. Adenike Oyebamiji, who witnessed the draw commended the transparent process especially as the draw is done digitally and winners are called immediately.
