$10 000-winning grandpa wants more!

Written by Thursday, 23 August 2018 00:00;
63-year-old bus driver, Emmanuel Kakweza, has won $10 000 after scratching a $1 Strike and Win card which is amongst the array of scratch card products offered by Africa Lotto. Mr. Kakweza says he is encouraged to keep trying his luck for a much bigger jackpot. “I will also stop when I win this,” Glen View resident Kakweza said, pointing to a promotional banner in the Karigamombe branch, which showed a previous lucky punter winning $200 000. “I also want that $200 000 now. Then I can stop.” This is by miles the biggest pay cheque won by Kakweza since he started playing the scratch-card two years ago. “Before it was $5, $10, and perhaps the odd $100 winnings. I’m over the moon, son, and I owe Africa Lotto a huge amount of gratitude.” The father of eight and grandfather to several grandchildren has been a gambler since his youthful days, but he says he is pretty new to the Africa Lotto scratch-card, which he reckons is much more winnable. “This one is easier than yekunyora iya. I encourage fellow punters to put their money on this one.” Kakweza’s win was from a stake of a dollar, and he says he sent one of his younger sons to buy the winning scratch-card. “I called my best friend and fellow punter Promise Maziwisa after I won, and he obviously is extremely happy for me. I just haven’t decided on how to use the money, I will sit down with my family and plan. But being a driver, I think I will invest in the transport business.”

Eight tips to help you win the lottery

Written by Wednesday, 13 December 2017 00:00;
If you want to boost your chance of winning the lottery, here are the nine helpful tips to increase your winnings. 1. To increase your probability of winning, you need to buy more tickets. But the downside of this is that you may need to spend lots of money to win a price. The worth of your winnings may not be fully compensated because of the high investment you put in buying tickets. This was proven by an Australian firm who try this trick in a local lottery. But then again, buying more lottery ticket may help improve your chances of winning. 2. Form a lottery syndicate where you gather money from lottery players. This means you get more tickets and lottery numbers which means you will all have better chance of hitting the jackpot. The downside is, you may have to share the jackpot price with many people. But maybe, you will not complain if your group won $500 million dollar and you have to divide it between 10 winners! If you don’t want to spend a fortune, playing a lottery syndicate will increase your odds of winning. 3. Don’t choose consecutive numbers. For example, if you play a lottery with five winning numbers and you have to choose until numbers 55. The total numbers must be between 104 and 176. Studies have shown that 70% of lottery jackpots have sums that fall in this range. 4. Don’t choose a number that falls in the same number group or ending with a similar digit. Although, there is a possibility that you may win, but the probability is very low. 5. Look for more unpopular games played at odd times. Don’t go for lottery games that always have a winner try to explore other unpopular games. Most likely, people will all go to that lottery game, so your chance of winning is lesser. Go to the less popular, with lesser game player, so your odd of winning is higher. Better if you will play less popular lottery games with fewer players, so you will have less competition. 6. Some people tend to play lotto based from the numbers of their birthday, or the birthday of a family member. If this happens, you will usually get more numbers from 1 to 31, as this corresponds to the days in the calendar method. If you choose numbers above 31, this may not increase your chance of winning but it can boost your probability of not sharing the prize with anyone. 7. Keep in mind that every number in the lottery has an equal probability of being chosen as the winning number. There is no software that could predict the exact winning number. But you can increase your chance of not splitting the jackpot price if you use the not so common number. 8. Play the right games. There are many kinds of lottery games that you could play, like Quick 10, Power Play etc I hope you found these 8 tips and tricks useful. Now you can better your chances of winning the lottery. In case you missed it, you can now play the lotto on your mobile phone, just dial *515#. (For Econet subscribers only)

Man wins Lotto fortune after rude customer pushes in front of him in queue - calls it 'good karma'

Written by Wednesday, 28 September 2016 00:00;
A calm temperament really paid off! Most people get angry if someone pushes in front of them in a queue. Imagine waiting patiently in line for a train ticket , only for someone to barge in front of you, seemingly oblivious to any etiquette whatsoever. So much stress. But let's try to keep cool. One man did, and his calm demeanor paid off in a big way. His fine temperament made him a millionaire . Wishing to remain anonymous, the New Zealand man won $1 million in the Lottery .As he queued at his local shop in Tauranga on the north island, another customer cut in front of him. But as he wasn't in a rush, he told the New Zealand Herald that he decided against challenging the impatient shopper's rudeness.He just picked up his Lotto ticket a minute or so later and casually walked away.And then won $1 million. "I wasn't in any hurry, so I just let them go ahead and didn't say anything," he told the paper. "I guess good karma pays off - if that hadn't happened, they might have had the winning ticket not me."

Story of the week

Written by Tuesday, 06 September 2016 00:00;
“Wow wow wow is all I can say! Remember how I always buy lunchtime Scratch-Off ticket? Have I said? Maybe did not say? Well, every Friday, to reward self for good week, I stop at store near home, treat self to Butterfinger, plus Scratch-Off ticket. Sometimes, if hard week, two Butterfingers. Sometimes, if very hard week, three Butterfingers. But, if three Butterfingers, no Scratch-Off. But Friday won ten grand!! On Scratch-Off! Dropped both Butterfingers, stood there holding dime used to scratch, mouth hanging open. Kind of reeled into magazine rack. Guy at register took ticket, read ticket, and said, Winner! Guy righted magazine rack, shook my hand. Raced home on foot, forgetting car. Raced back for car. Halfway back, thought, what the heck, raced home on foot. Pam raced out, said, and where is the car? Showed her Scratch-Off ticket. She stood stunned in yard. Are we rich now? Thomas said, racing out, dragging Ferber by collar. Not rich, Pam said. Richer, I said. Richer, Pam said. Damn. All began dancing around yard, Ferber looking witless at sudden dancing, then doing dance of own, by chasing own tail.” Go ahead and get your scratch card from as little as 50c and you could also be richer.
