If someone wins tonight’s Lotto Plus Jackpot, estimated at $21 million, they will walk away with the third highest jackpot won in its history.
The NLCB yesterday confirmed the largest jackpot paid out was $31.9 million on November 11, 2015. The second highest jackpot was $28.1 million, won in March 2018. The current third highest jackpot was won in May 2013 - $20.4 million.
There’s a longstanding belief in T&T that when the Lotto Plus jackpot builds to the current level, it’s always won by someone in south.
Guardian Media also asked where the winning tickets of the top five jackpots were purchased.
The highest ever winning tickets were purchased at Ronald Lotto Shop in Carapaichma, Hometown Pharmacy in Arima, Kamla’s Doubles Centre in St Madeleine, Khan’s Lotto booth in Diego Martin and Carlos Lotto Bar in Princes Town. Only four out of the top ten winning purchases were made in south Trinidad.
In case you think luck may strike twice, the winning numbers played in the 2015 highest payout was 8, 12, 19, 26, 33 Powerball 8
