It was double joy for fans of leading entertainers including Ayo Makun, Olamide, Tuface Idibia, Zack Orji, Dele Odule, Kcee, Alexx Ekubo, Paul Obazele and Odunlade Adekola on September 11 as they got a two-in-one gift.
Not only did the fans, who are also gamers, get the chance to meet and interact with their idols in the flesh, they also went home N50, 000 richer, courtesy of Western Lotto.
Unsurprisingly, most of the fans cum gamers couldn’t contain their excitement as they intermittently hailed their idols at the event where they got cheques of N50, 000 each as reward for their participation in the Western Lotto Mega Upgrade Promo.
In fact, it was photographs galore at the end of the presentation ceremony where the gaming company also announced an extension of the Mega Upgrade Promo to accommodate more players and the introduction of two new games. The fans wouldn’t stop requesting for photographs with the stars and credit to them, they gladly obliged.
Though some of the gamers, who played on the platforms of Funke Akindele, Toke Makinwa, Ramsey Nouah and Kemi Afolabi who couldn’t make the event because of other commitments, were a bit disappointed, the presence of the other stars who gave them their cheques and teased them while doing so made up for this.
Speaking before the cheques were handed out, Managing Director of Western Lotto Nigeria Limited, Yomi Ogunfowora, said the company would pay N20.9m to 418 customers who attained eligibility for the promo.
He also restated a commitment to the company’s earlier announced goal of rewarding 2042 customers, and that it would achieve this through the extension of the consumer promotion.
Eligible participants are those who funded their wallets on the Western Lotto portal with N3000, including an incentive of N1000 from the celebrity ambassadors of the brand.
Ogunfowora stated, “At Western Lotto, we are committed to rewarding 2042 customers with prizes totalling N168m cash plus two brand new Hyundai cars. As you came into our corporate headquarters, I am sure you would have seen the cars out there, awaiting winners.
“In line with our brand character, we have decided to ensure that while we did not have enough participants to hold a draw, we must fulfil our promise of rewarding customers. We are thus rewarding all eligible participants with N50, 000. Our offer is in addition to the N52m we had given out in incentives to participants either in support of the proposition of our ambassadors or as call credits.”
Ogunfowora, who also announced the introduction of two new games, Lotto Race and Kashman, gave further details. “Lotto Race is a fast-paced, high-action game of lotto. It is an online game of bets involving some players with guaranteed wins in each match. There are instant results in these fast games, with immediate rewards. Lotto Race allows you to compete against other players from all parts of the globe online and thus creates an online community of friends, players and winners. It offers games that start as soon as there are enough players and commence at fixed times. Whoever matches all the numbers on a line first win; then a new line forms for the next game, and it goes on and on.”
About Kashman, he said: “Kashman is a slot game with six variations and correspondingly large winning chances. Three of the games offer daily draws, six days in a week. There are My Kashman Daily N100, My Kashman Daily N75 and My Kashman Daily N50.Participants play with N100, N75 or N50. Winnings range from N75 to as high as N10million, depending on the number of correct matches the player makes.”
