$19 billion earned from Supreme Ventures' games last year

Last year, Jamaican players won more than $19 billion from playing the Cash Pot, Pick 4, Pick 3 and Pick 2 games.

Despite a population of about 2.6 million, Jamaicans won nearly 8,000 times more in 2013 from these games.

Some persons play just for the fun of it, while others use these winnings to pay outstanding debts or buy some extra groceries.

"When I win, I go to the grocery and get more food in the house," said delivery man Carey Richard.

Sonia Davidson, Supreme Ventures' vice-president for Group Corporate Communications, said: "I've heard people tell our cashiers how the silver lining to their day was looking forward to playing many of our games. They use the opportunity not only as a means of entertainment, but as a way of making ends meet. And the figures say it all, our players won over $19 billion playing Cash Pot, Pick 2, Pick 3 and Pick 4. That is not petty cash."
