winner’s response in verbatim

As Lotto representative MCA Tricky and the Lotto crew land in Kajiado – praises and praises rest on them inform of song.

49 year old bubbly mama Grace Sopiato has placed them on Lotto’s map.

It is a no wonder therefore that the Emashuru market has converged to celebrate this win.

My vegetables can now reach the retail shop easily

I can also get water to my boma without tiring

Grace was quick to say

Talk of lucky people! She must have been born on a Friday this one.

With the Lotto Foundation Food support team reaching interiors like Embarbal & Naningoi, Grace couldn’t have been more than encouraged to continue participating in Lotto.

REM ; Every time you play Lotto, 25% of your ticket money goes into Lotto Foundation, which goes a long way in supporting different communal projects.

Find your inspiration – & let it win you Lotto

Emashuru villagers join Grace in celebration

The Fashion Millionaire

The fashionista receiving her 1M cheque

“Fashion is the armour to survive the reality of everyday life.” —Bill Cunningham

That is exactly the mantra 28 year old Ivy Njambi stands on

I adore good clothing

I am definitely opening a clothes stall

kicked off the Millionaire

For a housewife from Eldoret – Kapsaret – what bigger desire would one have that to posses their own dynasty 1 day?

For Ivy – it was just a normal evening at her Eldoret home, catching up with her 3 year old and nanny when the winning call came.

Good Lord – I went blank!

then a deafening scream ensued.

narrates the excited shy Ivy

It would then not catch the Lotto team by surprise when the mother of 1 dawned for Nairobi on the interview day. A whooping 5-6 hour drive to just have her nails & eye lashes proper before her TV moment.

They say marriage can take you anywhere

That is no different from the new Millionaire’s ordeal. With Mt.Kenya origins, she finally settles in the busy land of champions – ELDORET, by marriage.

In a family that understands gaming, playing Lotto for Ivy Njambi wasn’t a surprise to the husband [a sports fanatic who bets on games at times].

I have been playing since 2017

However this happens to be my very first win

confesses Ivy Njambi

What a lucky woman!

Clad in a black plaited dress, wrapped up in a black kimono & finished off with black sandals – the 28year old is careful to pose for some fashion-levelled shots for us before the interview culminates.

Ivy reminisces how she first heard of Lotto on radio ads and encourages ladies to try their luck at it.

The Lotto Jumbo Jackpot comes to an end on 2nd Oct with the promise of a Nissan NP300 yet to be won.

All the best.

Ivy Njambi confirm the cheque is indeed hers

Dr . Frank bangs gold…


Soi Mama Mboga Wins 500K

Mama Rose Jepkemboi at the Lotto offices

Rose Jepkemboi arrives at the Nairobi bus terminus late in the evening for her Lotto interview the next day.

Distance would never make her late for the big interview.

It is her brother Samson Saina – now Shujaa – whom credit is directed to for the 500K win

Ooh Sam would give me money to game

I love that man

chuckles Rose

By looks, you wouldn’t tell mama Rose is a grandmother already!

Beautifully clothed in her floral diira and long – kimonoish brown sweater. She’s trim!

It’s the 25th night of September 2021 – The Lotto Live call is directed all the way to Uasin Gishu county, Soi Location, the small village of Kapkawa.

Rose Jepkemboi is the Jumbo Jackpot winner of the 500K prize money!

The vegetable farmer, who first participated in 2017 – took a break on playing Lotto after a while. She’d then proceed to play in mid 2018, hault & finally to seriously try a chance at it in May 2021!

That final decision was her biggest win – 500K!

A whole half millionaire.

Every time I had no hopes in winning, I’d stop playing

I am now happy for trying every now and then

confessed the elated mama

The blessed Farmer stays with some of her grand children & as for now their fees are sorted!

She’s careful to support her elderly parents with the money, it’s often said though;

Opportunity, meets preparation

I have a 50*100 piece of land to my name

I can now construct rental houses!

concluded the excited landlady to be

Now that’s more like it

The Lotto team wishes you the best Rose Jepkemboi

I only speak Kalenjin but…


Kale Speaking Elder Wins 0.5Million

Josea’s son [far right], Winner Josea Kipkemoi & neighbour Philemon [far left]


Think of those names & your mind automatically shifts to Nandi County

Nandi County is renowned for its heritage, landscapes, its cool highland climate and vistas of rolling tea plantations.

That’s the county that produced the country’s half Millionaire on the night of September the 11th.

65 year old Josea Kipkemoi arap Meli started playing Lotto in 2019 by the help of his trusted neighbour Philemon – who not only helps him operate his android phone, but also reads wins/lotto messages for the elderly Kalenjin speaking citizen.

I was so excited upon my win

I rushed to Philemon for confirmation

translates Philemon

You see, Mzee Kipkemoi is a Kalenjin elder who’s unfamiliar with the Swahili dialect.

On the interview day, he’s accompanied with his older son and neighbour Philemon [doubling up as his translator]

Mzee Kip who’s into the poultry business will now boost his kuku business, & pay fees for his son in the University.

An elated mzee Kipkemoi upon receiving his 500K cheque

The Lotto Jumbo Jackpot at this point almost comes to a close with Josea Kipkemoi arap Meli splitting 1Million with mama Rose Jepkemboi.

One lucky 1Million winner to go

NP 300 Nissan grand prize to go

Play Lotto & win just like mzee Josea arap Meli.

Congratulations sir!

Father of 4 wins big on…

I would do anything to see them get their basics

Explained Manasseh on circumstances surrounding his first job search

42 year old Mzee Manasseh who’s now a caretaker in Western Kenya – Bungoma later chose to resign citing meagre wages – not allowing him to sustain is family.

The caretaker has been playing since 2019 with the great urge to continue after a Ksh 50,000 win.

On the 4th of August , mzee Manasseh was immediately triggered to play after the daily Lotto Messages reminder & winner announcements.

As luck would have it , immediately @9p.m close of draw, he was selected the big winner of 1 Million.

I rushed to the car packed outside & sat still.

I really wanted to absorb the news first

confessed the millionaire
Manasseh Mukhwana the new Millionaire

Mzee Mannaseh, who has a 21 year old 3rd year student @ Rongo University, a Form Four High School student & 2 other kids will sit with them, including the wife & plan on investments.

In life, always look at what you have

Not what you don’t have

Mzee Manasseh closed at that

My first time in Nairobi
