The Winner of N500,000 Western Lotto game, Soyombo Olanrewaju Qadim, has said he would use the money to finance his education.

Qadim, an undergraduate of the Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijebu Ode, Ogun, said this on Monday, at the presentation of N500,000 cheque in Western Lotto House, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Although, Qadim, who said his expectation was to win a higher amount said he would settle for the amount as it will go a long way to support his education.

Soyombo Qadim said at the presentation: “Firstly, I was thinking I would win bigger than this. This money is basically for my education because I'm a student of the Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijebu Ode. I’m sure I will win bigger than this because I will continue to play.”

Managing Director, Western Lotto, Mr Yomi Ogunfowora, said that Western Lotto was excited at the win by one of its patrons. He remarked that the win by a resident of Ibadan confirms high awareness about the Western Lotto platform by many patrons across Nigeria.

“It is important to note that Mr Soyombo Qadim is just one of over 2000 lucky winners on the Western Lotto platform since our commencement on July 10.  More than 2,000 players have won various prizes since we commenced.  People have won on MegaMillions, EuroMillions, Euro Jackpot, Power Ball and UK Lotto.”

Ogunfowora noted that as part of its ongoing Mega Upgrade Promo, Western Lotto had rewarded 16,000 participants with N1,000 in their Western Lotto wallets in support of the offer by their brand ambassadors.
