The promotion is geared towards improving vaccination levels and enabling people to win hundreds of thousands in cash and prizes every week.
In a statement today, Supreme Ventures noted that the Betting Gaming and Lotteries Commission, BGLC, has been advised and the promotion will hit the market very soon. The competition aims to ensures that people who get their vaccinations may also receive cash and prizes.
The company says effective June 20 this year, any individual over the age of 18-years-old, who has been vaccinated, may enter and get their chance to win.
Entries will be submitted via an online entry form. Each person is allowed one entry and upon winning, people will simply need to present their vaccination card and ID to receive their prizes.
In commenting on the initiative, CEO of Prime Sports Jamaica Limited, Xesus Johnston, said, “we all need to pull together to ensure that the country is able to get back on track as we learn to live and work with Covid-19”.
Mr. Johnston further commented, “the vaccination program is a critical part of the way forward and at Supreme Ventures we are ready to do our part to encourage as many persons to get vaccinated as possible.”
According to Mr. Johnston, as the country’s leading lottery provider, Supreme Ventures, which has one of the largest distribution networks across the country, wants to contribute significantly towards the national vaccination effort.
The first drawing of the raffle will be June 28, while the company’s celebration of their 20th anniversary of operations in Jamaica is underway.
Supreme Ventures says thereafter subsequent drawings will be conducted each week.
Mr. Johnston said, “we are in discussions with the Ministry of Health regarding Vax & Win, as we look forward to working with them in supporting the national Covid-19 vaccination drive.”
Supreme Ventures says it’s urging all Jamaicans to follow the Ministry of Health’s defined protocols as the country continues to face the challenges of the pandemic.
The company is also calling on Jamaicans to remember to wear masks, frequently wash hands, observe social distancing guidelines and stay home if they are feeling ill in order to limit the spread of Covid-19.
