Kenyan Government Worker Wins $50,000 in the US Powerball!

E.L., a thirty five-year-old analyst for the Kenyan government walks away from the 20 April Powerball with a tidy sum of $50,000. E.L. is married with two children. He loves playing rugby, swimming, and sports betting.

He has been playing lotteries only since 2009 and his first encounter with a lottery was when he played the New York Powerball while he was visiting relatives in the United States. He never knew about theLotter until he did some research. “I was fascinated with the Powerball jackpot and it forced me to do research on the possibilities of being able to play lotteries like the US Powerball online from Kenya,” he said. Luckily E.L. had theLotter on his side when placing that winning bet.

Spurred on by January's $1.6 Billion Powerball

E.L. was also fascinated by January's $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot. He kept watching it grow after every draw wondering what it would be like to win such a grand prize. His favorite lotteries to play, however, are the Powerball and the US Mega Millions because these were the first lotteries he would play on his visits to the United States.

The Kenyan Champion's Secret to Winning the Powerball

E.L. has a simple strategy for winning. “I have a set of predetermined numbers that I always play on rotation irrespective of the lottery I am playing. I simply keep repeating the same numbers over and over.” E.L. also likes to play in the syndicate lotteries because he can buy more lottery tickets at a fraction of the cost, there are guaranteed better odds at winning the jackpot, and he gets to share the excitement of winning with other players.

Before this big $50,000 win, E.L. won $100 in the US Mega Millions. His tip for other online lottery players is to just keep playing because eventually it will pay off and that it certainly did for E.L. Now he is able to go and purchase a replacement vehicle for the one he recently sold. He says this prize will go a long way in helping finance this purchase.

It is clear that E.L. realized he could win huge lottery prizes when playing the biggest draws in the world online, something that he couldn't win if he had just played an African lottery draw like the SA Lotto. Congratulations to him on his win!
