The much hyped and recently launched Pambazuka National Lottery celebrated its one month anniversary on 10th August, 2016 with a close win to the 10 million mini-jackpot during the Wednesday live recording show aired on NTV. The lucky winner came close to winning the 10 million mini-jackpot after matching five numbers out of the six possible numbers from the two draws.
The winner Kevin Komen, 26years of age from Roysambu in Nairobi County bought his first winning ticket from the Sportpesa website. During an interview with the PNL team Kevin said that he identified Pambazuka National Lottery as a trusted and transparent brand and that was his motivation for playing.
“I was disappointed to hear that I missed the 10million mini-jackpot by just one number, however I’m still hopeful and intend to continue playing until I win the 10 million. I am also yet to decide on how I will use my winnings.”
