Thirteen (13) months ago she started to play two of the six games offered by the National Lotteries Authority (NLA), Super Six and Lotto.
Today, Marsha Gay, a mother of two boys, is $86,000 richer having chosen the winning numbers in the Lotto game two weeks ago.
Gay said she missed winning the Super Six games in December 2012 by one number but continued to play every day using special numbers associated with her life.
The winning ticket was purchased at a shop operated by Agent Frances Alexander in Hillsborough.
Gay was presented with her winning cheque by NLA Board member, Atkinson Felix who congratulated her and encouraged her to continue playing.
The lucky winner said she has no special plans for the money at the moment.
Felix was accompanied to the cheque presentation ceremony by NLA employees, Finance Manager, Richard De Allie and Marketing Assistant, Amilcar George.
The National Lotteries Authority is celebrating twenty (20) years of terminal games this year and supports a number of cultural and sporting events on the island which includes the Parang Festival and the annual inter island secondary athletic meet.
