Super 6 Draw Incident

Published

September 2 2020, St Lucia National Lottery – Super 6 Draw Incident

We wish to address and provide clarity on a situation involving the Super 6 draw#2019 of Tuesday September 1st, 2020. The issue relates to an employee of the St. Lucia National Lottery who as part of the draw process for the Multi-island Super 6 game was privy to privileged information on the results of the draw and without permission and in violation of the policy regarding the draw process released this information in advance of the airing of the official result at 9:00 p.m. This is a clear violation of the procedures for the draw process which is conducted under the strictest levels of control and integrity.

The Super 6 game is a Multijurisdictional game played within the Windward Islands of St Lucia, Dominica, St. Vincent & The Grenadines, and Grenada. The agreement between these Islands authorizes the pre-recording of the Super 6 draw which is aired throughout the Islands during their normal evening draw broadcast on Tuesdays and Fridays.

At no time was the process of the draw compromised as all controls to ensure the secure closure of sales before the draw process began were followed. The process of selection of the winning number was conducted according to the full established guidelines and supervised by independent external auditors who approved the draw and its results. We wish to re-assure the public that at no time was the result of the draw compromised. 

Every Draw Process is fully conducted under the Supervision of two Auditors from BDO. Ticket sales for Super 6 tickets are suspended at 7:45pm, this means that tickets for that game can no longer be purchased ahead of the start of the draw process. 

The St Lucia national Lottery prides itself on its credibility and integrity and conducts all draws under the strictest international standards for best practice.

 We would like to assure the public that the integrity of the St Lucia National Draws is of paramount importance and once our full internal investigation is completed the person or persons with responsibility for this breach will be held accountable and requisite changes made to prevent similar recurrence. 

Thank you.

THE POLICE SHOOT DOWN PM’s CLAIM IMPACS SAGA IS “RESOLVED”

Published

The Prime Minister’s victory lap following the resumption of United States sponsored assistance to the Royal Saint Lucia Police, still under Leahy Law sanctions, has been tempered by the Police Welfare Association. During his July 5 address to the nation, the Prime Minister declared the IMPACS saga has been “resolved”. His utterances appear to contradict the US Ambassador to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean who on June 18 confirmed the Leahy sanction are still in place and Saint Lucia’s chief prosecutor is still expected to address the conclusions in the IMPACS report. The PWA says they expect the Prime Minister to correct the record.
