Three people made a killing of D42,300 after winning the Gambia National Lottery (GNL) Draw held on Saturday at the GNL office in Westfield.

Ndey Fama Gaye, Maudo Malick Jobe and Ekudayo Smart each went home with D14,100.

Speaking at the presentation, Nyawuru Komma, product development officer of the GNL, called on the general public to patronise his company.

"With as low as D6, one is likely to win over half a million dalasis," said Mr Komma.

According to him, prior to the presentation, the lottery company had given three different lucky customers D287,610 each.

He said the GNL is committed to making people dreams come true overnight.

"What the GNL is doing is a stepping stone in achieving the MDGs," he said.

Mr Komma further revealed that their efforts among others are geared towards alleviating poverty in the country.

Ebrima Jallow, a staff of the GNL, presented the jackpot to the lucky winners on behalf of the company managing director.
