Solomon Wainaina Mbugua had for a long time been playing Lotto without much to write home about. Then things suddenly changed. Solomon recently won KES1.2 Million in Lotto’s 293rd draw. The draw was held on Saturday August 25th 2018.
The 57-year-old resident of Maasai Mara in Narok County had been a consistent Lotto player for two years. He was motivated by the work Lotto did in a bid to change the lives of the needy in society.
And so, even though he did not win, he was contented, knowing he helped someone somewhere. Lotto has been doing this through the Lotto Foundation.
Now, with the KES1.2 Million win, Wainaina is thankful to Lotto for giving him the opportunity to play and finally win something he can use to enrich his family.
The father of three will use the money to expand his business in Maasai Mara, where he also has a spare parts shop. He also plans to develop his home in Sotik, where his wife and children are mostly based. His wife is so happy that the house they have been building may finally be completed.
With the Lotto win, Wainaina says paying the school feel for his lastborn will be easier too. He also plans to give little sums to his children to start something beneficial.
He confesses that the Lotto win is never really for one person, but a blessing to many. “I expect a transformation because my source of income will expand courtesy of Lotto. My family and many people will benefit in the form of jobs, even if casual.” he says.
Wainaina has urged many more Kenyans to play Lotto, and not to give up because their time to win will come. He urges Lotto to continue the foundation’s work.
