CASH Pot players islandwide have racked up over a billion dollars in winnings at the end of the third week of Supreme Ventures’ latest promotion, Cash Pot Mega Pot, which kicked off on September 23.
Players who haven’t played the new promotion only have one more week to cash in on the winnings, Supreme Ventures said in a release yesterday.
In the three weeks since the start of the promotion, players have bagged $1.297 billion.
The Mega Pot promotion features three Mega Balls, Gold, Silver and Green. The ball machine contains five balls, 3 Mega Balls (Gold, Silver and Green) and only two white balls. Players have an increased chance of ‘catching’ a Mega Ball in every draw and more cash has been paid out on the classic Gold Ball.
To participate and win, players will continue to play the Mega Ball feature as usual, which starts with purchasing Cash Pot with a minimum wager of $10. For every $10 wager on the Cash Pot base game, players can spend an additional $10 minimum to equal their base wager, to participate in the Mega Ball feature.
Immediately after the regular Cash Pot draw, there is a draw for the Mega Ball. If a white ball is drawn, winners of the base game will receive the normal prize payout of $260 for every $10 bet.
If the Gold Mega Ball is drawn, winners of the base game will win the prize payout of $260 for every $10 bet, plus the Mega Ball payout of $780, for a total of $1,040. This is an increase of $80 over the usual $700 payout for the Gold Mega Ball.
If the Silver Mega Ball is drawn, winners in the base game will win the $260 payout for every $10 bet, plus the Mega Ball payout of $300, for a total of $560.
If the new Green Mega Ball is drawn, the winner in the base game will win $260 for every $10 bet, plus the Mega Ball payout of $200, for a total of $460.
Assistant vice-president, group corporate communications Simone Clarke-Cooper said even more people are playing Cash Pot week over week since the start of Cash Pot Mega Pot,
“We have seen an uptick in our week-over-week sales and with the addition of the silver and gold balls, players now have a 60 per cent chance to win the Cash Pot Mega Ball with each ball attracting higher pay outs. This is a win-win-win and we encourage all players to enjoy the promotion while it lasts,” she said.
