SUPER 6 is played amongst the Windward Islands of St. Lucia, Dominica, Grenada and St. Vincent.

How can I obtain historical information on draw results?
There is a link PREVIOUS DRAWS on the main menu of each page that can lead you to pages that have historical information on the draws, viz.: Previous Draw Results and Frequencies of Numbers.
How does the lottery ensure that the draw is fair?
All draws are supervised by independent auditors who implement certain procedures run a series of checks to ensure that the integrity and fairness of the games are beyond question.
Can the draw numbers be determined prior to the draw?
No. The machines used for the draws are not computerized and have no memory and they allow all the balls to circulate freely and evenly, therefore the numbers which pop-up are randomly selected.
What is the purpose of the website?
The Website has been created to provide information about the operations of the Lottery, Draw information, Jackpot levels, Winners, news and press releases, donations made by the Lottery to Youth and sports organizations and to communicate with Lottery patrons.
