DSFN Benefits from N1 Billion Jackpot Lotto, Following Kanu Heart Foundation
Following last week’s successful launch of the Kanu Heart Foudation’s N1 billion jackpot lotto, Lagos-based charity, Down Syndrome Foundation Nigeria (DSFN), is the next to benefit and today launches dsf.afromillionslotto.com
DSFN’s mission is ‘to bridge the gap between people with Down Syndrome and the rest of the society, through a support system that seeks to integrate them fully into the community in which they live’. The charity provides educational programmes and help for thousands of people throughout Nigeria with Down Syndrome.
With a jackpot starting at N1 billion, the DSFN lotto, in conjunction with the AfroMillionsLotto, features a twice-weekly draw offering the biggest jackpots in Africa. Twenty percent of every ticket sold will go directly to DSFN to ensure its important work continues. This includes a campaign to raise awareness of the syndrome and generate understanding throughout Nigeria.
Commenting on the DSFN lotto, the Foundation’s CEO, Muyiwa Majekodunmi, said:
“It has been a tough year for lots of us running charities; and raising funds for our various activities and projects has indeed been difficult and challenging. But, just when you are about to throw up your arms, cry and give up, there comes a spark of light that has the potential to ignite into flames of hope and certainty for a truly bright future for the Foundation and the people it represents.
Words cannot express enough the overwhelming excitement I have about the privilege of the Down Syndrome Foundation Nigeria being selected as a partner and beneficiary of the AfroMillions Lotto. It is pioneering, it’s new, it’s true and it’s for a truly great and altruistic purpose.
No purpose can be greater than doing something much bigger than oneself that will benefit a vision of giving hope, life and meaning to our people living with Down Syndrome.
The first dsf.afromillionslotto.com draw takes place on Wednesday 25th October. If there isn’t a jackpot winner, the prize money rolls over, increasing by N100 million with each draw until it reaches a maximum of over N2 billion. There are also nine, ‘Candy Crush’ style, Instant Win games on the website, which can be played for fun or to win cash prizes of up to N12 million.
If you’d like to support DSFN, visit dsf.afromillionslotto.com – not only will you have the chance to win a jackpot that would change you and your families’ lives forever, you’ll also be giving a charity much-needed funding to help children and adults throughout Nigeria.

How the Down Syndrome Nigeria Foundation lotto works
After selecting setting up an account at
dsf.afromillionslotto.com anyone over the age of 18 can deposit money using their credit or debit card or e-wallet.
You then choose a line of six numbers ranging from 1 – 49 and an additional bonus number between 0 – 9 before buying a ticket costing 0.60 Euros (€) (approx. N250). The winning numbers are based on the twice-weekly German National Lottery draw, which can be viewed live on German television on Wednesday and Saturday evenings.
Jackpots and prizes will be displayed at dsf.afromillionslotto.com
together with the prizes for correctly predicting 6, 5, 4, 3 and 2 matching numbers. The minimum jackpot starts at 2,500,000 Euros (€) (more than N1 billion) and rolls over by 250,000 Euros (€) each time it’s not won until it reaches a maximum of 5,000,000 Euros (€).
The Down Syndrome Nigeria Foundation AfroMillionsLotto sells tickets and displays jackpots in Euros (€) because it’s the currency of choice for the lottery industry. However, people pay to play in Naira and when they win, they’ll withdraw money in Naira too. By promoting the DSFN AfroMillionsLotto in Euros (€), we can offer the biggest jackpots in Africa. It’s as simple as that.
