Ventures Ltd. (SVL), is a locally owned company and was formed in 1995 by the
late Peter Stewart, Paul Hoo and Ian Levy. The company began lottery operations
on June 25, 2001. The company has diversified its portfolio into other areas of
the gaming industry including Video Gaming Lounges and Sports Betting. On
January 1, 2007 a new company - Supreme Ventures Lotteries Limited was formed
and the licences for all the lottery game brands were transferred to that
On January 11, 2001, a licence was granted by the
Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission to Supreme Ventures Limited, to
promote and conduct three specific lottery games under strict rules and
regulations established by the Commission.
The licence granted by the
Commission was valid for 10 years. The Company has since received an extension
of its licence to the year 2026.
The Company began operations on June 25,
2001 with two out of the three lottery games that it was licensed to offer.
The games were "Cash Pot" and "Lucky5". The third game, Dollaz!, was
launched on January 20, 2003. During its relatively short tenure, Supreme
Ventures has earned the enviable reputation of being one of the leading and
more dynamic companies in Jamaica with its well recognized brand icon being the
treasure chest. SVL acquired 100% of the shareholdings in the Jamaica Lottery
Company (JLC) in December 2003, thus gaining a larger foothold in the gaming
industry with lottery sales for the financial year 2007 exceeding $16.9
The company has grown significantly since the acquisition of JLC
and now boasts annual revenue in excess of $25 Billion dollars. With a labour
force of approximately 450 persons directly employed to the Supreme Ventures
Group and over 900 lottery terminals islandwide, with a total of 7 lottery
games, the popularity of our products has increased as everything is now all
"under one roof".
The local games are Cash Pot, Lucky5, Dollaz!, Lotto,
Pick 3, Pick 2 and WinQuick, the scratch and win type game.
Ventures Lotteries Limited introduced the Super Lotto game on August

first game of its kind in the Caribbean and Latin America. Super Lotto is sold
