Baba Ijebu Lotto also known as Premier Lotto is Nigeria’s leading lottery company privately owned by Kesington Adebutu who is also known as “Baba Ijebu“. Baba Ijebu Lotto is a lottery company, a form of gambling and in this case it involves the drawing of winning numbers (lots) for a monetary reward.
Baba Ijebu is mostly common in Lagos state but with other branches in Ogun state, Oyo state, Edo state, Enugu, Osun state and Abuja with more branches to spring up soon in other states.
There are other lottery companies in Nigeria presently but baba ijebu lotto has been around for sometime and with them having the lions share when it comes to lottery in Nigeria, you can be rest assured that no matter how much you win, baba ijebu must pay you your dough even if its a hundred million naira. (N100,000,000)
Baba ijebu’s agents can be identified by the red terminals or boxes you see in kiosks and shops and is some cases under the large umbrellas. You can play your games there with as little as twenty naira (N20). See sample terminal picture below.
Lotteries have been existing in other countries since the early 19th century and with Nigeria joining the band wagon in the 20th century.
Now that you have an understanding of what Baba Ijebu is all about lets take a deeper look at how to play baba ijebu, baba ijebu games and also how to check your baba ijebu winning numbers so that baba ijebu can pay you you dough.
How To Play Baba Ijebu
There are two ways of playing baba ijebu (offline and online). But before I do that you need to understand what you tend to win when you play the game as this is the real motivation behind the game.
There are several ways of of playing and each giving you different winning amount. The different ways starting from the least paying are Permutation, 2 Sure, 3 Direct, 4 Direct and 5 Direct.
The game consist of numbers from 1 to 90 with 5 winning numbers being drawn randomly for every game and all you have to do to win is try to predict at least 2 of any of the 5 winning numbers in any way you want as explained below.
Baba Ijebu Permutation
Permutation is a way of playing the lotto that guarantees a greater chance of winning. By permutation it means you can combine up to 10 numbers and if just 2 out of your 10 combined numbers comes out of the result (draw) you would win something.
This is the easiest to play but does not guarantee maximum winning, most people play permutation as a way to get their money back if any of the other high winning combination as written below fails them.
Baba Ijebu 2 Sure
This is the most popular of all the different ways of playing the game as it guarantees high reward with lower risk when compared to the others below. By 2 Sure it means playing just 2 numbers that you think would be in the 5 winning draw numbers. An example of 2 Sure is 1 – 90 or 47 – 66 and if you play 2 sure with just one hundred naira (N100) you stand to win twenty four thousand naira (N24,000).
With this explanation it means that with any amount you play you should multiply it by 240 to know how much you stand to win.
However do note that you must get the 2 numbers to win. If only one out of your two numbers comes out in the result you don’t win anything.
Baba Ijebu 3 Direct
Not as common as the first two at the top however I can assure you so many people have won with this 3 Direct and as explained with the 2 sure above you must get all three numbers to win. If only one or two of your numbers are contained in the result you do not win anything.
By 3 Direct it means you are predicting any 3 numbers from 1 to 90 you think would be in the 5 winning draw numbers. An example of 3 Direct is 30 – 5- 75 or 1 – 12 – 89. If you play 3 Direct with just a hundred naira (N100) and your three numbers are among the five winning numbers you should win nothing less than two hundred and ten thousand naira (N210,000).
Baba Ijebu 4 Direct
To be honest with you I have only seen a handful of people play the Baba Ijebu 4 Direct. Unlike the others above this is a bigger risk when compared to the rest above and I assure you that if all your four numbers comes out in the 5 winning draw numbers, you are a millionaire with just a hundred naira (N100).
The risk involved is that if you play 4 numbers (e.g 55 – 87 – 90 – 5 – 11), all the four numbers must be among the 5 winning draw numbers. If you do play this game with just five hundred naira (N500) or one thousand naira (N1000) your winning should be so much that you do not have to work again for the rest of your life 🙂 .
Baba Ijebu 5 Direct
Funnily enough I have seen a lot of risk takers and more people play the Baba Ijebu 5 Direct than the 4 Direct. These guys are just hoping that one day luck would shine on them and all their predicted 5 numbers would be in the 5 winning draw numbers.
Although I have to say the few I have seen do not play anything above a hundred naira (N100) as the probability of predicting all 5 winning numbers is as slim as an elephant through the eye of a needle.
You do not need me to tell you that playing this 5 Direct with just five hundred naira (N500) means you and your children will never have to work except one foolishly gambles all the money away. You could easily be a billionaire with 5 direct.
How to Get Baba Ijebu Winning Numbers
With the explanation above the next thing on your mind is “is it possible to get baba ijebu sure winning numbers?” I would say “yes” and “no”. I have seen and heard of people calculating it and winning and I have also heard of people dreaming the winning numbers.
But which ever method you decide to use always remember it is a game of chance and you are advised not to stake more than you can lose so as not to hurt yourself.
Below are some ways of getting baba ijebu winning numbers:
It is a way of predicting numbers that means playing the same set of numbers over and over again till you get lucky. Although this is most common with 2 Sure and some can go as far as playing (1 – 90) for a whole year and to be honest this number comes out at least twice in a year. Although you can never know when it would come out as a winning number.
This as explained is a way of predicting numbers but in this case one sees it in his or her dream. It may not come like as direct message but some say in their dreams they could see then plate number of a car or the number of a house and play it when they wake up. If you ask me i do not know how effective this method is.
This is the most common and it requires going through past results even as far back as 1999 or year 2000. Some do so by playing the same result that came out that week in years past or going through a sequence that looks like pattern sure to repeat itself in the present year.
