Baba Ijebu Pay Me My Dough

What is Baba Ijebu Lotto?

Baba Ijebu (also called Baba Ijebu paymemydough) is now a household name in Nigeria. There is hardly any state in Nigeria (aside from a few Northern states) where you won’t hear the name. Baba Ijebu is the street name for Premier Lotto Limited which is one of the biggest lottery and sports event betting companies in Nigeria. Premier Lotto, one of the oldest lottery operators in Nigeria, was launched in the year 2001 shortly after the Federal Government of Nigeria approved lottery and other sports betting. The game went on to become so popular beginning from Lagos where it all started and where its head office remains till today. This lottery has undoubtedly gained wide acceptance by Nigerians. 

It might interest you to know that the term ‘Baba Ijebu’ is more popular than the term ‘Premier Lotto’. In fact, many of the players don’t even know the real name of the lottery company. The term ‘Baba Ijebu’ comes from the Yoruba language meaning an elderly man from Ijebu (a place in Ogun State of Nigeria). This, they got from the local dialect of the founder and CEO of Premier Lotto Limited - Sir Kensington Adebukunola Adebutu CON, KJW, FISM who is from Ikene in Ogun State, Nigeria. With time, the term ‘Baba Ijebu paymemydough’ has also become popular on the streets.

The Baba Ijebu paymemydough game is one that deals with predictions. You get to choose some set of numbers and then stake on them. If at least two of these numbers make the draw, you win a substantial amount of money and the amount you can win increases with an increase in the amount you stake, the kind of game you play, and how many numbers make the draw. Different games have different multipliers. These multipliers are what stand as odds in the lottery. So the amount you get to win is the initial amount you stake times the multiplier.

When the results are released, they come in two sets of 5 numbers – winning numbers and machine numbers. The winning numbers just like the name implies are the numbers that determine winnings. They are the actual result that you should be targeting because when the numbers you chose fall into this category, you’ve won. The machine number on the other hand represents a near miss. It’s said to be the last set of numbers that the numbers produce after producing the winning result. There are always speculations that these machine numbers hold great promises though.

In the permutation games, you can choose a minimum of 3 numbers and a maximum of 10 numbers, and the more numbers you choose, the more your stake. Once you choose the numbers, it creates lines. For permutation 2 games, 2 numbers create 1 line, 3 numbers create 3 lines, 5 numbers create 10 lines, 10 numbers create 45 lines, and so on. When you select a certain amount of number, your total stake will be your single stake times the number of lines that were created, i.e. if you choose 3 numbers and want to stake N10 on each, your total stake will be 3*3*10 = N90. If it were to be a 5 number, it would be 5*10*10 = N500. The winnings on the other hand are equal to individual stakes on each number*number of lines*multiplier. Thus an increase in the number of lines and your staking will increase your winning amount.
