Someone bagged more than R94m in lottery winnings



One lucky South African has won more than R94 million in the latest lottery draw. Could it be you?

The Powerball and Powerball Plus draws took place at 21:00 on Friday.

There were no winners from Tuesday’s R90 million lotto Powerball Plus jackpot.

With the rollover from previous Powerball Plus draw, the jackpot stood at a whopping R94 446 937 million.

Ithuba has urged South Africans to check their tickets following the draw on Friday night.

A total of R134 million in jackpots was up for grabs.

As a refresher, here are last night’s PowerBall and PowerBall Plus results.

With the rising cost of food and fuel prices, life will be a lot easier for the winner.

Winners who receive winnings of R50 000 and above receive free trauma counselling and financial advice from professional psychologists and a team of financial advisors at no additional cost.

All National Lottery winnings are tax free.

Meanwhile, Ithuba has warned South Africans to be careful of fake or fraudulent jackpot notifications.

“The only way to win with the National Lottery is to by and be in possession of a winning ticket. The National Lottery will never send you an email or SMS stating the value of your winning or asking for your details in order to claim your winnings.

“You can claim from any participating retailer of the Ithuba offices. Beware of such messages as these could be a scam.”

Ithuba also said it is improving its online playing experience, and that all notifications will be sent to players free of charge to their personal National Lottery inbox, and no longer via SMS.
