Just the ticket: R158m PowerBall winner spent only R15

The national lottery operator said the PowerBall Plus jackpot of more than R17m was won.

The winning ticket was purchased just hours before the draw took place. It was bought at Super Spar, at the Silver Oaks Crossing Centre in Pretoria.

The Gauteng winner spent R105 on the ticket using the Quick Pick method.

Ithuba CEO Charmaine Mabuza has congratulated the winners.

“Congratulations to our PowerBall and PowerBall PLUS jackpot winners. When we took over the operations of the National Lottery, we promised to offer life-changing jackpots and we are delivering just that. We have kept our promise to reinvigorate the national lottery by offering record-breaking jackpots and creating more winners and multimillionaires than any other South African lottery operator.

“We are excited to have made two South African millionaires once again,” said Mabuza.

Anyone who wins more than R50,000 receives “extensive financial advice as well as trauma counselling from qualified psychologists”, said Ithuba. This was to “help them deal with their new financial circumstances”.

“These advisory services come at no cost to the winner,” said Ithuba.
