Two lucky South Africans are multi-millionaires and they don't even know it yet. Ithuba recently made the announcement that two players who won R20m and R30m in the last month have yet to claim the prize.
Ithuba CEO Charmaine Mabuza has encouraged the people who purchased a ticket at a pawn shop in Carltonville to check their tickets because that is where a ticket was purchased that won the R20m prize on the 29th May.
Meanwhile, the other lucky winner of an R30m prize also has not come forward to claim their prize after a draw saw their lucky numbers being called on the 14 of April, a Timeslive article recently reported.
Briefly News also reported about an incredibly lucky Cape Town man bagged a Lotto jackpot of R56 million after buying an R45 ticket from a local spaza shop in the Thornton area on the 4 May this year.
According to the man, his first priority is to exhume the bodies of his deceased relatives and rebury them in a "more peaceful place." The man, who is still in disbelief about his wealth status, also said that he and his wife are looking to invest in property where they will begin the process of building their dream home. They will also invest a large portion of the winnings.
“I’ve been playing the same numbers since November last year. Each number represents a significant date in my life," said the man, who is ow R56m richer, according to Ithuba and DailyVoice.
