- A lucky winner is in line for a jackpot of R141 million
- The winning ticket was purchased in a small town in the Western Cape
- The winner has not yet claimed their prize
The national lottery has confirmed that the winning ticket for the last lotto draw was purchased from a small town in the Western Cape. The lucky winner is yet to claim their millions.
The total population of Groot Brakrivier community is about 10,000 with a little more than 3 000 homes. However, the winning ticket could have been from a passing motorist as it was purchased next to the highway.
The winner used only R105 and a quick-pick selection and managed to land the whooping jackpot. They will be joining two other punters who've won more than R100 million.
This list includes the February R232 million winner from Cape Town and last year's R145 million winner from Mpumalanga.
The announcement comes after another lucky player from Soweto won over R9 million in a Lotto Plus jackpot for the August 21 draw. The winning ticket was bought at the Pick n Pay Mini Market in the Tsele shopping centre. The winner had spent R10 on their bid for the jackpot.
The National Lotto is calling on all the winners to get in touch with them so they can begin the claiming process.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that a local man shared the happy news that he won some money in the lottery and social media users were ready with funny remarks and sarcastic comments. The South African sense of humour is awesome!
