A lucky Durban resident recently scored big time after winning a whopping R28 million in a South African Lotto jackpot. Earlier this year, the woman also purchased a winning ticket that saw her walking away with R129k.
Speaking in a recent interview, the woman describes how she had bought the quick-pick ticket using her change from grocery shopping at Nadasens Spar Savemor last week Wednesday - something she says she doesn't do very often.
After discovering that she had purchased the winning ticket, she went back to the store and was told to go to the iThuba offices, where she was absolutely shocked to discover that she had won the jackpot.
She said, according to a News24 article:
"I was in shock when I found out I won, I couldn't believe it."
According to a All4Women article, she now has plans for early retirement. She also said that she will be helping her struggling family members and donating some of her winnings to charities that are close to her heart. Meanwhile, locals had this to say:
"Mihlola lapho I only win 2 numbers or 1 naba la they winning ngama double waitsi life is not fair."
"Tell her to watch all the episodes of 'I Blew It' on repeat before touching her money."
In similar news, Briefly.co.za reported that while man singletons were left heartbroken and alone on Valentine's Day here in South Africa, a Johannesburg man was not one of them. The local bachelor won a whopping R7.4m just a few days before Valentine's Day.
Of course, this meant that even though he did not have a bae to keep him company, he did have more than a few million which we're sure was good enough company for him because it would certainly be for us.
Using his Absa banking app and a mere R80, the man chose the winning numbers, 06, 17, 27, 29, 30, 37, and bonus: 41 in the Lotto plus game in a draw that took place on the 10th of February a few weeks ago.
