- A local woman amusingly shared she had just won a 'whopping' R9.80 in the National Lottery
- She sarcastically writes she plans on investing the money and needs financial assistance from a local bank
-Mzansi found the woman's silly post absolutely priceless and took to the comments section to share their thoughts on the matter
A local lady hilariously took to Twitter to share her excitement at winning the Lotto. Twitter user @unathi_Vuyi had our tummies sore from laughter after it was discovered she only won R9.80 in the draw. In the post, she sarcastically writes:
"My empire is growing.....because I'm an investor in my mind.....I'm taking these winnings to Nedbank...@Nedbank my baby, please organise a financial advisor there I don't want to make mistakes."
Knowing every big success has small beginnings, Mzansi tweeps were definitely here for the vision. Read some of their comments below:
"Beware of "I blew it" tendencies"
"Girl, I'm rich."
"They @Nedbank Will Never Entertain Anyone Unless You Win Half A Million OR More"
"Come here for financial advice... I charge just R9 per hour"
"You better wait for it ko atm before di bank charges hit"
"I must invest in your business. Start looking for a plot so we can start building right away.."
"Road to a million"
"They should've just given you 9M once"
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported it's said lighting never strikes the same place twice, at least not unless you're one very lucky Mzansi man.
A 57-year old geologist who betted twice on the same numbers in the Lotto Plus has walked away with a double jackpot. The anonymous man won a total of R803 434.20 in the April 14 draw.
It's reported the winner used a banking app to play and opted for the manual selection of his lucky winning numbers. “Using numbers that he had randomly selected the lucky player betted on the same numbers twice and bagged the full Lotto Plus 1 jackpot amount,” said Charmaine Mabuza, iThuba’s CEO.
In a statement, the winner said:
“I was extremely happy to learn that I had won the Lotto jackpot, I will use this money to pay off all my debts. I’m currently building a house for my wife and me. A small portion of my winnings will go towards the completion and furnishing of the house."
“I plan on investing the balance of my winnings to have savings available for a rainy day.”
Mzansi social media users were sure to share their thoughts on the unlikely turn of events. Read some of their comments below:
"This is an inside job, they are going to share 50/50 with the employee that sent him to bet."
"I've spent 25 years trying to bet, but even today dololo."
"The SIU should do a thorough investigation on South African Lottery. There's definitely something fishy going on."
"I planned and betted twice previously on the same numbers. If it's fraud the system should have been designed to kick off such tickets."
