Someone R57.7m richer after scooping Powerball jackpot

Someone who bought a lottery ticket in Pretoria is R57.7 million richer after winning Friday night’s mega Ithuba PowerBall jackpot.

The lucky winner‚ who on Saturday had yet to come forward and claim their winnings‚ played for R45 and made a selection of five numbers and a PowerBall to become the country’s latest multi-millionaire.

The winning ticket was purchased in the nation’s capital on the day of the draw.

This week also saw a PowerBall Plus player from the south of Johannesburg walking away with just over R25.7 million and a KwaZulu-Natal player winning the R33.3 million LOTTO jackpot.
