What Happens Now for the Winners?

Anyone who played South Africa Lotto on Saturday is being urged to check their lines and, if they discover that they are a winner, they should keep the ticket in a safe and memorable location and contact lottery operator ITHUBA within a year of the draw to make their claim.

The company, which has run South African lottery games since June 2015, offers big winners a suite of services aimed at helping them adjust financially and emotionally to life as a millionaire. They provide financial and legal advice, help winners plan their estate and give them access to trauma and emotional counselling at a time when it might otherwise be difficult to think straight.

South Africa Lotto Millionaires

South Africa Lotto has now created 356 millionaires since it launched in 2000. The successful game spawned a supplementary draw, Lotto Plus 1, in November 2003, before Lotto Plus 2 arrived in August 2017.

Each draw requires players to match six numbers from 52 to win the jackpot, and one lucky player is now R11.6 million richer having done so in Lotto Plus 1 on Saturday night.

You can play for a R3 million South Africa Lotto jackpot this Wednesday night, whilst Lotto Plus 2 features a R5.6 million top prize. The biggest South Africa lottery prize this week is Powerball Plus’ R22 million bounty, which is up for grabs on Tuesday.
