Two players won the LOTTO PLUS 2 jackpot just days apart recently and another player stepped forward to claim a PowerBall PLUS jackpot struck in July.

TWO LOTTO PLUS 2 WINNERS

One player won R3 258 829,90 in the LOTTO PLUS 2 on Saturday, 20 August. Four days later, another player won R1 015 374,60 from the same lottery game.

Wednesday’s winner bought the ticket at a Boxer Superstore in Rustenberg, North West, while the winner of the R5 226 715 PowerBall PLUS jackpot in July stepped forward to claim the prize. They hail from KwaZulu-Natal and preferred to remain anonymous.

“In two consecutive weeks, we have had two LOTTO PLUS 2 jackpot winners bagging exciting jackpots. Our LOTTO PLUS 2 winner from the Saturday 20 August draw is a Johannesburg-based gentleman who walked away with R 3, 258, 829.90 million.”

“Like most of our previous winners, this gentleman plans to use his winnings on building a house and investing a portion of his winnings,” said Ithuba CEO, Charmain Mabuza, in a statement on Friday, 26 August.

The Johannesburg winner told Ithuba he will continue working despite his newfound riches.

The prizes of this weekend’s lottery games will be worth a combined R163 million. The PowerBall jackpot sits at R72 million while the LOTTO is worth R78 million. Millions more are up for grabs in the supplementary draws.
