Ladies and gents, we have another Lotto winner. A 43-year-old investment banker has come forward to claim a whopping R7 million after he struck it big in the Lotto draw that took place on Saturday 14 August. 

National Lottery Operator, ITHUBA, said the winning ticket was purchased on the National Lottery website and the winner spent  R100 on the winning ticket using the manual selection method to select the winning numbers of 5, 14, 19, 34, 44, 49, and the Bonus Ball number 8. 


Well first things first, the Lotto winner says he will not be leaving his job as he enjoys it too much. 

“I enjoy what I do for a living and I don’t plan on leaving my job,” he said.  

“I’m still in shock, but at the same time super excited and surprised. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that one day I would win the Lotto jackpot, as a regular Lotto and PowerBall player,” he added. 

Using his craft as an advantage, the winner said he knows which investments to tackle with his newfound fortune. 

“As an Investment Banker, I know the best investments and will invest a large portion of my winnings and pay off all my debt. I had already planned a vacation with a couple of my friends and the winnings will make this trip extra special and so much more worth it, ” he said. 


Ceo of ITHUBA Charmaine Mabuza congratulated the newest millionaire. 

“We are excited to see our players opting to play the National Lottery on the various platforms that are available to our players, from the comfort and safety of their homes. Our goal has always been to create convenient ways of helping our players to participate in their favourite National Lottery games,” she said. 

“In 2018, we launched the first-ever National Lottery Mobile App bringing modern-day convenience to our players,” said Mabuza.  

Apart from the Lotto, the PowerBall jackpot draw for Friday 20 August 2021 is estimated at a whopping R35 Million, so if you’re feeling lucky, give it a go and purchase a ticket.   

The live broadcast will take place tonight on E-TV at 21:00.
