The winner, who is getting married in December, has big plans following his lucky streak. “A portion of the winnings will go towards our dream wedding and honeymoon, most probably at an exotic location, once the pandemic is over. I also plan on investing and buying shares in a telecommunications company with the balance of my winnings,” he said.

The winner used the QuickPick selection method and spent R105 on the winning ticket, which was purchased at the Super Spar, Silver Oaks Crossing Centre, in Pretoria.

“A couple of days after the draw I decided to check my PowerBall Plus ticket. When I realised that I had matched all six numbers, I immediately checked on the National Lottery website to see how many other players had won the PowerBall Plus jackpot. To my surprise, there was only one lucky winner and at that very moment I knew I was that one lucky winner,” he added.
