Ithubu, National Lottery operators, put out a statement saying; “We congratulate our latest winner. Ithuba values its partnership with Absa Bank, where players have the convenience of playing any of their favourite lottery games directly through the Absa Banking app."
The lucky winner is a 69-year old recently retired Chatsworth resident who had been planning on spending quality time with his wife and grandchildren.
His winning numbers played in the draw were: 01, 29, 36, 40, 42, 45 and Bonus Ball 31.
He is the second jackpot winner from Durban to claim multi-million jackpots in less than two weeks. The first was a 72-year old Margate pensioner who claimed R100 million recently.
The Chatsworth winner had said that he is still letting the winning news sink in, and that he has no immediate plans on what he will be spending his newfound on.
