South African Jackpot Winner Claims R232 Million

A week following the announcement that one of South Africa's biggest ever lottery jackpots had been won, the lucky winner has come forward to claim their prize.


Not much personal information about the winner is available, but we do know that they are a 57-year old blue collar worker from Cape Town. The winner decided to stay out of the public eye until they have had financial counselling.

The winner will also undergo physiological counselling that is provided by the South African Lottery; a service that is given to all winners who bag more than R50,000. Lottery winners sometimes develop feuds with their family and close friends who often seek loans or handouts.

Winners have 365 days to forward to claim any winnings after which the ticket expires and the prizes expire and cannot be claimed. Many people were worried that the winner of this jackpot had lost their ticket or were unaware that they had won, but luckily the winner eventually produced their winning ticket.

The winning numbers came in at 4, 18, 21, 26, 35 and the Powerball number was 5. The winning ticket was bought at a local OK supermarket.
