Not a regular lottery player, the winner says she only bought her tickets after she saw other players queuing for tickets. "On my way from work, I saw a long queue of people with bet slips and I knew they must be pursuing something big, even though I had no idea of what the jackpot prize was," she said.
She only bought a single R15 ticket from a small cafe, and manually selected her own lucky numbers. Speaking to the local lottery operator she said that she sometimes struggled to pay rent and would often go to her brother for help. She is now looking forward to owning her own home and also plans on splurging on a luxury car.
She also says that she is happy that she will be able to spend more time with her children. I am mostly grateful that this money will give me an opportunity to raise my children, to be able to take them to school and have the pleasure of preparing a scrumptious meal that they can enjoy when they get back from school."
