The winner takes it all they say and the proud holder of the winning ticket from the latest PowerBall draw is a person in Pretoria. The PowerBall draw can only be won by one ticket‚ and latest winning ticket belongs to a Pretoria resident who is expected to smile home with R21.4 million PowerBall jackpot.
The PowerBall winning ticket was bought from Nyati Motors in Rosslyn‚ north of the capital Pretoria.
Ithuba spokesperson Zukiswa Nomnganga said on Thursday that the ticket-holder emerged as the only winner of the R21.4 million Powerball jackpot as the results came in on Tuesday evening‚ instantly making him the year’s third biggest PowerBall jackpot win.
So far, the biggest PowerBall jackpot winner this year was a player from Gauteng who smiled home with R42 million.
A total amount of R45-million was set on the table for grabs on Tuesday’s (12/04/2016) PowerBall and PowerBall Plus draws with both games carrying R20-million plus mega jackpots. During the draw, the PowerBall Plus jackpot was elusive once again as it rolled over and now lands at R26.4 million for Friday evening’s draw.
According to Nomnganga, PowerBall recently took over the most popular lottery game title from Lotto and has since recorded up to 14 jackpot winners since Ithuba took over the lottery 10 months ago. The Powerball Plus has also recorded three millionaire jackpot winners in the draws.
Still on the statistics‚ Ithuba has produced up to 50 millionaire jackpot winners across all lottery games since their take over‚ Nomnganga said. Lotto on the other hand has recorded 30 millionaires‚ Powerball 14‚ Lotto Plus four and PowerBall Plus three.
