An eligible bachelor from Cape Town just won R38 million!

Lotto Powerball bachelor Granny Lotto win

A Cape Town bachelor, who has chosen to remain anonymous, recently won the Powerball Plus jackpot but is planning to live life as simply as possible.


A 35-year-old bachelor from Cape Town got his lucky break when he won a staggering R38 million Lotto Powerball Plus jackpot. He returned to the retailer where he chose his numbers to have his ticket checked and was told to report to the Ithuba offices.

“I went to the same retailer where I placed my bet two days after the draw to check if my ticket won anything and to my surprise, I was told to go to the Ithuba offices. I knew at that moment that I had won but I wasn’t sure how much it was,” he said.

The anonymous bachelor regularly spends around R150 a week on Lotto tickets. He confirmed to iol that he had played with the full intention of walking away the winner on September 21. He said that he used affirmations for abundance whenever he played, hoping it would help him win. He could not believe his luck when his dream was realised and he finally won.

“I am still in disbelief as I have never won from playing any of the Lottery games, and my first ever win is the highly sought after jackpot,”

His father is the only person he has told about his winning as he trusts him deeply. He doesn’t plan on telling anyone else about his win and once things settle down again, plans to use some of his winnings on travelling and enjoying the great outdoors.

He is dedicated to his job and plans to continue working and playing the Lotto.
