Someone living in Mpumalanga is walking around with a winning Powerball ticket in their pocket. They spent a whole R20,00 in it and even chose the numbers themselves.

According to the Public Relations Manager, the ticket was bought at Evander Dienstasie, 1 Rotter Dam Road, Evander, Mpumalanga.

The exact amount is R145,469,799.30 and from the date of the draw, the winner has a full year to come forward and claim the prize money. According to reports, this mega-jackpot was the highest in Powerball history.

“Because it is such a significant amount that has been won‚ the person would need to get in touch with us and as soon as they get to the offices of the national lottery‚ they would be offered financial advice and some psychological assistance as well. As you can imagine‚ R145-million is a lot of money and a life-changing thing as well.” – Naledi Masopha, Public Relations Manager, Ithuba.
