National lottery operator, Ithuba, says the winner of Tuesday night’s R232 million Powerball jackpot is yet to claim the money.
The jackpot had rolled over 24 times.
The highest-ever Lotto jackpot to be won in South Africa so far was R145million, won by a man from Secunda in Mpumalanga in August 2018.
Ithuba spokesperson Khensani Mabuza says the winning ticket was bought in the Western Cape.
“We’re still waiting for our winner to obviously come through and claim their ticket. We are urging all of our winners who participated in yesterday’s (Tuesday’s) draw to check the draw results so that we can see who the ticket belongs to. But we don’t have any information on who the actual winner is at this point.”
