Five numbers was all it took to change the life of a Nelspruit man! Our Tuesday 29 May 2018 PowerBall Division 2 prize winner had this to say about his exciting win of R121,906.70:
“I only spent R30 on my ticket, and that is the highest amount I usually spend to play a single draw”.
The winner also plays LOTTO and PowerBall regularly, often spending around R200 a month on tickets. This time around his luck paid off!
He was at a shop when he found out he in fact held a winning ticket. He told his family about his win, put his ticket in a bag for safekeeping and carried this bag with him everywhere, until he could visit an Ithuba Regional Office to make his claim.
He has yet to decide how he plans to use his money, but one key point he raised was his intent to assist his family however he can, before investing the rest of his money. He is extremely delighted to have won, but also confesses that he has always believed he would win one of the National Lottery games – which is why he has kept playing.
Currently employed, and being a careful spender, our winner plans to keep working – simultaneously expressing gratitude of receiving a sum of money he feels will make “a very huge difference” in his life.
He enjoys fishing in his spare time, and hopefully this win will afford him the opportunity to spend more days by the riverside with friends and family.
