The winner, from Florida in Gauteng, spent R22.50 on a quick pick.

“We congratulate our latest multi-millionaire, and urge them to come forward and claim their winnings,” said Ithuba’s CEO Charmaine Mabuza.

“On this note we also urge all other players to continue to check their tickets, as there are a number of unclaimed tickets due to expire.

“Winning tickets are valid for 365 days from the draw date,” said Mabuza.

This win comes hot on the heels of another Johannesburg-based winner who walked away with R28 million from the May 13 draw.
