Last week, Ithuba urged the winner to come forward to claim their winnings at their nearest Ithuba office.

Ithuba CEO Charmaine Mabuza congratulated the winner.

Mabuza said winners who receive winnings of R50 000 and above receive free trauma counselling from professional psychologists, and financial advice from accredited financial advisers, at no cost.

Ithuba recently said it had millions of rand in unclaimed prizes, adding that National Lottery tickets remained valid for up to 365 days from the date of the draw.
