The estimated Powerball jackpot for Tuesday night’s draw is R67 million.

The National Lottery Operator Ithuba confirmed that no one had bagged the guaranteed R60 million Powerball jackpot on September 3.

According to Ithuba CEO Charmaine Mabuza, the national lottery has created over 74 million winners across all games since the beginning of 2021, and paid over R2,3 billion in total winnings.

“This includes the second-highest PowerBall jackpot in the history of the South African National Lottery, the R158 million PowerBall jackpot from the draw that took place on Tuesday 27 July 2021.”

It was a Godsend for the winner, an unemployed North West mother who had lost her job due to the Covid-19 pandemic. She planned on visiting Durban for the first time for a seaside vacation and building her dream home.

The last winner of the Powerball Plus draw won R13 million but according to Ithuba declined any publicity.

The winning ticket for the August 31 draw was purchased on the Standard Bank banking app by a winner who spent R45 on the ticket, using the Quick Pick selection method to choose the winning numbers - 9, 16, 19, 29, 46 and PowerBall number 18.
