Pretoria - A Pretoria woman who has worked as a domestic worker for 30 years has quit her job after winning R70 873 741.30 in the Powerball PLUS draw.
The single mother of one, played the winning ticket at her local Shell Garage and spent only R7.50 picking her own numbers.
Speaking to ITHUBA, she explained that she initially thought only four numbers that she played had won. It was only after she told her employer that she had won with four numbers that her employer made her aware that she had in fact won the big jackpot in the 5 September 2019 draw.
She says she immediately rushed back to the garage where the cashier advised her to write her name and ID number on the back of her winning ticket and go to the offices of ITHUBA to claim her winnings.
Sharing her life story, she says she was drowning in debt as she is the sole bread winner in her household.
