The Powerball jackpot for Friday night is an estimated R118 million.

National Lottery, Ithuba said the jackpot has sky-rocketed to this amount after 18 consecutive roll-overs.

“We are over the moon to present South African players with the extraordinary opportunity to seize a life-altering sum,” Ithuba CEO Charmaine Mabuza said.

“Our dedication to delivering heart-pounding thrills while contributing to our nations greater good knows no bounds.”

Explaining the process, Mabuza said the winning numbers are not picked by a “human hand”.

“They are meticulously chosen during the Official Draw process by a Random Number Generator, ensuring absolute fairness and transparency,” she said.

“This process takes place with the utmost precision immediately after the ticket sales close at 8.30pm, sealing the fate of countless potential winners.”

Mabuza said the winning numbers, selected by the impartial Random Number Generator, are transformed into an enthralling TV Draw Show after 9pm.

“The thrill doesn’t stop there; it’s just the beginning. Winner results, including the numbers of winners and their life-changing share amounts, undergo rigorous calculations and verifications after the completion of the TV Draw show,” Mabuza said.

“These results are then meticulously published, unveiling the destinies of the fortunate few and the incredible wealth about to transform their lives.”
