A lucky Gauteng winner has claimed the R15 639 327 Mother's Day jackpot as well as four prizes in the third division, worth a total of R41 400.

This makes him the second biggest Lotto millionaire. The top winner is a businessperson who won R16 353 580 on April 7.

The name of the man could not be disclosed because he was still deciding whether he wanted to go public with his fame.

Victor Dlamini, public affairs director for Lottery operator Uthingo, said: "The jackpot winner is very fortunate indeed. By winning an additional four prizes for five matching numbers, he will net a gigantic R15 680 727."

Last week's winning numbers were 13, 19, 24, 38, 39, 45, with the bonus number 7.

- Since the launch of the Lotto, about R80-million still remains unclaimed by punters.
