Cape Town - South African lottery operator Ithuba has announced that the R141 million Powerball winning ticket was purchased in Cape Town.
Bought at a Spar in Groot Brak, the ticket wager was made for a mere R105 at the Quick Pay section of the grocery store.
This makes for the third biggest jackpot winner in South Africa joining the R232 million winner in February and the R145 million winner in August last year.
On Monday, Ithuba confirmed that the ticket holder is yet to make contact with the National Lottery Operator to claim their winning ticket.
This is, however, not the only lottery winner for the week. On Wednesday, August 21 another person won R9 million in the Lotto Plus Jackpot after only spending R10 on their ticket wager.
