Durban – Powerball was guaranteed R100million on Friday after a 16th rollover, national lottery operator Ithuba said.
Powerball Plus was guaranteed at R40m as he rolled for the 15th time.
General manager Charmaine Mabuza said there had not been a jackpot winner on the two games over the past week.
“We are so excited to offer another life changing jackpot for our players. If the PowerBall R100m jackpot is won on Friday, April 30, 2021, one or more lucky South Africans will win the biggest jackpot won that year. “
In October last year, a grandfather from Bloemfontein won the R121m PowerBall jackpot.
The winner said: “I don’t intend to continue working, I have worked enough and I am grateful that I have the opportunity to retire sooner than expected, without worrying about finances. My wife, however, aspires to complete her degree, and I swear to support her on this point.
Powerball’s biggest win to date was a massive R2 million in February 2019.
