Lotto winner claims R87-million


Johannesburg, 18 March 2015 - National lottery operator Gidani says more than R80-million hasn't been claimed over the past year. They also suggest signing your ticket to avoid any family disputes if you happen to win.

JOHANNESBURG – One lucky person in Limpopo is very happy.

Lottery operator Ithuba says a man has finally claimed last week&39;s Powerball jackpot.

It’s understood he bought his winning ticket at a petrol station in Mokopane.

The prize is worth a whopping R87-million.

Ithuba says it&39;s validated the ticket, but the winner will only get his money, once he&39;s met with officials.

It&39;s the fourth biggest cash prize in the history of South Africa&39;s lottery.
