Thousands of people have already registered their dreams to stand a chance of wining up to R50 000.

Ithuba Holdings, the official operator of the National Lottery have kicked off another Dream Census, running for the month of August across the country.

The Dream Census campaign encourages residents to tell Ithuba about their biggest dream.

The campaign took to Promenade Mall from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 August.

Within the first few hours hundreds of people had already signed up with long queues still waiting.

Dreams were digitally recorded and each participant received a t-shirt and lucky numbered ticket.

Every dream recorded enters into a draw where residents stand a chance of having their dream featured on television and other National Lottery marketing related activities.

Every day, a spot prize of R5 000 in prizes was given away. The main prize, however, is R50 000 towards your dream.

One resident who had recorded her dream said she was very excited about her chances of winning and did not want to tell People’s Post what her dream was, in fears of jinxing it.

Another resident confidently walked off saying this was already his money
