Johannesburg - The "winner" of the R91m powerball jackpot interviewed by newspapers over the weekend is a phoney, Powerball chairperson Bongani Khumalo said on Tuesday.

Khumalo said the real winner was a 43-year-old wife and mother of two teenagers who ran a medium-sized business.

She and her husband were oblivious of the media attention the phoney winner was getting, said Khumalo.

The woman and her husband had not told anyone about their fortune.

Khumalo said they did not plan to drastically change their lives.

The winner was a first-time player. After discovering her victory, she and her husband had quietly booked themselves into a hotel.
