ALMOST R60 million is waiting to be won in tomorrow’s PowerBall

draw and Saturday’s Lotto draw, lottery operator Gidani has said.

“Both the PowerBall and Lotto draws are estimated at R29 million

each,” says Gidani spokesperson Thembi Tulwana said.

“The combined R58 million prize for Lotto and PowerBall is an

exciting prospect for players as winning the prizes will be life


Tulwana says with jackpots of this magnitude there is also the

possibility of the games producing numerous millionaires in one go.

On February 7 last year, the Lotto produced 18 instant millionaires

in one draw.

So far the Lotto has created 935 millionaires, while PowerBall has

produced four, says Tulwana.
