UPDATE: Lotto rollover puts PowerBall jackpot at new record high of R190m

Friday's record-high R180m PowerBall jackpot has rolled over and now stands at a whopping R190m.

Ithuba Lottery spokesperson Busisiwe Koloi said this is the highest amount up for grabs in the South African lottery's history.

The PowerBall Plus lottery also rolled over and currently stands at R1m. All eyes will now be on Tuesday's PowerBall draw, she said, when the lucky ticket could be played.

Meanwhile, the R28m jackpot previously reported to be unclaimed, has been claimed. The winner was given until February 13 to claim the winnings, or risk losing it.

The ticket was reportedly purchased at a Shoprite Checkers store in Cape Town's Sanlam Centre.

In August last year, a couple won the R145m PowerBall jackpot, TimesLive reported.

The winning numbers from Friday's PowerBall and PowerBall Plus draw are:

Powerball: 22, 30, 39, 41, 42 PowerBall: 11

PowerBall Plus: 04, 06, 21, 24, 47 Powerball: 08

*A previous version of this article stated that the R28m jackpot had not been claimed. Ithuba Lottery has since pointed out that the jackpot was claimed. The article has been updated to reflect this.
