The National Lottery said should the PowerBall jackpot be won this Friday, July 23, one or more lucky South African stands a once in a lifetime opportunity to walk away with the third highest PowerBall jackpot in the history of the South African National Lottery.

ITHUBA CEO, Charmaine Mabuza, said, “When we took over the operations of the National Lottery, we promised to offer life-changing jackpots and we are delivering just that.”

Mabuza said ITHUBA has paid out the highest jackpots and has created more winners and multi-millionaires in the history of the South African National Lottery.

The current PowerBall estimated jackpot is sure to make a huge difference in the life of one or more lucky winners. Not only is this the third highest PowerBall jackpot ever, but should the jackpot be won this Friday, the lucky winner will become the biggest winner of 2021 thus far.
