The Lotto jackpots keep rising to record highs.

The total estimated value for the PowerBall and PowerBall PLUS jackpots for Tuesday’s draw on July 27 is estimated at R178 Million.

The PowerBall estimated jackpot is at a record-breaking R160 million and the PowerBall PLUS estimated jackpot is at a cool R18 million.

Should the PowerBall jackpot be won this Tuesday, one or more lucky players will become the biggest winner for 2021 thus far, and walk away with the second highest PowerBall jackpot in the history of the South African National Lottery.

This year the National Lottery has created over 60 million winners across all games since the beginning of 2021 and R1,8 billion has been paid out in total winnings.

The CEO of ITHUBA, Charmaine Mabuza, said as the operator of the country’s favourite game, they are excited to be able to offer life changing jackpots like these and hope that this is something that will surely lighten the mood, even amid the uncertainty the country is facing.

“The prospect of being able to change someone’s life in the times we are living in is truly fulfilling and this is what ITHUBA set out to do when we were awarded the license in 2015- to change the lives of ordinary citizens for the better,” said Mabuza.

As a convenient and safe method of playing the National Lottery games, people are encouraged to use the National Lottery digital platforms.

Players can purchase their tickets from the National Lottery website using the National Lottery Mobile App, or the following banks; FNB, ABSA, Nedbank and Standard Bank.

Winners of R50 000 and more receive extensive financial advice as well as trauma counselling from qualified psychologists, to help them deal with their new financial circumstances. These advisory services come at no cost to the winner.

The live broadcast of the PowerBall draw will take place on Tuesday on E-TV at 9 pm. In case you miss the live draw show the PowerBall draw results will be available on the National Lottery website:; social media pages; across print and digital media; as well as in retail stores.
