With only hours to go until the PowerBall draw on Friday night, Mzansi could well be welcoming its latest multi-millionaire.
But to win, you need to play – and here’s HOW.
Friday’s PowerBall jackpot stands at a whopping R135 million while the PowerBall Plus is another R9 million.
The PowerBall and PowerBall Plus draws will take place on Friday, 25 November from 20:58.
The PowerBall jackpot draw required players to pick five main numbers from 1 to 50 and one ‘PowerBall’ number from 1 to 20 for an entry fee of R5.00 per board.
Draws take place every Tuesday and Friday.
The record prize for any lottery game in South Africa came in the PowerBall when one winner scooped an incredible R232 131 750.69 in the draw held on 19 February 2019.
PowerBall Plus is exactly the same as PowerBall, but gives players a second chance to win.
When buying a PowerBall ticket, players can pay an extra R2.50 per board to enter the PowerBall Plus draw.
Odds are the same, while prizes are usually slightly lower.
It was introduced on 28 November 2015 by the National Lottery of South Africa.
