2 min read

Everyone living in South African who has taken the Covid-19 vaccination by the end of the year will stand a chance of winning cash prizes of up to R100 000 in a lucky draw totalling R2million.

The special lottery is managed by the DG Murray Trust, with the endorsement of the National Department of Health.

The DG Murray Trust notes on its website that the purpose of the lucky draw for cash prizes is to encourage people in South Africa aged 12 and older to come forward for the Covid-19 vaccination.

Several cash prizes up for grabs

One of five prizes of R100,000 (one hundred thousand Rand) each
One of 50 prizes of R10,000 (ten thousand Rand) each
One of 1,000 prizes of R1,000 (one thousand Rand) each.

How many winners will there be in total?

There are 1,055 prizes in total with 211 winners issued in each weekly draw and the weekly prizes are.

1 x R100 000
10 x R10,000
200 x R1,000

Everyone who has been vaccinated in South Africa against Covid-19 before the dates of the draws and no later than 31 December 2021 are eligible for the draw. 

“Their details need to have been captured on the EVDS system in time for each draw or, in the case of the final draw, by 25 January 2022. A small proportion of records are paper-based and for that reason sufficient time is allowed to enable back-capturing of records of vaccinations up to and including until 31 December 2021,” the organisation said.

Entry to the draw is automatic and requires no action, payment or delivery other than having received at least one Covid-19 vaccination.

Information about the lucky draw prizes will be communicated through public radio, as well as through social media and other media platforms.

Five lucky draws for the prizes will be held between 1 December 2021 and 25 January 2022 to identify prize winners. The planned dates for the weekly lucky draws to take place are on Fridays 10, 17, 24 and 31 December 2021. The final lucky draw will take place on 25 January 2022.
