Durban Woman Wins Two Lottery Jackpots in a Month
A woman from Durban is celebrating a remarkable double win after scooping two jackpots in the space of a month. She is now more than R28 million richer after landing top prizes in both Daily Lotto and Lotto.
The first moment of fortune came at the end of January when she won R129,000 on Daily Lotto, but she followed it up with an even bigger payout on Wednesday 24 February. She matched all the Lotto numbers to pocket R28.2 million.
The lucky lady has now come forward to collect her winnings, and a few more details of her story have emerged. While she has decided to remain anonymous, it has been revealed that she is a retail worker in her 40s.
She spent R100 on her ticket, opting for a Quick Pick selection, and was overjoyed when she spoke to National Lottery operator Ithuba. She said she was looking forward to helping her family financially, helping out charitable causes and quitting work.
“I was excited to learn that I had won the lotto jackpot, especially because just four weeks ago I had won R129,000 from Daily Lotto,” said the winner.
“This is indeed my lucky year. With the money, I want to assist some family members who are struggling, donate to a charity that is close to my heart, and finally take an early retirement.”
The Lotto jackpot has now been won three times this year. Draws continue every Wednesday and Saturday night, and you can also take part in Plus 1 and Plus 2 at the same time.
