Lotto: biggest wins

Lotto, the first lottery to be introduced in South Africa is the most popular lottery in the country, with the number of participants being close to 82% of the entire population of the country! This is a game in which players choose six distinct numbers between one and fifty-two. In the draw, six numbered balls are picked without replacement from a set of fifty-two balls. Moreover, a bonus ball is drawn for those players who match five numbers. The player is entitled to an award, which increases for more number of matches, provided at least three numbers have been matched. In case all six numbers are matched, the jackpot is shared amongst the ones who have been able to match. If nobody can match all 6 numbers, the jackpot prize money is rolled over to the next draw. A high number of rollovers ensures a huge bounty that the next jackpot winner is going to win. This is the last place to know all about the Lotto biggest wins of all time, achieved by players who had their best stars on the draw day that changed their lives.
