Hi everyone!
Hope you all are doing well! What a week it was… Some events in the lotteries across South Africa last week (17-23 February) were really exciting. Below, we will present the latest results and trends.

Lotto

There were two draws last week (Wednesday, 19 February and Saturday, 20 February). Unfortunately, no one won the jackpot (6 numbers) any of these days. However, we are really happy for the lucky one who managed to get the best result last week. On Saturday's draw, the second best prize worth R102,589.8 (5 numbers + BONUS) was acquired by one player. The chance to win prizes from R20 started from 1 in 96 - best of luck for everyone playing and gambling next week.
