South African lotteries: review 2020.02.24-03.01

Hi everyone!
Hope you all are doing well! For us, it was a great week preparing the results of the lotteries across South Africa last week (24 February-1 March). Some of these were really exciting. Below, we will present the latest trends there.

Lotto

There were two draws last week (Wednesday, 26 February and Saturday, 29 February). Unfortunately, no one won the jackpot (6 numbers) any of these days. However, there were some great results on both draws. The second best prize worth either R97,311.3 or R125,715.7 (5 numbers + BONUS) was acquired by 2 players (1 on Wednesday and 1 on Saturday). The chance to win prizes from R20 started from 1 in 96 - so we wish everyone best of luck while playing next week.
