Hi everyone!
Hope you are doing well! We are happy to share the results of the main lotteries in South Africa which took part last week (2 March-8 March). Some interesting trends can be surely spotted here!

Lotto

There were two draws last week (Wednesday, 4 March and Saturday, 7 March). Similarly as last week, no one won the jackpot (6 numbers) across both draws. However, there were still some great results. One of the players scored the 2nd best combination (5 numbers + BONUS) on the game which took place on Saturday. This prize was worth R113,382.7! Overall, the chance to win prizes in this lottery (at least R20) was 1 in 96 - it would be a good idea to consider playing next week.

Powerball Plus

Powerball Plus draws were set on the same days as Powerball last week: Tuesday (3 March) and Friday (6 March). There were also no winners of the jackpot (5 numbers + POWERBALL) across both draws. But some moments were enjoyable: for example, on Tuesday’s draw, 3 players won R64,209.3 (the second best prize for 5 correct numbers) each and on Friday, 1 player won R221,599.2. The probability to win these second best prizes was exactly the same as in the original version of Powerball - 1 in 1,286,062.
