South African lotteries: review 2020.04.06-12

Hi everyone!
We hope that you had a great Easter weekend! As the situation and communications remain uncertain worldwide, it’s good to know that most lotteries can be played without even leaving your house. We will keep posting our weekly updates - this time, let’s check the results in South Africa from 6 to 12 April.


There were two draws live (Wednesday, 8 April and Saturday, 11 April). One player landed the jackpot prize on the Saturday’s game - congratulations on winning R10,546,013! The chances to win any prizes in this lottery (i.e. at least R20) start at 1 in 72 - why not try your luck next week? Given the history of results, it is really likely to make it to the solid win!

South African lotto: review 2020.04.06-12 Powerball

Powerball results were announced twice last week: these took place on Tuesday (7 April) and Friday (10 April). Similarly as a few weeks before, there were no winners of the main jackpot (5 numbers plus POWERBALL) across any of these draws. However, 5 players (2 more than the week before) got the 2nd best combination (5 numbers) across both draws last week. The prize for this one was worth either R110,262.3 or R422,536.0 each.

Powerball Plus

Powerball Plus draws were set on the same days as Powerball last week: Tuesday (7 April) and Friday (10 April). There were also no winners of the jackpot (5 numbers + POWERBALL) across both draws. The results for the 2nd best prize (5 correct numbers) looked better: on Tuesday’s draw, 4 players won R49,960.2 each and on Friday the prize of R94,475.9 was received by 2 players each. The probability to win these prizes was the same as in the original Powerball - 1 in 1,286,062.

Lotto Plus 1

Lotto Plus 1 was on air on Wednesday (8 April) and Saturday (11 April). We’re happy to announce that these draws were particularly successful for one of the players last week - on Saturday, the jackpot prize, worth R6,304,858.8, was acquired. The chance of getting this was 1 in 20,358,520 - well done!

Lotto Plus 2

Finally, Lotto Plus 2 was live on the same days as Lotto Plus 1. The results of this game were not that well as the ones of the counterpart, yet there were some exciting moments to share! Although the jackpot was not received, 1 player received the 2nd best prize (for 5 numbers + BONUS correctly). This one was worth R125,120.0 and the chance to win it was 1 in 3,393,087. Also, 53 players received the 3rd best prize (for 5 numbers correctly) which was worth either R3,320.2 or R3,626.6 - depending on a draw day. The chance of getting any of these was the same - 1 in 75402.
Congrats once again and see you all next week! Take care and best of luck.
