Last week we brought you a list of the biggest Lotto and PowerBall winners of all time.
When that list was released, there was a PowerBall jackpot that had yet to be claimed that would secure the winner the third biggest payout in PowerBall history.
The ticket purchased at a Spar in Groot Brakrivier, Western Cape, and has since been claimed.
According to IOL, the golden ticket holder is a 50-year-old construction worker who is now R141 million richer.
The man becomes the third richest PowerBall jackpot winner in South Africa after playing a ticket wager of just R105 via a Quick Pick selection method. He joins the R232 million winner from February 2019 and R145 million winner from August 2018.
The winner was on holiday in the Mossel Bay region with his wife when he bought the winning ticket and says buying the ticket was part of their plans that day. He says he hardly plays the National Lottery games but something on that day told him that he should play it and that it would be his lucky day.
The winner was on holiday in Mossel Bay? Here’s hoping he uses those winnings to enjoy some of our country’s other ‘gems’.
(That’s a joke, people of Mossel Bay – take a few deep breaths and relax.)
Both he and his wife clearly believe in fate and premonitions.
The winner’s wife says that a few weeks before her husband played, she had dreamt that she saw gold particles being sprinkled all over her husband. The following morning, she told the husband about the dream. She believes this was a sign from God that her husband will soon be showered with blessings.
She says she is glad she told her husband about the dream as it could have been hard for anyone to believe her premonition that he has won jackpot.
Sure. You do you.
The couple say they do not plan on making drastic changes to their lives because they prefer the quiet life. They will both continue working and plan to invest the money so that their children and grandchildren can have a secured future for generations to come.
Okay, you don’t actually have to keep working. If you invest, and throw around a little money living the high life, I’m sure you’ll be fine.
Congrats to the winner.
