A retired man from the Western Cape has just become the latest LOTTO jackpot winner, securing a staggering R42.9 million in the LOTTO draw 2389 held on November 25, 2023.
The winning ticket was purchased for just R80 at a local retail store. This retiree’s winning approach combined personally selected numbers with a quick pick selection, making him a consistent participant in the twice-weekly draws. Before his monumental win, his largest prize was a modest R988. A man of deep faith, he attributes his astonishing windfall to divine intervention and has expressed his heartfelt intention to give back to his local community and church.
Upon realising his new reality as an instant multi-millionaire, the winner initially experienced shock. However, he soon found solace in a glass of milk, allowing the magnitude of his win to truly sink in. Despite his sudden stroke of luck, he remains grounded with plans to buy homes for his siblings and children, ensuring a safe and secure future for his grandchildren. This decision underscores his strong family values and desire to make a lasting, positive impact.
Charmaine Mabuza, CEO of ITHUBA, shares in the excitement, “We are overjoyed to be part of another life-changing event, especially for someone as generous as our latest winner. His dedication to his family and community is truly inspiring. We are always moved to see our winners using their windfalls in such wise and meaningful ways.”
