Pretoria man wins R25m in Powerball lottery
A Pretoria man in his 50s has won R25m and change from the Powerball Plus jackpot.
The winning ticket was purchased at Pick ‘n Pay in Pretoria and the winner bagged R25,287,948.10 in Friday's draw.
According to Ithuba, the elated winner says this is his best December ever.
He does not recall winning anything before this life-changing jackpot.
The winner has plans to extend his current home for rental income and acquire a house in the suburbs.
He intends to invest the rest of his winnings to ensure financial growth and the win enables him to comfortably retire, marking a new chapter in his life.
