The SA PowerBall lottery is honoring the prize money claimed by a lucky player who has won the jackpot prize money. The lottery officials were eagerly waiting for the winner to show up and claim her prize money. The draw for the game had taken place more than 30 days back but despite the player winning the jackpot prize never made an appearance.
Therefore, the SA PowerBall officials were eager to meet with the player and hand over the prize money to her. The officials have confirmed that the draw for the particular game had taken place on Tuesday, July 27, 2021.
The officials have revealed that from the particular draw, the player ended up winning prize money worth R158 million. It is one of the largest prizes that has ever been won by a player in a jackpot for the SA PowerBall lottery.
The player finally contacted the lottery officials and went through the details in order to come up and claim the prize money. The player informed the officials that she really considered herself as one of the most blessed lottery players in the entire world.
She stated things were turning really bad for her when she ended up winning prize money. The player told the officials that she had lost her job back in March and it was something she had never expected in her entire life.
But, the pandemic has impacted every part of the world, and due to that, the office she worked for ended up getting shut down. The company initially downsized employees and luckily not one of them. However, the company was not able to recover from the major losses it had incurred during the pandemic, and thus, it shut down.
The player stated that since then, she was unemployed and was doing whatever she could to find a job. However, the entire country is currently facing a financial and economic crisis, and jobs are very scarce.
The player stated that all this time, she had been using her savings and they were also about to run out. She had to shed off so many things in order to manage her finances as per her savings. However, there was one thing she did not shed off and that was purchasing lottery tickets for the SA PowerBall Lottery.
Finally, her dedication paid off and she ended up winning the jackpot prize money. The numbers that were drawn for the jackpot prize were 29-28-15-12-5, and the Powerball number was 14. The player matched all the numbers and won the jackpot prize money.
The player informed the officials she had purchased her R158 million winning ticket from the ABSA banking application, which cost her just R15.
