In an extraordinary stroke of luck, a man from Bloemfontein turned a mere R15 into a staggering jackpot win of over R23 million in the PowerBall PLUS draw on 20 June.

Despite being employed as a temporary worker, he defied the odds by selecting his own numbers instead of relying on the quick-pick method.

An Anonymous Winner’s Story


The fortunate winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, revealed that he kept the winning ticket valued at R23,044,341.60 safely under his mattress until he could claim his prize at the offices of Ithuba, the national lottery operator.

The ticket was purchased from an independent retailer in Lindley, Free State, according to Ithuba.

Overwhelmed with Gratitude

Expressing his disbelief, the PowerBall PLUS winner shared his excitement at the moment when the numbers on his ticket aligned perfectly with the winning combination.

He described this life-changing opportunity as a once-in-a-lifetime event and expressed immense gratitude.


Not only will his own life be transformed, but the lives of his loved ones as well.

A Surprising Win for a Temporary Worker

Charmaine Mabuza, the CEO of Ithuba, emphasized the remarkable nature of the win, particularly considering the winner’s occupation as a temporary worker.

The fact that he chose his own numbers rather than relying on automated quick-picks added to the astonishment surrounding his victory.

Mabuza hailed his determination and unwavering hope, stating that this windfall would propel him into a realm of newfound financial freedom.



The Bloemfontein man’s PowerBall PLUS jackpot win stands as a remarkable tale of luck and hope against the odds.

By opting for manual number selection and winning over R23 million, he has not only secured his own future but also brightened the lives of his loved ones.

This story serves as a reminder of the life-changing potential of the lottery and the extraordinary opportunities it can present.
