South Africa Lotto
The South Africa Lotto offers attractive jackpots, combining an easy-to-play format with a national reputation that has made it one of Africa’s most popular lotto games.
The lotteries of South Africa have been in operation since 1984 with different lotteries vying for the top spot and contributing proceeds to a variety of national projects. The success of the South Africa Lotto since its establishment in 2000 prompted the Ithuba South Africa Lottery organization to launch the South Africa Powerball in 2009.
The South Africa Lotto highest jackpot was taken in February of 2003 when the R44.7 million ($US 5.7 million) prize was won by four lucky ticket holders.
To play the South Africa Lotto, select 6 numbers from a guess range of 1-49. The bonus number is selected during the draw and counted towards the secondary prizes only.
