Biggest Powerball Winner
As there are no restrictions on the Powerball jackpot, top prize funds not won will roll forward to the following draw. By 3rd June 2011 the jackpot had reached an amazing R102,016,595 before being won by a single ticket holder. This jackpot win remains the largest amount ever won on Powerball.

- A lucky mother of two from the Western Cape successfully matched the winning Powerball combination to win a R91 million jackpot on the 12th February 2010.
- In July 2013 another ticket purchased in the Western Cape, this time by a 29 year old man, won its lucky owner a R69.5 million fortune.
