KwaZulu-Natal Player Wins R44 Million Lotto Jackpot

A father of seven won the Lotto jackpot worth R44 million and is hoping to build a secure future for his family.


The winning numbers for the Wednesday, 12 July draw were 01, 38, 52, 14, 04, 29 and 11. The KwaZulu-Natal-based player bought the lucky ticket through the Standard Bank app.

After his home was affected by flooding, it seems like winning this jackpot will turn his life around. The winner also intends to use this money to invest in his children’s education. 

But this isn’t the first time the player takes home a prize.  A few years ago, he won a substantial prize worth R340 000. This time, he’s hoping to use the latest winnings to build a safe and secure home for his family.

The winner shared that he’s “beyond grateful for this incredible stroke of luck and the overwhelming support of the National Lottery.“

“Winning this life-changing amount will enable me to build a legacy for my family, something I had only dreamt of. I want to provide them with a stable and secure home, ensuring their safety and well-being,” he continued.

Charmaine Mabuza, CEO at Ithuba, said: “We are overjoyed to witness another life-changing moment with the national lottery. This latest winner's story reaffirms our commitment to offering opportunities that bring positive change to people's lives. We commend the winner for his responsible play and inspiring dedication to securing a brighter future for his family through education and safe housing.”
