National Lottery Raffle

The National Lottery Raffle is an exciting game that gives players the chance to win both cash and luxury non-cash prizes simply by having their unique ticket number drawn from a pool of entries, rather than having to match numbered balls as in a traditional lottery. Raffle draws are operated by ITHUBA, the same organisation that runs games like Lotto and Powerball, but are independent of the existing lottery draws.

Home Sweet Home Raffle 2018

The ‘Home Sweet Home’ raffle will take place on 29th December at 20:30 SAST and will offer winners the chance to buy a new home worth R2 million!

See the Results page soon after the draw takes place to see if you are a winner.

How to Play

Tickets can be purchased from authorised retailers at a cost of R20, R25 or R50, and will be available to purchase for at least 60 days prior to each draw.

Each raffle ticket has a unique, randomly generated code printed on it, with prize-winners selected from the pool of tickets entered. For this reason, the prizes for each draw will always be won — it is not possible for prizes to roll over like in regular lotteries. Players can choose the number of raffle tickets they would like to purchase, but they cannot specify the numbers that will be printed on their tickets. Sales close when the last available raffle code has been purchased.

The following table shows the prizes you can win in the draw on Saturday 29th December 2018. Six winners will be awarded R2 million to buy a dream home and another 50 players will receive R10,000 each.
