National Lottery Raffle
The South Africa National Lottery Raffle is a special draw that takes place several times a year. It launched on Friday 30th December 2016, with 1,560 lucky players winning guaranteed prizes ranging from R1,000 to one of 15 state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolets.
How to Play Raffle
Each player receives a unique code that is randomly generated through a quick play system. Tickets cost R20 each and players are welcome to purchase as many entries as they would like prior to the draw.
Raffle tickets go on sale 60 days before a draw. Sales end when the last raffle number is sold and the prizes will be paid out to those who match the winning codes, much like a traditional raffle.
Raffle Prizes and Odds of Winning
The number of prizes varies from draw to draw. In the most recent draw, on Saturday 30th December 2017, there were 25 Mini Cooper convertibles to be won as well as over R5 million in cash prizes. A full prize breakdown for the latest draw can be found below:
