The South African National Lottery
is operated by Ithuba, to whom the licence was granted in 2015. The lottery is regulated by the National Lottery Commission, and was established in 2000.
Lottery tickets may be bought only by people of at least 18 years of age.

Lotto is the most popular type of gambling in South Africa but Powerball has been the faster-growing for last years due to its high payouts.Powerball
launched in October 2009 and has become one of South Africa’s most popular lotteries due to the large jackpots it often offers due to rollovers. In addition to creating tens of thousands of lottery winners each week, this game has been instrumental in providing funds for good causes; you can read more about the work of the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund here.Powerball
draws take place on Tuesday and Friday evenings at 9.00pm and details of the winning numbers and prize breakdown are available online the following morning. Tickets can be purchased in advance for up to ten draws covering a five-week period - i.e. one or two draws per week for up to five weeks.
If the jackpot is not won then the funds will continue to roll over until there is a jackpot winner. Winning tickets are valid for 365 days after the draw and prizes are paid out as a tax-free lump sum.Powerball
differs from Lotto and Lotto Plus in that it is a double matrix game requiring players to choose five main numbers from a pool of 45 plus a single secondary number from a separate ball pool of 1 to 20. Unlike other lotto games which use a ball from the secondary pool as a ‘Bonus Ball’, the secondary number - or Powerball – is an integral part of the game. In order to win the jackpot, a player must successfully match all five main numbers and the Powerball. A player can select their own numbers or choose the Quick Pick option which provides the player with a selection of randomly generated numbers.
The National lottery was introduced to South Africa on 11 March 2000. At the time it was run by Uthingo.POWERBALL
Players buy tickets with their choice of six different numbers between 1 and 52; there is provision for random numbers to be generated automatically for those who do not wish to choose, known as 'Quick Pick'.
In the draw, six numbered balls are drawn without replacement from a set of 52 balls numbered from 1 to 52. A further Bonus Ball is also drawn, which affects only players who match five numbers.
Prizes are awarded to players who match at least three of the six drawn numbers, with prizes increasing for matching more of the drawn numbers. All players who match all six drawn numbers win equal shares of the jackpot; the chance of doing so is 1 in 20,358,520. If four, five, or six balls are matched, the relevant prize is divided equally between all who match that many balls. If no player matches all six numbers, the jackpot is added to that of the next Lotto draw—a Rollover.
The entry fee to the LOTTO draw is set at R5.00 per board.
The draw is conducted on Wednesdays and Saturdays on SABC 2 at 21:00.LOTTO PLUS
LOTTO PLUS is exactly the same as LOTTO, but gives the player a second chance to win. When buying a LOTTO ticket, the player must pay an extra R2.50 per board to enter the LOTTO PLUS draw. Odds are the same, while prizes are usually slightly lower.
The draw is conducted on Wednesdays and Saturdays on SABC 2 at 21:00.
