A South African lottery player is sitting with a R10,9-million winning ticket that has not yet been claimed, National Lottery operator Gidani said on Thursday.
The ticket was bought in the Eastern Cape and notched up five winning numbers plus the bonus number in the November 3 draw, Gidani’s spokesperson Themi Tulwana said.
“While this winner has 365 days from the date of the draw to claim the prize, it would be great if it happened soon so he or she can have a fantastic festive season and an incredible 2008,” she said.
Since the lottery resumed on October 13, seven millionaires have been made, sharing more than R33-million between them.
The biggest winner so far was a Cape Town medical professional who scored R16,7-million in the draw on October 17.
“We are very happy with the way the lottery has gone in its first month and are looking forward to making lots more millionaires and helping many worthy causes,” said Tulwana.
More than 48-million tickets have been purchased around the country since the lottery resumed earlier this year.—Sapa
