The life of the retired man from Rustenburg who won the Powerball Plus jackpot has just gotten a whole lot better. The PowerBall Plus jackpot from the June 28 draw brought in total winnings of R33 107 623 for the man in his seventies. The winning player told National Lottery Ithuba that he had been playing the lottery for nine years and that the most he had ever won was R80. The winner for this draw spent R30 on his winning ticket and decided to manually choose his winning numbers.

So what is his financial strategy? The winner said, "I am very thrilled. I'm going to build houses for my wife and child." I can say with certainty that winning this sum will significantly improve my life," he continued. The pensioner left the mining business. He now relaxes and watches TV most of the time. He stored his ticket safely at home till he could claim it after checking his ticket numbers online to discover he had won. Ithuba claims that all lottery winnings are tax-free.
