A pensioner who is in his late 60s won a whopping R39m after buying a lotto ticket . . . a R7,50 Lotto Plus ticket to be exact. And now, he is richer than most people will ever see in their entire lives.
The man who hails from Limpopo, and is a father of five children, won his mega money in Saturday’s draw.
He spoke to News 24 about his winnings and just how happy and blessed he feels: “I am blessed beyond what words can express. The winnings will change my life beyond measure.”
The winnings will obviously change this man’s life, and that of his kids and family, for the better. At this point, it seems no one else knows of his winnings, besides his wife and children, , because with a lot of money comes family members that one might not even have been aware of before.
The man has plans with his money, he plans to send his kid(s) to school, for education. He also plans to give his kids a financial boost, while there are plans to improve his house and extend his farm.
About his win, the man said he had been playing the lotto since it was first introduced, and that on Saturday he just picked random numbers.
“I bought just one ticket on Saturday, and I randomly picked the numbers myself. I have been playing since the inception of the national lottery, and I didn’t think I would win, but I was excited when I found out,” the man said.
Wow congrats to this man, and his family. Life is about to change for the better for them, in a huge way!
