Retired people won the lottery.
The Durban man became a millionaire after taking R35.1 million home from his R100 stake.
The Chatsworth guy is second in KwaZulu-Natal to become a millionaire in less than two weeks after winning the Lotto Plus 1 jackpot following Wednesday’s draw.
The pensioner is a recently retired salesman who is said to be a devoted family man who has just begun to enjoy time with his wife, children and grandchildren.
“This is really unexpected. I’m really surprised,” said a 69-year-old man.
“It’s December, so it’s just the right time to start all the festivals.
“As I just knew, I need time to sink this. I don’t have a major immediate plan for my prize.”
The National Lottery operator Itsuba said in a statement Saturday that the tickets were purchased via the Absa Banking app.
The winner used the quick pick selection.
Winning numbers were 01, 29, 36, 40, 42, 45, and 31 bonus balls.
