South Africa Lotto› South Africa Lotto
South Africa Lotto requires players to match six numbers correctly from a possible 52 to win the jackpot. A Bonus Ball is also drawn, providing a prize for those who match it with two main numbers and boosting prizes when matched along with three, four or five main numbers.
Lotto is drawn twice a week, on Wednesday and Saturday, offering chances to win in eight prize tiers, called divisions. If no one wins the jackpot, it rolls over and can continue to grow to large amounts, as there is no cap or limit in place. A fixed prize of R20 is awarded to players who match just two main numbers and the Bonus Ball.
