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.

This South Africa Lotto data includes all draws up to and including Saturday 18th August 2018. The last South Africa Lotto draw number was 1841.

South Africa Lotto History

In 2015, Ithuba took over the licence to operate lottery games in the country.
