Powerball South Africa is the newest member of the Powerball lotteries, quickly establishing itself as more than a worthy one since 2009. The lotto family DNA is definitely there – two weekly draws, a massive 3,000,000 South African rands (ZAR) starting jackpot, which rolls over until it’s won and 9 prize levels with great winning odds!
The record jackpot of 102,000,000 ZAR, was won in 2011 by a single ticket and proving the game means business. Unlimited rollovers only add to the excitement, so get your tickets or join a Powerball SA Syndicate to enter these great draws – you could become a part of the next record or even better – the jackpot winner!

And even better – why not just enter the draws with your lucky numbers and wait for that life-changing phone call or e-mail!
