UPDATE: The lottery roll puts the PowerBall jackpot in the new record of R190m


The R180m PowerBall jackpot record on Friday has been reversed and is now on a huge R190m.

Ithuba's lottery spokesman, Busisiwe Koloi, said that this is the largest amount available in the history of the South African lottery.

The PowerBall Plus lottery also rolled and is currently at R1m. All eyes will now be on Tuesday's PowerBall tie, she said, when the lucky tick could be thrown.

Meanwhile, the R28m jackpot previously reported as unclaimed, was claimed. The winner was given until February 13 to claim the winnings, or risk losing it.

The ticket would have been purchased at a Shoprite Checkers store in Sanlam Center in Cape Town.

In August of last year, a couple won the PowerBall jackpot of R145m, the TimesLive reported.

The winning numbers for Friday's PowerBall and PowerBall Plus draw are:

Powerball: 22, 30, 39, 41, 42 PowerBall: 11

PowerBall Plus: 04, 06, 21, 24, 47 Powerball: 08

* An earlier version of this article stated that the R28m jackpot had not been claimed. Ithuba Lottery has since pointed out that the jackpot was claimed. The article has been updated to reflect this.
