South Africa PowerBall Winners

South Africa PowerBall jackpots roll to the next draw if there is no top prize winner and, as there is no jackpot cap in place, repeated rollovers have resulted in some colossal jackpot wins. The biggest South Africa PowerBall jackpots are as follows:

R102 million won on 3rd June 2011

This jackpot, which is the largest in South African lottery history, was won on a ticket bought in the Free State province. However, the winner never came forward to claim their prize.
