About South Africa Lotto

South Africa's national lottery offers some of the highest jackpots and is now open to play online from anywhere in the world through the World Lottery Site and theLotter.

The opening draw took place in March 2000 to raise funds for government programs in Africa under the slogan - “'Tata Ma Chance, Tata Ma Millions.”

The jackpot always starts at R2 million and the record jackpot was set in January 2018 when one lucky lottery player banked an eye-watering R110 million which is more than $9 million USD.

South Africa Lotto offers 8 prize levels, boasts some of the best winning lottery odds on the plant, and has no set jackpot or rollover cap which makes it a firm favourite amongst world lottery players.

How to play South Africa Lotto

To play the official South Africa Lotto select six numbers from a guess range of 1-52. The lottery offers a bonus number that is chosen at the time of the draw from the same drum as the regular guess set and is counted for secondary prizes only.

All the selected six numbers must match the ones drawn to win the jackpot with the bonus number coming into play for the second, fourth, sixth, and eighth place prize divisions.

South Africa Lotto

Players get two chances each week to win with draws taking place every Wednesday and Saturday at 19:30 GMT. If you are playing online from outside South Africa, remember to calculate the time difference from the country you are playing.

Why not increase your chances of winning and enter with a systematic form? You can win multiple times and in more than one prize division on the same ticket, leading to bigger wins when your numbers prove lucky.

Can I play from outside South Africa?

Yes! While the SA Lotto is the official lottery of South Africa when you play with us, an official ticket will be purchased on your behalf in the country.

Once your ticket is purchased, it will be scanned and you will be able to view your ticket online and through the app, in time for the draw on Wednesday or Saturday.

If you're a winner, prizes will be deposited straight into your account after results are published. Jackpots may need to be collected in person, but we're sure that won't be a problem!
