Daily Lotto

The Daily Lotto was introduced in 2019 by the National Lottery operator, Ithuba. It is a lottery game that offers daily jackpots and guaranteed winners.

The initial draw was held on Sunday the 10th of March at 9pm. and has been held every night since then at that time.

Daily Lotto is different from the lottery’s other games in several ways. With Daily Lotto, there is no jackpot rollover. If there is no jackpot winner, the jackpot money rolls down to the next reward level and is split among all players who matched four numbers.

For accurately matching sets of 2, 3, 4, or 5 numbers, there are four awards. The Daily Lotto estimated jackpots range from R100,000 and it depends on players involvement.

You can participate in the DAILY LOTTO in the following ways:

  2. Select your 5 (from 1 -36) numbers using a pen or pencil.
  3. Pay R3 for the ticket and if you purchase more than one ticket, you pay R3 for each game.
  4. Review your slip to confirm if the numbers in there are the correct ones.

How to Win Daily Lotto?

Daily Lotto has overall odds of 1 in 7.6 of winning a prize.

With the South African Daily Lotto, you can win rewards by matching your chosen numbers to the randomly chosen winning numbers. Unlike other lottery games, the Daily Lotto prize money must be won in every draw. This implies that there is a good chance you could win the jackpot without having to match all the numbers.

By matching two, three, four, or all five of the numbers drawn in the Daily Lotto game, you have the chance to win cash prizes. Prizes in this lottery are not predetermined. Instead, the amount of the cash prize is determined by the number of winners and the number of draw tickets sold.

50% of the proceeds from each R3 ticket purchase go toward the prize pool. The remaining money in the pot is then divided across the four reward categories, with a percentage going to each division’s winners.

There are no predetermined payouts for Daily Lotto prizes because they are all pari-mutuel. A guaranteed jackpot may occasionally be used, but it will always be disclosed through the official channels.

Daily Lotto Jackpot

You win the jackpot if all five numbers are selected on that day match. If there are multiple winners, you divide the reward money.

You have 365 days to claim your winnings if you are the lucky winner. You can collect cash winnings of R2,000 or less from any of the authorized lottery retailers in the nation. For prizes between R2,000 and R50,000, you must go to a South African post office to claim your winnings. If you’re fortunate enough to win anything more than R50,000, you’ll need to visit one of the Ithuba regional offices to collect your prize.
