Free State woman won life changing money with Lotto Plus
Free State is a province of South Africa with remarkable landscapes and agriculture. The woman we are talking about was playing this game since the official launch - 17 years ago. Whenether she had some money to spare - she bought one or few more tickets. And guess what - now she's a millionaire.
She had so much luck. Her account is capable of buying private jet, but probably it's not what she's planning now. Winner selected winning numbers by herself only. She is very careful with tha every time. That day one ticket was purchased with R15. Usually she with husband spends abou R500 for tickets every month. Strangely, this jackpot was their first big win.
She told media how she realised, she's a millionaire:
"I found out about the winning ticket while standing in my kitchen and checking the Lotto Plus numbers from a text message on my phone. When I got to the 3rd correct number, I just started screaming, shaking and spinning around. I was unbelievably excited. I phoned my husband, but he couldn’t believe it either and said that I should make sure first. I then phoned the Ithuba office, who confirmed that I did in fact win."
Every winner needs some advices what to do with such a great money. As she says she never thought she would became another big winner. With her husband they were just regular, poor people. Because of that they received financial advises from Ithuba, as well as psychological and emotional counselling.
Now winners plan to invest most of the money. Thankfully they will be prepared for retirement. They always wanted to tour South Africa. Now they can, also have big plans for visiting Namibia and Malawi.
