46-year-old Gauteng man won the lottery on the night of 21 March 2018 in Lotto Plus 1 game. He drives the truck for a living. Very often he spends all nights and days just driving so he doesn't have a very comfortable place to sleep at all. But why he decided to sleep in the car when he won R9 million?

He acknowledged his win when watching SABC 2 channel. He watched the television only to check his ticket numbers this evening. He was in great disbelief when he realized he is a millionaire now after matching all six numbers in the Lotto Plus 1 game. It took some time to calm down after this information.

Minutes after the happy draw, the man started to think about how to hide the ticket? He wanted very much to make it safe before claiming the price in the lottery office. So he decided to hide the ticket in the car as a safe place before he is able to claim. Just after hiding the ticket when he was already in the house ready to go to sleep, he started to think about a ticket. Is it really safe? Eventually decided to get in the car and sleep in it whole night guarding the winning Lotto Plus 1 ticket.

The winner always dreamed of building a big house to accommodate his family in comfort. This dream was not possible to come true with his truck driver salary. However after winning National Lottery , now he can make this real. He is going also to invest some money in his children and want to open a business.
