South Africa Lotto is played every Wednesday and Saturday night, with Powerball being drawn on Tuesday and Friday. Tickets are available for both either in person from any authorised retailer throughout the country or online from anywhere you are in the world using a lottery concierge service.
Play South African Lotteries Online
Playing South Africa Lotto or Powerball online is easy, safe and secure. You will be taken through to a lottery concierge service where you will pick your numbers or use the Quick Pick option to generate a random selection. Once ordered, the service will enlist a locally-based agent to purchase your entries, scan them and send you a copy. The agent will also commence the claims procedure should you win a prize.
Lotto draws take place on Wednesday and Saturday at 21.30 SAST and Powerball draws take place on Tuesday and Friday at 21.30 SAST. Physical ticket sales for both games stop at 21.00 SAST on the night of the respective draw. Sales of tickets purchased through the lottery concierge service may close up to three hours before the draws are scheduled to take place. Overseas players cannot take part in Lotto Plus.
Play at an Authorised Retailer
Tickets for Lotto, Lotto Plus and Powerball can be purchased in person from authorised retailers across South Africa. If you purchase a paper ticket from an authorised retailer, please make sure that you keep it safe as you will need to present it in the event that your ticket matches a winning combination. It is also recommended that you sign the back of your ticket to avoid anyone else claiming your prize in the event that your ticket is lost or stolen.
You can also take part in some of the world's biggest games, such as US Powerball and Mega Millions, the pan-European EuroMillions and SuperEnalotto from Italy. All of these lotteries regularly offer huge jackpots and other great cash prizes and are available to play through the dedicated lottery concierge.
