Previously, the draws took place only once a week on Saturdays, but since October 3rd 2001, it’s drawn twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Like other lottery games, this South Africa lotto offers a big amount of money as the jackpot as it also applies the roll over. The jackpot that can’t be won by anyone in a draw is then summed up into the next drawing but it’s limited to 4 times of roll over. The jackpot will have to be distributed to the second prize division winners if no one wins at the fourth drawing.
