With 2017 just around the corner, we’re taking the time to look back and reflect on what a wonderful year 2016 has been for us. Take a trip back in time with us as we revisit 5 of the most memorable LottoStar moments of the year.
Johan’s R1 Million BIG Win!
In September, Johan was anxiously waiting in the 947 studio when he heard the breath-taking news that he had just won R1 million from LottoStar. He told 947 that he had never won anything in his life before, so he was quite overwhelmed when we told him that he will be going home R1 Million Rand richer.
He was in tears when he phoned his
A R1 Million Helping Hand For The Grace Factory
The Grace Factory is a non-profit organisation that aims to assist children’s homes across the country by providing them with basic necessities such as clothes, blankets, toiletries, nappies, formula etc.
We donated R1 million to the Grace Factory to help them achieve their goal of ensuring that newborn babies across the country have all the necessities they need to get a good start in life. The money went towards a new delivery van and necessities for the maternity packs that the Grace Factory distributed to disadvantaged mothers of newborn children. Our staff also spent 4 days assisting them with packing the maternity packs and making deliveries to hospitals across Gauteng.
We wish that everyone at the Grace Factory has a happy new year that’s full of blessings.
Zinzi’s Christmas Wish
Zinzi is a 14-year-old straight-A student from Johannesburg. She wrote a letter to 947 for their Christmas Wish campaign asking for a good quality laptop so that she could complete her schooling through an online college because the funds she had received to pay for her high school education had been stolen.
We just couldn’t let a brilliant academic mind like hers go to waste, so we changed her life forever by paying R450 000 for her entire high school education at Potchefstroom Girls High School.
We know that Zinzi will make us proud as she finishes her schooling and goes on to fulfil her dream of becoming one of South Africa’s future innovators. Dreams do come true when you wish upon LottoStar.
The New American Games
At LottoStar, we always enjoy adding new games to our selection of prestigious international lotteries. So, it goes without saying that we were extremely excited to welcome the new American lotteries: USA Powerball and Mega Millions.
The launch of the new American games could not have come at a better time. The US elections were well underway and the competition between the two candidates was quite heated. So we decided to hold a poll and see who you thought would win the elections. Those of you who correctly predicted that Trump would win received free bets on both games. It was really great fun.
The USA Powerball offers you the chance to win world record-breaking payouts and is considered one of the most popular lotteries in America. Mega Millions currently holds the title of the second biggest jackpot in history and is played by millions of Americans each week.
The New Australian Games
We know that the more lotteries we have on LottoStar, the more fun and enjoyment you will get from betting on winning millions with us. Just recently, we launched our new Australian games, Set for Life, Oz Lotto and Oz Powerball and we’ve already seen that many of you have started betting on them.
Set for Life’s great odds, exceptional payouts, and exciting daily draws make it a really good choice for anyone who’s going for the big win. Oz Lotto gives you the chance to play for hundreds of millions every Tuesday and is a crowd favourite among the many Australians who play it every week.
The Oz Powerball was started in 1996 to give Australians a similar game to the highly successful USA Powerball.
Everyone at LottoStar wishes you a happy, successful and prosperous 2017. Here’s to another year filled with fun new games, giveaways and GIGANTIC payouts from LottoStar.
