While a South African walked away with R140 million in that country’s National Lottery Power Ball jackpot over the weekend, Batswana will have to wait a little longer for the same opportunity.

The Gambling Authority, established in 2012, is awaiting the outcome of arbitration in the matter in which it was dragged to court and interdicted from proceeding with the establishment of the national lottery by Infinitum Lottery Company. 

Infinitum Lottery Company sued after the Gambling Authority refused to accept Infinitum’s additional documents to participate in the tender to establish the lottery. Infinitum says it had already submitted the main documents before the tender closing time of 10am, October

This morning, Gambling Authority CEO, Thuli Johnson told Mmegi the issue had still not been resolved. 

“The issue is still before an arbitration panel and we are hoping they can conclude that quickly which would then allow us to complete the process,” he said. 

Meanwhile, in South Africa’s Mpumalanga province, one lucky winner is still head over heels from the weekend win of R140 million, the highest the lottery in that country has ever reached.
