History of Lotto and the Sporstake 13 game
The South African Lotto was started in 2000 and sold its first tickets in Langa Cape Town – which were bought by Thabo Mbeki the former South African President – that same year. Shortly after the South African Lotto was rolled out by the government, its fist millionaire, who won an impressive R13, 831,850; was made.
Since then, the South African Lotto only got more and more popular and with higher and higher jackpot prizes – the largest prize being R34, 256, 346 won by an anonymous winner in 2006.
On the 1st of June, 2015 ITHUBA Holdings Proprietary Limited (RF) became the official operator of the South African National Lottery.
The Sporstake 13 game is a game that requires players to fill out a Fixture List predicting their outcome of 13 predetermined soccer matches from all around the world. Sporstake 13 was a feature of the previous operator and with ITHUBA the game was made better.
ITHUBA introduced new upgrades to the game that included new rules that made the chances of winning greater by awarding not only the players that get 13 out of 13 fixtures correct, but those that got 12 out of 13, 11 out of 13 and 10 out 13 fixtures as well.
In addition to this, ITHUBA also introduced PROPICK which is a quick play option based on Multi-Play bets where an intelligent system will automatically choose match results for the player by comparing previous match statistics.
