Man ‘loses’ Lotto ticket, friend buys new BMW

Weeks after Baloyi’s winning Lotto ticket went missing, his friend started renovating his house and throwing massive parties every week.

Fumane Baloyi thought the gods were finally on his side after finding out he had won Powerball. However, his newfound luck was short-lived when he lost his Lotto ticket before he could claim it. The man says his childhood friend and neighbour got him drunk and took his winning ticket worth a whopping R1 million.

The 39-year-old man from Duduza in Ekurhuleni told Daily Sun he went to the shops on November 10 with his girlfriend to buy a Powerball ticket and found his friend there. Out of trust, Baloyi gave his friend R14 and asked him to buy a quickpick ticket for him, which was then given to its rightful owner outside the shop.

The following day, out of excitement after realising he had won the Powerball, Baloyi shared the news with his friends, who drank all night with him in celebration of his good news and, incidentally, his daughter’s birthday.

The next morning he decided to go and claim his winnings, only to realise his ticket had gone missing. Baloyi then went to ask his friend if he had picked up the ticket by mistake, but the friend denied that, saying he did not know what he was talking about, “but I could see something wasn’t right”, Baloyi said.

“After a few weeks he bought a brand new BMW 120d and started renovating his house. He bought new furniture, appliances, a new sound system, a plasma TV and a fridge. He was throwing massive parties week in and out,” he told the paper.

When Baloyi got suspicious, he went and asked his friend’s relative where the friend got the money from, to which the relative responded: “Lotto”.

When Daily Sun approached Baloyi’s friend, he told them he was aware of the claims his friend had been making about him, and that his problem was that “he thinks he knows what my bank status is. He thinks I’m lazy and I sit at home all day like him. I don’t have to explain to anyone where I got this money.”

A case of general theft was opened at the Duduza Police Station, while the Lotto spokesperson said they were investigating the matter.
