Winelands villa up for grabs in lotto

A villa in the Cape Winelands is being given away in a lottery, with each of the 9999 tickets costing euro 99 (about R1400), according to Sunday's Rapport newspaper.

Dutch couple, Peter de Pagter and his wife Arlette Boeckx, stand to make R14.9 million if they sell all the tickets. The villa is estimated to be worth about R4 million. They have been living in South Africa for 10 years but want to return to Europe for personal reasons.

The 400 square metre residence is in the Diemersfontein Wine and Country Estate in Wellington. It has a sauna, heated pool, air conditioning and is fully furnished.

The couple have a website on which the details of the lottery are explained. The draw has been scheduled for May 31 but could take place sooner if all the tickets are sold quickly.
