    So if I told you I won R6,521 million in the Lotto, you will take that as me winning R6 521 000 000 (aka R6,521 billion)?

    If there was no comma, I'd have concurred with you.

    The comma is a thousands separator, not a decimal, so it's correct as is. But as Urban pointed out, it's a little clumsy. Not sure why the author is scared of the word billion.
