It will be a weekend to remember for two Lotto players from Auckland after each winning $500,000 with Lotto First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.

The winning tickets were sold at Countdown Silverdale in Silverdale and on MyLotto to a player from Auckland.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Wednesday night, where the jackpot will be $27 million.

Strike Four has rolled over tonight and will be $500,000 on Wednesday night.

With spring in bloom, Kiwis will be heading outdoors this weekend to enjoy the many beautiful natural attractions around the county like the award-winning, lottery-funded Hamilton Gardens.

Anyone who bought their ticket from Countdown Silverdale should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any Lotto outlet, online at or through the Lotto NZ App.
