A Lotto player from Ashburton will be enjoying a cracking start to their Easter celebrations after winning $1 million with Lotto First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.

The winning ticket was sold on MyLotto.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Saturday night, where the jackpot will be $7 million.

Meanwhile, Strike Four also rolled over tonight and will be $400,000 on Saturday.

With the Easter weekend right around the corner, Kiwis will be heading outdoors to enjoy some of the many beautiful natural attractions around the country - including the award-winning, lottery-funded Hamilton Gardens.

Anyone who bought their ticket on MyLotto should check it immediately online at or through the Lotto NZ App.
