A lucky Lotto player from the Waikato will be celebrating tonight after winning a scorching $1 million with Lotto First Division with tonight’s live Lotto draw.

The winning Lotto ticket was sold on MyLotto to a Waikato player.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Saturday night, where the jackpot will be $12 million.

Meanwhile, Strike Four also rolled over tonight and will be $500,000 this Saturday.

With ski season upon us, Kiwis will be looking forward to getting outside and hitting the slopes. Thanks to Lotto players, the NZ Mountain Safety Council is able to provide Kiwis with the knowledge and forecasts to have a great time and get home safely. So good on you Lotto players!

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