Two Lotto players will be popping the champagne after each winning $500,000 with Lotto First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.

The winning tickets were sold at Pak N Save Clarence Street in Hamilton and Countdown Fairy Springs in Rotorua.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Wednesday night, where the jackpot will be $5 million.

Meanwhile, Strike Four was won by one player in Christchurch, who takes home $100,000. The winning Strike ticket was sold at Wainoni Pak N Save.

Every Lotto ticket ever purchased has helped fund amazing community projects all over the country - including preserving New Zealand’s precious taonga. Wellington’s Te Papa is home to some of our nation’s most treasured artifacts and Lotto players helped make this museum possible. Thanks Lotto players!

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of the above stores 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.
