A lucky Strike player from Timaru will be celebrating after winning $200,000 with Strike Four in tonight’s live Lotto draw.

The winning ticket was sold at Timaru Pak N Save.

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

Lotto First Division will be $1 million and Strike Four will be $100,000 on Wednesday night.

Lotto players around the country have been on a winning streak lately, and with both a $7.2 million Powerball prize from Silverdale and a $2.5 million Powerball prize from Hastings yet to be claimed, Lotto NZ is urging players to check their tickets.

"There has been a huge amount of winning around the country over the past couple of weeks, so now’s the time to have a rummage and check any Lotto tickets you have tucked away - you never know, that little yellow piece of paper could be worth millions," said Kirsten Robinson, Head of Corporate Communications at Lotto NZ.

The unclaimed $7.2 million Powerball winning ticket was purchased at Pak N Save Silverdale for the draw on Wednesday 12 September.

The unclaimed $2.5 million Powerball winning ticket was purchased at Countdown Hastings for the draw on Wednesday 19 September.

Anyone who bought their ticket from either 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.
