Powerball and Strike have both rolled over tonight, meaning there is a combined prize pool of $7.2 million up for grabs on Saturday.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Saturday night, where the jackpot will be $6 million.

Lotto First Division will be $1 million and Strike Four will be $200,000 on Saturday night.

A week has now passed since Powerball players from Christchurch and Hastings won $2.5 million each with Powerball - and Lotto NZ is still searching for the lucky Hastings winner.

The winning ticket was sold at Countdown Hastings for the draw on Wednesday 19 September.

"The champagne is on ice - all we need now is for the lucky winner to claim their prize," said Kirsten Robinson, Head of Corporate Communications at Lotto NZ.

"Lotto NZ urges anyone who bought a ticket from Countdown Hastings for the draw on Wednesday 19 September to write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any Lotto shop, online at or through the Lotto NZ App."

Big winners can also call the Lotto New Zealand helpdesk on 0800 695 6886 for information on how to claim their prize.
