A lucky Lotto player from Hamilton will have extra reason to celebrate this Waitangi Day after winning $1 million with Lotto First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.

The winning ticket was sold at Countdown Dinsdale in Hamilton.

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

Meanwhile, Strike Four has also rolled over tonight and will be $700,000 on Saturday night, meaning it will be a Must Be Won draw. In a Strike Must Be Won draw, if no single ticket wins First Division, the prize pool is added to the next highest division with winners.

Every time you play Lotto you’re helping Surf Life Saving teach thousands of Kiwi kids life-saving beach safety skills through their Beach Education programme. Thanks Lotto players!

Anyone who bought their ticket from the above winning store should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any Lotto outlet, online at MyLotto.co.nz or through the Lotto NZ App.
