Two lucky MyLotto players from Taranaki and Southland will be celebrating tonight after each winning $500,000 with Lotto First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.

The winning tickets were sold on MyLotto to players from Taranaki and Southland.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Wednesday night, where the jackpot will be $8 million.

Meanwhile, Strike Four was also struck tonight with a player from Upper Hutt taking home $500,000. The winning Strike Four ticket was sold at Trentham Mini Mart in Upper Hutt.

Every day Lotto players support hundreds of conservation projects around the country that help protect our native fauna and flora - like the Mid Dome Wilding Trees Charitable Trust. This organisation is working hard to stop the spread of wilding pine in Southland so that our native species can prosper. Thanks Lotto players!

Anyone who bought their ticket from either of the above winning stores should write their name on the back of their ticket and check it immediately in-store at any Lotto shop, online at or through the Lotto NZ App.
