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

Meanwhile, Strike Four also rolled over tonight and will be $600,000 on Saturday.

Lotto New Zealand’s Mother’s Day promotion is now underway. All Lotto Triple Dip tickets bought between Sunday 28 April and 7.30pm on Saturday 11 May are in the draw to win 100 extra prizes, including 5x BMW X1 cars and 95x prizes of $5,000 cash.

Anyone who bought their ticket from the winning store 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.
