A lucky Lotto player from Whangarei will be popping the champagne after winning $1 million in tonight’s live Lotto draw.

The winning Lotto ticket was sold at New World Regent in Whangarei.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Wednesday night, where the jackpot will be $10 million.

Meanwhile, the Strike Must Be Won jackpot of $1 million was not won by a single ticket and therefore rolled down to Strike Three. The prize was shared by 163 players, who each takes home $6,737. The winning stores and locations will be available on MyLotto on Monday.

With 100% of Lotto NZ’s profits supporting over 3,000 good causes every year, every time you play one of Lotto NZ’s games, you’re a Kiwi helping other Kiwis.

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of the above winning 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.
