The winning tickets were sold at Whitcoulls New Lynn in Auckland, Praters Four Square in Taupo and Countdown Kaiapoi in Kaiapoi.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Saturday night, where the jackpot will be $12 million.

Strike also rolled over tonight and will be $300,000 on Saturday.
