The winning ticket was sold at Countdown Helensville in Helensville.

Every year over 200 volunteers at the Wellington Hospitals Foundation knit more than 8,000 garments for the 3500 babies born at the Wellington Regional Hospital - including 1,000 babies in NICU. Every time you play one of Lotto NZ’s games, you’re a Kiwi helping our smallest Kiwis stay nice and warm.

Anyone who bought their ticket from Countdown Helensville should check their ticket immediately at any Lotto outlet, online at or through the Lotto NZ App.
