Powerball is on a winning streak with one lucky Powerball player from Auckland taking home $4 million with Powerball First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.

The $4,200,000 million prize is made up of $4 million from Powerball First Division and $200,000 from Lotto First Division.

The winning ticket was sold at Hobsonville Four Square in Auckland.

Tonight’s win comes just a few days after a Christchurch Powerball player won a life-changing $10.5 million, and only one month after the Must Be Won draw, where ten lucky winners shared the $50 million jackpot.

"Eleven lucky winners have become overnight multi-millionaires with Powerball in the last month," says Marie Winfield, Head of Communications and Corporate Social Responsibility at Lotto NZ.

"We’re thrilled for all of our recent winners. It’s been amazing listening to their unique stories, and helping them navigate their way through this life-changing time is such a privilege."

Four other Lotto players will also be celebrating tonight after each winning $200,000 with Lotto First Division.

The winning Lotto tickets were sold at the following store:

Store / Location

Glendene Superette / Auckland

MyLotto / Auckland

Greymouth New World / Greymouth

MyLotto / Otago

Strike rolled over tonight and will be $600,000 on Wednesday.

The winning doesn’t stop there! Lotto NZ’s Father’s Day Triple Dip promotion was also drawn tonight and 80 extra prizes were up for grabs including five Ford Ranger Raptors (+ORC), and 75 prizes of $5,000 cash.
