A lucky Lotto player from Christchurch has become the newest member of Lotto NZ’s exclusive millionaires club after winning $1 million with Lotto First Division in tonight’s Lotto draw.

The winning ticket was sold on MyLotto to a player from Christchurch.

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

Meanwhile, a lucky Strike player will also be celebrating tonight after winning $200,000 with Strike Four. The winning Strike ticket was sold on MyLotto to a player from Bay of Plenty.

Anyone who bought their ticket from MyLotto should check their ticket as soon as possible online at or through the Lotto NZ App.

During the COVID-19 Alert Level 4 lockdown, players can still buy tickets online at Lotto NZ counters in retail stores are closed until the lockdown has been lifted.

At all times Lotto NZ encourages players to Play Smart and not spend more than they can afford. This is especially important at this time of uncertainty, during the current COVID-19 Alert Level 4 lockdown. More information is available on MyLotto:

Our live draws can’t continue during Level 4 lockdown, so during this time computer generated draws will be held for Lotto, Powerball and Strike under Audit New Zealand scrutiny.
