The stars have aligned for two lucky Lotto players from Auckland after each winning $500,000 with Lotto First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.

The winning tickets were sold on MyLotto.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Saturday night, where the jackpot will be $7 million.

Strike Four was also not struck tonight and will be $300,000 on Saturday.

All Lotto counters within the Auckland and Northland regions are closed while these areas remain in Alert Level 4 lockdown. During this time, customers in the Auckland and Northland regions can only buy tickets online at MyLotto.

Lotto NZ counters south of the Auckland boundary located in stores that offer essential services are allowed to open at Alert Level 3 should they choose to.

It may take a few days for these stores to get their Lotto counters back up and running. In the meantime, customers can continue to purchase their tickets online at or through the Lotto NZ App.

Our live draws are unable to continue while Auckland remains in Level 4 lockdown, so during this time computer generated draws will be held for Lotto, Powerball and Strike under Audit New Zealand scrutiny.

Anyone from the above location who bought their ticket on MyLotto should check it online at or through the Lotto NZ App.
