"This is a feel good story if ever I heard it, as these lucky winners will be feeling very good when they check their tickets," says Mr McLeay.

The winning Lotto tickets were sold at Waitara Post & Lotto, Shop 'n' Save Otara in Manukau, and Massey Pharmacy in Waitakere.

Powerball First Division has jackpotted tonight so will be worth an estimated $6 million next week. Strike Four was struck, with a lucky winner from Auckland picking up $290,215. The winning ticket was sold at Ramlax Dairy in Westmere.

Meanwhile, Don from Auckland won $200,000 on Lotto's Winning Wheel on the live draw this evening.

All Lotto players are automatically in the draw to win the opportunity to spin Lotto's Winning Wheel, regardless of the type of ticket they buy. Players can check their ticket at any lottery outlet.

Tonight's Winning Wheel ticket was bought through NZ Lotteries' online channel, MyLotto, by a player from Christchurch. The serial number is 265-08747270-20XX.

Anyone who bought their ticket from the above winning store should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any Lotto outlet.
