Powerball Struck Second Week In A Row

Just one week after a $6 million prize was won by family syndicate from Lynfield in Auckland, Powerball has been struck again, this time a $3 million prize sold in North Shore City, says NZ Lotteries' Chief Executive, Todd McLeay.

This week's winning ticket was sold at Mairangi Bay Dairy and Lotto in North Shore City, and is worth a total of $4 million with $3 million from Powerball First Division and $1 million from Lotto First Division.

"Powerball is having a fantastic run of winners, this is the third multi-million dollar prize won in just five weeks.

"As the 11,000 cyclists in Taupo are taking a well-earned break, our lucky winner will be spinning with excitement as they discover they are the sole winner of this week's Powerball and Lotto First Division prizes in tonight's draw," says Mr McLeay.

Lotto Strike was also struck by two players, who will each get a $67,718 share of Strike First Division. The tickets were sold at Red Beach Four Square and Take Note Rotorua.

Meanwhile, Misty King from Auckland was tonight's other big winner after spinning up $200,000 on Lotto's Winning Wheel.

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 won by a player who bought their ticket from Thames Pak N Save. The serial number is 548-45600519-20XX.

"Anyone who bought a ticket at any of our winning retailers should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it as soon as possible," Mr McLeay says.
