Two Lotto players have taken home $500,000 each after winning Saturday night's First Division prize.
The winning tickets were sold at Whitcoulls Albany Mall in Auckland and New World Carterton.
They'll be ruing not striking it lucky with Powerball, which will jackpot to $16 million on Wednesday.
Strike Four was also missed, increasing to $400,000 at the next draw.
There's an extra chance to win big over the next week, with Triple Dip tickets bought before 7:30pm on Saturday putting gamblers in the draw to win Audi A1 cars, $20,000 travel prizes, $10,000 shopping sprees and $10,000 straight-up cash.
