Lotto win gets split between three players

Three Kiwis are $333,333 richer after winning first division Lotto on Saturday night.

It's the second draw in a row where the prize has been split three ways. On Wednesday, one Aucklander had bought two tickets with the same numbers and won a total of $666,666 due to the split draw.

There's unlikely to be a repeat of that this week, with the winning tickets all sold at different stores - Countdown LynnMall and Countdown Papatoetoe in Auckland, and Pak'nSave in Hastings.

Powerball wasn't struck and rolls over to a jackpot of $12 million on Wednesday. Strike was missed, and rolls over to $400,000.

The winning numbers were 4, 5, 11, 16, 36, 40, with a bonus ball of 2 and Powerball of 4. Strike was 16, 40, 36 and 5.
