Lotto results: Christmas cheer spread amongst multiple winners

Just in time for some last-minute shopping, two lucky gamblers have won Lotto's first division.

The newly wealthy - from Kerikeri and Waihi - will take home $500,000 each.

And Strike was also split - between three players from Auckland and Canterbury. They're all now $133,333 better off.

Powerball wasn't struck though, and will rise to $14 million on Wednesday.

Sixteen won second division, scooping up a handy $18,757 each - and two of them also getting the Powerball, upping their winnings to $27,173.

The numbers were 5, 7, 18, 22, 29 and 40. The Powerball was 6 and Strike 7, 29, 22 and 18.
