Lotto results: Unaired draw split three ways

Lotto's long weekend first division prize was split in three on Saturday night, each taking home $333,333.

The winning tickets were sold at New World Kaikohe in Kaikohe, AJ's Lotto in Tauranga and on MyLotto to a player from Waikato.

No one got the Powerball though, which will rise to $7 million at the next draw.

Strike Four was won by a gambler from Palmerston North, who's now $200,000 richer. They bought their ticket on MyLotto.

The draw wasn't aired on TV due to the SkyCity fire near TVNZ's studios. 

"The draw was conducted off-air under Audit New Zealand scrutiny," organisers said.

The winning numbers were 8, 12, 16, 19, 20 and 24. The Bonus ball was 18, the Powerball 10. Strike was 12, 24, 16 and 8.
