Lotto results: $18 million Powerball prize won in Whangaparaoa

A lucky Lotto player is $18 million richer after hitting the jackpot in Saturday night's Lotto draw.

The ticket, sold at a Four Square in Whangaparaoa, was the only one to get all six numbers plus the Powerball. The owner won $18m from Powerball and $200,000 from first division, which was split five ways.

The other first division winners are from Auckland, Taupo, Wellington and Christchurch.

Strike Four was missed, and will roll over to $300,000 on Wednesday.

Powerball's first division prize has been won 15 times this year. The biggest prize was January's $22.3 million.

The winning numbers are 16, 17, 20, 22, 29 and 28. The Bonus Ball is 6 and the Powerball is 5.
