Lotto's Powerball was struck last night, a rare piece of good news at this time for at least one lucky Kiwi.
The winning ticket - sold at Redwood Mini Market in Christchurch - has made its owner $7.5 million richer.
The previous Powerball jackpot, won two weeks ago, was worth $50 million and split two ways.
Another gambler from New Plymouth won $500,000 in the first division on Saturday night.
The winning numbers were 9, 13, 22, 23, 25 and 36. The Bonus ball was 37, the Powerball 2.
Strike Four rolled over, and will rise to $800,000 on Wednesday.
