Lotto results: Saturday's $12m Powerball numbers

The numbers for Saturday's gigantic $12 million Powerball draw have been revealed - so check your ticket to see if you're the lucky winner.

Tonight's numbers are: 8, 16, 18, 21, 29, and 40. The bonus ball is 2 and the Powerball is 8.

If you've got the winning ticket, you could take home a combined prize pool of $13.6 million. This includes Lotto first division of $1 million and a $600,000 Strike prize.

The last big win was in June, when a young couple on Auckland's North Shore took home $1 million on June 24.

After a busy day at work, the couple were getting ready for bed when the man decided to check his ticket.

"That's when I saw 'winning ticket' and a whole heap of numbers at the top. I was gobsmacked," he said in a statement through Lotto.

After counting all the zeros, reality started to sink in and his partner burst into laughter.

"After I realised it wasn't a joke, I couldn't stop laughing - every time I thought about it, I just laughed," she said.

The couple said they planned to celebrate with a bottle of champagne.
