Lotto results: Wednesday's huge $20 million Powerball numbers

  • 22/07/2020

The numbers for Wednesday's huge Lotto Powerball draw have been revealed, which means Kiwis can now start checking if they've won the $20 million jackpot.

Tonight's numbers were 30, 40, 20, 18, 4 and 10. The bonus ball is 25 and the Powerball is 7.

Wednesday's combined prize pool is worth $21.2 million, which is made up mostly of the $20 million available through Powerball and bolstered by the Lotto first division jackpot of $1 million and a $200,000 Strike prize.

The last big win was on June 24, when a young Auckland couple took home $1 million. They were getting ready for bed when one of them decided to check their ticket.

"He came through and he was white as a sheet. He showed me his phone saying, 'I think we've won Lotto'," said the woman. "Of course, I just thought he was joking around and said, 'are you punking me?'

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

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

"We aren't going to go crazy - we'll leave it in the bank until our hearts, heads and feet are on the ground and we've got a good plan in place."
