Lotto results: The numbers you need to win the $15m Powerball

The numbers for Wednesday's massive Lotto Powerball draw have been drawn with a whopping $16 million up for grabs.

The jackpot is $15 million while the First Division prize is $1 million.

The bonus ball is 23 and the Powerball is 3.

Last Friday a Tauranga father was ecstatic after winning $1 million with Lotto First Division.

The man, who wished to remain anonymous, said he had been buying Lotto tickets for several years with numbers chosen by his family.

"I didn't know a prize had been won by someone in Tauranga, so when I saw an email from MyLotto while I was getting ready for work on Thursday I didn’t think anything of it," he said.

"It wasn't until that evening that I remembered and finally got around to checking the ticket. I opened the Lotto NZ App and watched as the Lotto numbers started being circled off on my ticket. I thought, 'hold on, we're actually getting a few of our numbers on one line'.

"When I saw all six numbers circled on one line of the ticket and a message saying I'd won $1 million, my hands just started shaking - I couldn't believe it."

He said his family's lives had changed "in an instant".
