Up for grabs on Wednesday night was a huge $25 million Lotto Powerball prize - but it wasn't struck and will roll over to $28m on Saturday.

One lucky player, however, bagged $1 million in Lotto first division.

Wednesday's winning numbers were revealed at about 8:20pm. They were: 1, 5, 16, 23, 24 and 39. The Powerball was 10 and the bonus ball was 38.

If Powerball is struck on Saturday, it will follow the record-breaking Powerball win last year - where a family from the small Waikato town of Pōkeno won $42 million.  

Last month, an Auckland man netted $21 million in the first Lotto Powerball win of 2022
