Two lucky Powerball players from Auckland and Timaru will be celebrating after winning $7.3 million each in Saturday night's draw.

The winning tickets were both sold on MyLotto and the prizes are made up of $7 million from Powerball first division and $333,333 from Lotto first division.

One other lucky Lotto player will also be celebrating after winning $333,333 with Lotto first division. The winning ticket was sold at Pak'nSave Kaitaia.

Meanwhile, Strike has rolled over and will be $300,000 on Wednesday night. 

The big winners are the tenth and eleventh Powerball multi-millionaires of 2022, and the win comes just a month after a lucky Whakatāne woman won $12.25 million with Powerball first division.

The woman told Lotto she is looking forward to celebrating with her family and completing some home renovations.
