Lotto: Numbers for special Cyclone Gabrielle draw revealed

  • 18/03/2023

The numbers for Lotto's special Cyclone Gabrielle draw have been revealed as eager Kiwis race to check their tickets.

Saturday night's numbers are 37, 17, 4, 27, 38, and 11. The bonus ball is 26 and the Powerball is 3.

Up for grabs is a Powerball prize of $15 million and a first division prize of $1 million, along with $300,000 for strike.

The draw is "must be won" - meaning if the Powerball first division isn't struck on Saturday night, the prize will roll down to those lucky enough to hit the second division.

And if the second division also isn't struck, it will roll down further.

The draw is helping to raise funds to support the recovery efforts from Cyclone Gabrielle.

"This is an easy way for those who like to play Powerball to get behind those communities doing it tough right now," Lotto chief executive Chris Lyman said on Wednesday.

"As previously announced, Lotto NZ is doubling its usual community contribution, so that half of all ticket sales from the Special Draw - or 50c from every dollar spent on Lotto, Powerball or Strike - will go to support those communities across the North Island that have been impacted by the cyclone."
