Wellington Lotto player wins $7 million

  • 29/03/2023

A lucky Powerball player from Wellington has won $7 million with Powerball First Division in tonight's live Lotto draw.

The winning ticket was sold on MyLotto to a player from Wellington. The prize is made up of $6 million from Powerball First Division and $1 million from Lotto First Division.

Wednesday's winner is the sixth Powerball multi-millionaire of 2023. The win comes just over a week after a $15.5 million Powerball prize was won by a Canterbury player.

Meanwhile, Strike Four rolled over on Wednesday and will be $1 million on Saturday, meaning it will be a Must Be Won draw. In a Strike Must Be Won draw, if no single ticket wins First Division, the prize pool is added to the next highest division with a winner. 

Lotto NZ is urging anyone who bought their ticket on MyLotto to check their ticket as soon as possible, on MyLotto, or through the MyLotto App. Players can phone Lotto NZ on 0800 695 6886 if they want to enquire about the best way to claim a prize.
