The Lotto numbers for Wednesday night's draw have been revealed, with a massive $23 million to be won with Powerball.

It's been over a month since Powerball was last won and has been slowly increasing since. Lotto players have the chance to win the life-changing amount of $23 million.

The Lotto numbers are 27, 23, 28, 32, 6 and 25. The bonus ball is 17 and the Powerball is 9.

In June, an unidentified couple from the Christchurch suburb of Merivale won $33.5 million, the country's third-biggest Lotto win. They kept the ticket hidden in a sock drawer for over a week before claiming their prize. 

"I kept thinking, 'Goodness, I better make sure the iron is turned off' every time I went out!" said the woman.

Now they've claimed their winnings, the couple is looking forward to their future.

"This will help us set up our family for generations to come. It is also enough for us to help community causes we care about over the long term and make a lasting difference - and that is what we are focused on," the man said.
