Lotto: Player wins $30 million Powerball draw, 5 win $166k - where the winning tickets were sold

One lucky Lotto winner has woken up $30 million richer after winning a life-changing Powerball First Division. 

The winner, from Carterton, won a total prize of $30.16m in Saturday night's live Lotto draw. 

The winning ticket was sold on MyLotto to a player in the small town with a population of less than 6000 people. 

The prize is made up of $30 million from Powerball First Division and $166,667 from Lotto First Division. 

The winner is New Zealand's fourth Powerball multi-millionaire of 2024, and the win comes just one month after a $12.3m Powerball prize was won by a couple in Otago. 

The pair said they are now lucky enough to be able to fulfil their dreams.  

Five other lucky Lotto players will also be celebrating after winning $166,667 with Lotto First Division in the live Lotto draw. 

The winning tickets were sold at Waimauku Minimart in Waimauku, Pacific Superette in Auckland, Pak N Save Ormiston in Auckland, and on MyLotto to two players from Waikato. 

Meanwhile, Strike Four rolled over on Saturday night and will be $800,000 on Wednesday.

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of the above stores is urged to check their ticket as soon as possible.
