Lotto: Aucklander wins $6.3 million Powerball jackpot

An Aucklander has won an incredible $6.3 million after the Lotto Powerball was struck on Saturday night.

The total prize is made up of $6 million from Powerball and $333,333 from Lotto first division. 

The ticket was bought on Lotto NZ's app and is the second big Powerball win on the app in just over a week, after a 22-year-old man from Otago won $22.3 million last Wednesday - the largest Powerball prize ever won in the South Island. 

Two other players won the first division on Saturday night, winning $333,333 each. The tickets were sold at Whanga Books, Whangamata and Paper Plus in Waipukurau.

Strike rolls over to $200,000 on Wednesday night. 

The winning numbers were 3, 4, 8, 9, 13 and 15, with the Powerball 6 and the Bonus 11.
