A lucky player from Auckland has won $8 million in Lotto's Powerball First Division.

The winning ticket was sold on MyLotto. 

The $8 million prize is made up of $7 million from Powerball First Division and $1 million from Lotto First Division.  

This is the second time in as many weeks that Powerball has been struck, with a Palmerston North man taking home $10.2 million at the end of January. 

The man celebrated his multi-million dollar win with a French toast breakfast.

In the Strike Must Be Won Draw, the $700,000 jackpot was shared by 119 players, each taking home $6,517.  

Anyone who bought a ticket for the draw should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it at any Lotto outlet, online at mylotto.co.nz or through the Lotto NZ App. Players can phone Lotto NZ on 0800 695 6886 if they want to enquire about the best way to claim a prize.
