One lucky Christchurch Lotto player is $600,000 richer after Wednesday's draw, the punter hitting Strike Four and pocketing the biggest prize of the night.
Although the Powerball jackpot rolled over, three winners will receive a sweet sum of $333,333 after cracking Lotto first division. The players were from Auckland, Gisborne and Manawatu. The winning tickets were sold at Auckland's Farmcove Superette and on MyLotto.
Two division two Powerball winners have scored a lucrative $42,103, while six people will find a cool $35,327 in their bank accounts after lucking out in division two.
A staggering $16 million was up for grabs in Wednesday's Powerball draw, the prize now rolling over to Saturday - the jackpot now a juicy $18 million.
Wednesday's winning numbers were 26, 10, 28, 27, 31 and 21. The Powerball was 6 and the Bonus ball 24. Strike was 26, 10, 28 and 27.
Last week, a person who won a $17.1 million draw last year finally came forward to claim their prize.
"I wasn't in a rush to claim the prize - and I needed some time to process things," the unnamed winner said.
"It's all been very surreal."
