BOP Lotto player wins $500,000

Two Lotto players from Auckland and Rotorua will be celebrating a midweek windfall after each winning $500,000 with Lotto First Division in Wednesday night’s live Lotto draw.

The winning tickets were sold at Ellerslie Four Square in Auckland and on MyLotto to a player from Rotorua.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Saturday night, where the jackpot will be $10 million, says a statement from Lotto NZ.

"Meanwhile, Strike Four was also won tonight by a player from Auckland, who took home $100,000. The winning Strike ticket was sold at Orakei Mini Mart in Auckland.

"Lotto NZ’s Keno Fiji promotion is now underway. Players who purchase a Keno ticket worth $5 or more between now and 6pm on Sunday 7 April will be in the draw to win one of ten luxury trips for two to Fiji."

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of the above winning stores should write their name on the back of their ticket and check it immediately in-store at any Lotto shop, online at or through the Lotto NZ App.
