Christmas has come early for five players from Auckland, Waikanae, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin after taking home $200,000 with Lotto First Division in Saturday night’s live Lotto draw.

The winning tickets were sold at MyLotto – Auckland, Waikanae Beach Four Square – Waikanae, Caltex Basin Reserve – Wellington, Countdown New Brighton - Christchurch, and Pak n Save Dunedin – Dunedin.

Powerball was not struck last night and has rolled over to Wednesday night, where the jackpot will be $15 million.

Strike also rolled over last night and will be $1 million on Wednesday, meaning it will be a Must Be Won draw. In a Strike Must Be Won draw, if no single ticket wins First Division, the prize pool is added to the next highest division with a winner.

Eleven Lotto players will be jumping for joy after each winning $27,639 with Lotto Second Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.

Two lucky players also won Powerball Second Division, taking their total winnings to $37,699.

The winning Second Division tickets were sold at New World Kerikeri – Kerikeri, Eastridge Lotto (+PB) – Auckland, Gossamer Minimart & Lotto Shop – Auckland, Waiau Pa Four Square – Pukekohe, Crosby Road Superette – Hamilton, Video Ezy Hillcrest & PostShop – Hamilton, MyLotto - Bay of Plenty, New World Otaki – Otaki, Kapiti Pak n Save – Paraparaumu, MyLotto (+PB) – Southland, and Night n Day Gore – Gore.
