Two Lotto players from Hastings and Wanaka will have an extra reason to celebrate this Waitangi Day after each winning $500,000 with Lotto First Division in Wednesday night’s live Lotto Draw.

The winning tickets were sold a Paper Plus Hastings in Hastings and Albert Town Four Square in Wanaka.

“Powerball was not struck and has rolled over to Saturday night, where the jackpot will be $22 million,” says a Lotto spokesperson.

“Strike Four also rolled over tonight and will be $400,000 on Saturday.

“With 100 per cent of Lotto NZ’s profits supporting over 3000 good causes every year, every time you play one of Lotto NZ’s games, you’re a Kiwi helping other Kiwis.”

Anyone who bought their ticket from either of the above winning stores should check their ticket immediately at any Lotto outlet, online at or through the Lotto NZ App.
