“The excitement is building in Lotto stores all around the country as the jackpot continues to grow,” says Marie Winfield, Head of Communications and Corporate Social Responsibility at Lotto NZ.

“It’s a life-changing amount and if a single player is lucky enough to win the Powerball jackpot on Saturday night, it will be the second largest prize ever won in New Zealand.”

Meanwhile, five lucky Lotto players from Auckland, Waiuku, Gisborne, Porirua and Mosgiel will be popping the champagne after each winning $200,000 with Lotto First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.
