Powerball was not struck on Wednesday night, meaning there is now $38 million up for grabs on Saturday night.

“$38 million is life-changing! If a single player is lucky enough to win the Powerball jackpot on Saturday, it will be the second largest prize ever won in New Zealand,” says Marie Winfield, Head of Communications and Corporate Social Responsibility at Lotto NZ.

“Winning Powerball has a huge ripple effect – so many people benefit from that one little yellow ticket, the win is felt right throughout the winner’s community,” says Marie.

Meanwhile, six lucky Lotto players from around the country will be jumping for joy after each winning $166,667 with Lotto First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.
