It will be a Waitangi weekend to remember for two lucky Lotto players from Auckland and Lower Hutt after each winning $500,000 with Lotto First Division in Saturday night’s live Lotto draw.

The winning tickets were sold at Lancaster Four Square in Auckland and Dowse Drive Foodmarket in Lower Hutt.

Powerball was not struck last night and has rolled over to Wednesday night, where the jackpot will be $12 million.

Strike Four was also won last night by a player from Auckland, who took home $200,000. The winning Strike ticket was sold on MyLotto to a player from Auckland.

Seven Lotto players will be starting the month on a high after each winning $39,788 with Lotto Second Division in Saturday night’s live Lotto draw.

The winning Second Division tickets were sold at Pak N Save Kaitaia -  Kaitaia, Waipapa Dairy – Waipapa, MyLotto – Auckland, Pak N Save Thames – Thames, New World Te Rapa – Hamilton, Napier City Pak N Save – Napier, and Waterloo Four Square – Lower Hutt.
