Tauranga Lotto player wins $1 million

Are you the lucky winner?

A lucky Lotto player from Tauranga has become the country’s newest Lotto millionaire after winning $1 million with Lotto First Division.

The winning ticket was sold on MyLotto to a player from Tauranga.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Saturday night, where the jackpot will be $12 million., says a Lotto spokesperson.

"Meanwhile, a lucky Strike player will also be celebrating after winning $400,000 with Strike Four.

"The winning Strike ticket was sold at New World Gate Pa in Tauranga."

With 100 per cent of Lotto NZ’s profits supporting thousands of great causes each year, every time you play one of Lotto NZ’s games, you’re a Kiwi helping other Kiwis. 

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of the above stores should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it at any Lotto NZ outlet, online at or through the Lotto NZ App.   

New Zealand is currently at Alert Level 1. Lotto NZ counters across the country are open and will continue to follow the Government’s health and safety guidelines. For more information, please visit:
