It will be a night to remember for a lucky Powerball player from Tauranga after winning $10.3 million with Powerball First Division tonight.

The winning ticket was sold on MyLotto and the prize is made up of $10 million from Powerball First Division and $333,333 from Lotto First Division. 

Tonight’s winner is the nineteenth Powerball winner so far this year and comes just over two weeks after a player from Paraparaumu won $4.3 million with Powerball.

Two lucky Lotto players from Lower Hutt and Christchurch will also be celebrating after winning $333,333 with Lotto First Division in tonight’s Lotto draw. The winning tickets were sold at Hutt City New World in Lower Hutt and at New World Ilam in Christchurch.

Meanwhile, a lucky Strike player will also be celebrating after winning $200,000 with Strike Four. The winning Strike ticket was sold at Palmerston Four Square Strike in Otago.

The live Lotto draws are unable to take place under the current Alert Level restrictions in Auckland. During this time Lotto will continue using computer-generated draws for Lotto, Powerball, and Strike.
