$5.5 million win for Whangarei Powerball player

16 November 2016

A Powerball player from Whangarei has millions of reasons to celebrate after winning $5.5 million with Powerball First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw. 

The winning ticket was sold at Sunnyside Foodmarket in Whangarei and is made up of $5 million from Powerball First Division and $500,000 from Lotto First Division.

This win comes just a week after a young couple from the Hibiscus Coast in Auckland won $44 million with Powerball First Division on Wednesday – the largest prize ever won in New Zealand.

Another Lotto player from Papamoa also won $500,000 tonight. The winning Lotto ticket was sold at Pak N Save Papamoa.

Meanwhile, Strike Four rolled over tonight and will be $200,000 on Saturday.

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of the above winning stores should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any Lotto outlet, online at MyLotto.co.nz or through the Lotto NZ ticket-checker app.
