$500,000 win for two lucky Lotto players

07 January 2017

Lotto players from Rotorua and Porirua will be popping the champagne tonight after each winning $500,000 with Lotto First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.

The winning Lotto tickets were sold at Pak N Save Rotorua in Rotorua and Plimmerton Four Square in Porirua.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Wednesday night, where the jackpot will be $8 million.

Meanwhile, Strike Four also rolled over and will be $500,000 on Wednesday.

With summer holidays in full swing, Kiwi families are making the most of great weather and the outdoors. Thanks to Lotto players organisations like the Royal NZ Coastguard and Surf Life Saving NZ receive vital funding that helps keep Kiwis safe this summer. Good on you Lotto players!

Anyone who bought their ticket from either of the above 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.
