One other Lotto player also won $500,000 tonight. The winning Lotto ticket was sold at Collingwood Foodcentre in Invercargill.
Strike Four was also won tonight by a player in Tauranga, who took home $116,199. The winning Strike Four ticket was sold at Greerton Lotto.
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 App.
