Powerball player from Wellington wins $5 million
Powerball’s winning streak continues tonight with a player from Wellington winning $5 million with Powerball First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.
The winning ticket was sold on MyLotto to a player from Wellington. The total prize is made up of $4 million from Powerball First Division and $1 million from Lotto First Division.
This is the second draw in a row that the Powerball jackpot has been won, following on from Saturday’s draw where a young woman from Auckland won $10 million. The weekend’s lucky winner is spending some of her winnings to bring her family together for Christmas for the first time in over a decade.
Strike Four rolled over tonight and will be worth $200,000 on Saturday.
