Two Lotto players kick off 2017 with a win
Two Lotto players from Greymouth and the Manawatu region will be off to a fantastic start this year after each winning $500,000 with Lotto First Division tonight.
The winning Lotto tickets were sold at Countdown Greymouth in Greymouth and on MyLotto to a player from the Manawatu region.
Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Saturday night, where the jackpot will be $7 million.
Meanwhile, Strike Four also rolled over and will be $400,000 on Saturday.
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.
