A Lotto player from Auckland will have a new-found freedom after winning $1 million with Lotto First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.

The winning ticket was sold at Countdown Botany in Auckland.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Saturday night, where the jackpot will be $16 million.

Meanwhile, in tonight’s Strike Must Be Won Draw, the $700,000 jackpot was shared by 93 players who each take home $8099. The winning stores and locations will be available on MyLotto on Thursday.

It’s Conservation Week and by playing Lotto you’re helping make a difference in your own backyard. Lotto funding helps food rescue services, like Kaivolution, reduce edible food going to landfill, by rescuing it and redistributing it the community – so good on you Lotto players!

Anyone who bought their ticket from the above winning store 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.
