$12.9 Million Christmas Bonus For Akld Lotto Powerball Player

Christmas night has bought a very special late present to one lucky Lotto Powerball player who bought a ticket in North Shore City, after winning $12.9 million on tonight’s Lotto draw, says NZ Lotteries’ Chief Executive, Todd McLeay.

“This Christmas will definitely be one out of the box for this lucky winner,” said McLeay.

Tonight’s winning Lotto Powerball ticket was sold at Magascene, Takapuna in North Shore City and is worth a total of $12,991,369, with $12,658,036 from Powerball First Division and $333,333 from Lotto First Division.

Two other players also won a $333,333 share each of Lotto First Division tonight. The winning tickets were purchased Edmonton Stationery & Lotto in Waitakere and Sweet Lotto Centre, also in North Shore City.

Strike Four wasn’t struck this evening and jackpots to a huge $400,000.

Meanwhile, Flora from Invercargill spun and won a huge $250,000 on the Winning Wheel at the live draw in Wellington this evening.

Tonight’s Winning Wheel ticket was bought at House of Gifts & Lotto in Gisborne. The serial number is 942-45654788-20XX.

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.
All Lotto players are automatically in the draw to win the opportunity to spin Lotto’s Winning Wheel, regardless of the type of ticket they buy.
