Lotto Luck for Ticket Sold At Auckland Hospital

If you bought a Lotto ticket at Auckland Hospital this week, it could pay to check your tickets, as one ticket has won $2 million on tonight’s Lotto draw, says NZ Lotteries’ Chief Executive, Wayne Pickup.

“Our Lotto game jackpotted last week which meant $2 million was up for grabs this weekend, and our Auckland Lotto winner has certainly cashed in,” says Mr Pickup.

The winning ticket was sold at Auckland Hospital Book and Post in Auckland.

Powerball has jackpotted this week, and Powerball First Division will be worth $8.5 million next weekend.

Strike has jackpotted to $900,000.

Meanwhile, Fuata and Ravinesh from Westport won $100,000 on the Winning Wheel at the live draw in Wellington this evening.

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. Players can check their ticket at any lottery outlet.

Thanks to a bonus draw, there were three Winning Wheel winners this evening. Tonight’s Winning Wheel tickets were bought at the following stores;
