$4.6 Million Lotto Powerball Prize Won In Auckland
$4.6 Million Lotto Powerball Prize Won by Ticket from Auckland on Waitangi Weekend Still to be Claimed
A lucky player who bought a ticket at Countdown Lynfield in Auckland and won $4.6 million with Powerball First Division in last night's Lotto draw is still to claim their prize, says NZ Lotteries Chief Executive Trevor Hall.
When they claim their prize, the owner of the ticket will collect a total prize of $4,666,560 million with $4,333,227 million from winning Powerball First Division and $333,333 from also winning Lotto First Division.
"It could be that the lucky player is still unaware that they've won. They may have gone away for the long weekend and haven't got round to checking their ticket yet," says Mr Hall.
Mr Hall's advice for the Powerball winner is to write their name and address on the ticket, confirming their ownership.
"They should then contact NZ Lotteries Wellington office who can provide advice about the next steps to take," he said.
"We have people waiting to talk the big winner through the prize process. All they need to do is call 04 8027000," he says.
He says the same goes for the other two Lotto First Division winners from last night's draw. Two other Lotto tickets, sold at Braggers Lotto, Whangaparoa, and Lotto at Countdown in Ashburton, also won Lotto First Division in last night's draw, winning $333,333 each. Both prizes are still to be claimed.
"Lotto players in Auckland, Whangaparoa and Ashburton should check their tickets, as these big prizes from the weekend are just waiting to be claimed, "Mr Hall says.
