First Division Win Won in Christchurch Again

A very lucky player from Christchurch will celebrate the end of summer with an extra $1 million cash after winning Lotto First Division tonight, says NZ Lotteries' Chief Executive, Todd McLeay.

The winning ticket was purchased at Countdown Northlands Lotto Kiosk in Christchurch.

A Lotto First Division $1 million prize was won in Christchurch last week as well.

Lotto Powerball has jackpotted tonight and will be worth an estimated $9 million in next week's draw.

The Strike Four prize was won by three lucky players from Auckland, Waitara and Balclutha who each won $98,982.

Tonight's other big winner was Helen Hosken from Whangarei who won $250,000 on Lotto's Winning Wheel.

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.

Tonight's Winning Wheel ticket was sold by the Plaza Lunchbar Lotto in New Lynn, Waitakere. The serial number is 7905-19385860-20xx.

"Anyone who bought their ticket from any of these winning outlets should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any NZ Lotteries outlet," Mr McLeay says.
