Lotto First Division Winter Winners

Winter won't be so grey for three lucky players in Auckland, Rotorua and Wanganui after winning $333,333 each in Lotto's First Division tonight, says NZ Lotteries' Chief Executive, Todd McLeay.

"It may be getting pretty cold and damp around the country, but the forecast is looking pretty bright for these winners."

The winning tickets were purchased at Sams Superette in Auckland, Ngongotaha Books Lotto & Posts in Rotorua and Lindsay's Lotto Post & More in Wanganui.

Powerball has jackpotted this week, and will be worth an estimated $6 million in next Saturday's draw.

Strike Four has also jackpotted and will be worth an estimated $300,000 in next Saturday's draw.

Tonight's other big winner was Boston Walker who spun and won a 'His and Hers' car package 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 Albany Highway Superette & Lotto, North Shore, Auckland. The serial number is 971-46889003-20XX.

"Anyone who bought a ticket at any of these winning retailers should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it as soon as possible at any NZ Lotteries outlet," Todd McLeay says.
