Lotto Winners Compete With Rugby Sevens Celebrations

There may be a party in Wellington with the rugby sevens in full swing, but three Lotto players around the country will be celebrating too with their $333,333 First Division wins from tonight’s draw.

The winning Lotto tickets were sold at Fred’s Four Square in Huntly, Dawson Superette in Auckland, and Drury Lane Lotto Superette.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has jackpotted to an estimated $5 million, and Strike was not struck either, so jackpotted to $400,000.

Winning Wheel winner Diane from Wellington won a $100,000 luxury car on the live draw at Avalon studios in the capital tonight.

Tonight’s Winning Wheel ticket was bought at Mobil Hillside, Wairau Valley in Auckland. The serial number is 714-67012868-20xx.

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.

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 or online at

In the last 12 months, over 3,000 community groups throughout New Zealand have benefitted from the redistribution of Lotto profits ($183 million in 2011/2012) via the NZ Lottery Grants Board.
