Wairoa Powerball player wins $10.3 million

A lucky Powerball player from Wairoa will be starting the month on a high after winning $10.3 million with Powerball First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.

The winning ticket was sold at New World Wairoa in Wairoa.

The prize is made up of $10 million from Powerball First Division and $333,333 from Lotto First Division.

Tonight’s winner is the eleventh Powerball multi-millionaire of 2023, and the win comes just weeks after a $37.125 million Powerball prize was won by a couple from Paraparaumu. The couple are looking forward to helping their family with the win.

Two other lucky Lotto players will also be celebrating after winning $333,333 with Lotto First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw. The winning tickets were sold at Fresh Choice Geraldine in Geraldine and on MyLotto to a player from Auckland.

Meanwhile, Strike Four has rolled over tonight and will be $400,000 on Wednesday night.

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of the above stores or on MyLotto should check their ticket as soon as possible in-store, on MyLotto, or through the MyLottoApp.
