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.

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