One lucky Powerball player from Hawkes Bay will be dreaming big after winning $8.3 million with Powerball First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.

The prize is made up of $8 million from Powerball First Division and $333,333 from Lotto First Division.

Tonight’s winner is the second Powerball multi-millionaire of 2024, and the win comes just weeks after a $17.25 million Powerball prize was won by a player in Canterbury. The player is looking forward to investing their winnings.

Meanwhile, a lucky Strike player will also be celebrating after winning $700,000 with Strike Four. The winning Strike ticket was sold at Te Puna Four Square in Tauranga.

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.
