Lotto players celebrating windfall

A Tauranga Lotto player is celebrating a $50,000 win this morning.

The lucky winner was one of two players to win Strike Four in last night's Lotto draw.

The other winners hails from the Waikato.

Both winning Strike tickets were sold on MyLotto.

Meanwhile, powerball’s winning streak continues with a lucky Powerball player from Silverdale scooping $7.2 million with Powerball First Division.

The $7.2 million prize is made up of $7 million from Powerball First Division and $200,000 from Lotto First Division.

The winning ticket was sold at Pak N Save Silverdale in Silverdale.

This is the fourth time in as many weeks that Powerball First Division has been struck, following on from late-August’s $5 million Powerball win by a Christchurch couple.

The lucky winners plan to use their winnings to go on the trip of a lifetime to Italy.

Four other Lotto players will also be celebrating tonight after each winning $200,000 with Lotto First Division.
