Strike Four was won last night by two players from Tauranga and Otago, who took home $250,000 each. The winning Strike tickets were sold at AJ's Lotto in Tauranga and on MyLotto to a player in Otago.


Powerball was not struck last night and has rolled over to Wednesday night, where the jackpot will be $34 million.


“High jackpots capture the imagination of Kiwis all around the country and we know Kiwis will be dreaming about what they would do if they won $34 million with Powerball on Wednesday,” says Marie Winfield, Head of Communications and Corporate Social Responsibility at Lotto NZ.


“We’re expecting Lotto stores around the country to be busy, so players should get in early to make sure they’re in to win.”


Meanwhile, two lucky Lotto players from Pukekohe and Christchurch will be celebrating after each winning $500,000 with Lotto First Division in Saturday night’s live Lotto draw.


The winning tickets were sold at New World Pukekohe in Pukekohe and Fresh Choice Edgeware in Christchurch.


It will be a weekend to remember for 22 Lotto players each winning $23,059 with Lotto Second Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.


Three lucky players also won Powerball Second Division, taking their total winnings to $35,153. The winning Powerball Second Division tickets were sold at Countdown Helensville in Helensville and on MyLotto to players in Auckland and Wellington.


The winning Second Division tickets were sold at MyLotto (X4) (+PB) – Auckland, Windsor Park Superette & Lotto – Auckland, Whitcoulls Botany Downs – Auckland, Clendon Postshop Lotto – Auckland, Countdown Helensville (+PB) – Helensville, Take Note Paeroa – Paeroa, MyLotto – Waikato, Countdown New Plymouth Central - New Plymouth, Countdown Victoria Ave – Whanganui, Pak N Save Petone - Lower Hutt, MyLotto (X2) (+PB) – Wellington, Picton Four Square Super – Picton, MyLotto - West Coast, Wainoni Pak N Save – Christchurch, Pak N Save Riccarton – Christchurch, Arrowtown Night 'n Day – Arrowtown, Musselburgh Food Centre – Dunedin, and MyLotto - Chatham Islands.

Darn it. I keep getting faulty tickets. They don’t do what they’re supposed to do . . . I wonder if I can get a refund . . . :-)
