Two lucky Lotto players will be celebrating a midweek windfall after each winning $500,000 with Lotto First Division in tonight's live Lotto draw.

The winning tickets were sold at Selwyn Street Dairy and Nawton Stationers & Lotto in Hamilton.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Saturday night, where the jackpot will be $5 million.

Meanwhile, Strike Four also rolled over tonight and will be $400,000 this Saturday.

Kiwi kids love playing sport and leading active lifestyles. Thanks to Lotto players, schools, clubs and recreation centres all around the country are able to maintain, upgrade and even build new facilities so that kids can continue to play and develop in sport! Good on you Lotto players!

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of the above winning stores should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any Lotto outlet, online at or through the Lotto NZ App.
