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

The winning tickets were sold at Roselands Lotto in Auckland and Westend Dairy & Post Shop in Rotorua.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Wednesday night, where the jackpot will be $6 million.

Meanwhile, Strike Four also rolled over tonight and will be $500,000 this Wednesday.

Every time you play Lotto, you support the important work of the Mental Health Foundation, who provide free information and support to Kiwis in need.

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.
