Central Otago Lotto ticket wins $8.25 million

Dec 10, 2023

A lucky Lotto player from Central Otago will be celebrating in style after winning $8.25 million with Powerball First Division in yesterday's live Lotto draw. The winning ticket was sold on MyLotto.

The prize is made up of $8 million from Powerball First Division and $250,000 from Lotto First Division. 

Yesterday's winner is the eighteenth Powerball multi-millionaire of 2023, and the win comes just weeks after a $8.3 million Powerball prize was won by a couple in Whakatāne. The couple are looking forward to helping the future generations with their win.

Three other lucky Lotto players will also be celebrating after each winning $250,000 with Lotto First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw. The winning tickets were sold at Woolworths Newtown in Wellington, and on MyLotto to players from Napier and Carterton.

Meanwhile, one lucky Strike player will also be celebrating after winning $300,000 with Strike Four. The winning Strike ticket was sold at Victory on the Spot in Nelson. 

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of the above stores should check their ticket as soon as possible in-store, on MyLotto, or through the MyLotto App.
