A Lotto player won $ 16.5 million tonight.
They won a Division One half share on a ticket that also had the Powerball number valued at $ 16 million.
Lotto has confirmed that the winning bettor is from Hamilton.
The ticket was sold through MyLotto.
Another player won the other half of Division 1, but his ticket did not have the Powerball number.
And a third player won $ 200,000, with Strike 4.
Tonight’s numbers were: 29, 19, 17, 26, 32 and 39. Powerball is 2 and Bonus Ball is 22.
There have been many big Lotto Powerball wins this year.
In February, a lucky Christchurch MyLotto player scored $ 22.5 million with Powerball First Division.
This winner said he looks forward to starting his family and making lots of memories with them in the future.
Last month, an Aucklander revealed that it took some time to convince his wife to believe they just won $ 12.3 million.
“When I told my wife she thought I was kidding… I had to convince her that we won,” the Auckland man told the Herald.
The lucky winner, who wished to remain anonymous, said he usually collects a Loto ticket when he is “on the go”. This time it was at the Hylite Dairy in Gray Lynn.
“I was in the area this weekend and just popped into the dairy – so glad I did. Just played random numbers on a Triple Dip ticket.
“I saw online Saturday night that Hylite Dairy had sold a winning Powerball ticket and immediately decided to check my ticket – after all, it’s not too often that you see the store where you purchased your ticket. come across as having sold a big winner, ”he said.
“I was absolutely stunned when I saw all the numbers lined up on my ticket – I was blown away.”
With his spirit still racing, the winner immediately announced the good news to his wife.
“I turned to my wife and said, ‘You won’t believe it, we won Powerball!’ And you know what, I was right – she didn’t believe me at all, “he laughed.
“We sat together comparing our ticket to the results on MyLotto over and over again, until we were finally both happy to see nothing – we had really made $ 12.3 million!”
It was the tenth time Powerball First Division has been hit so far this year, and the second time in just three weeks that an Auckland player has achieved a big win with Powerball.
