It will be a Saturday night to remember for a lucky Powerball player after scoring themselves a massive $11 million with Powerball First Division in tonight's live Lotto draw.

The $11 million prize is made up of $10 million from Powerball First Division and $1 million from Lotto First Division.


The winning ticket was sold at New World Albany in Auckland.

This is the second time that Powerball has been struck in less than a month, with two lucky players from Hastings and Christchurch sharing a $5 million Powerball jackpot in mid-September.

Strike Four rolled over tonight and will be $200,000 on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, in tonight's Bullseye Must Be Won Draw, the $400,000 jackpot rolled down to Division Two and was shared by two players who each take home $210,001. The winning tickets were sold at Halswell New World in Christchurch and Westport New World in Westport.

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of the above winning locations should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any Lotto outlet, online at mylotto.co.nz or through the Lotto NZ ticket-checker app.

Players can phone Lotto NZ on 0800 695 6886 if they want to enquire about the best way to claim a prize.
