It will be high-fives all around for a Lotto player tonight after winning $1 million with Lotto First Division in tonight's live Lotto draw.

The winning ticket was sold at Pioneer New World in Palmerston North.

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

Meanwhile, Strike Four has also rolled over tonight and will be $200,000 on Saturday night.

Every morning this week, hot air balloons will fill the skies over Waikato as part of the Lotto-funded 'Balloons over Waikato' festival. By playing Lotto, you help fund amazing community events like this all around the country. Good on you!

Anyone who bought their ticket from Pioneer New World 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.
