The winning tickets were sold at Bayfair Lotto in Mount Maunganui and Alexandra New World in Alexandra.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Wednesday night, where the jackpot will be $9 million.

Every you time you play Lotto, you're helping fund the important work of organsations like Garden to Table Trust, who are teaching Kiwi kids how to grow, harvest and prepare fresh, seasonal food. So good on you Lotto players!

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of the above 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.
