A $500,000 prize for a winning ticket sold in Tauranga has been claimed, a Lotto spokeswoman confirmed this afternoon.

Two Lotto players from Tauranga and Porirua each won $500,000 with Lotto First Division in last night's live Lotto draw.

The winning tickets were sold at New World Brookfield in Tauranga and Countdown Porirua in Porirua.

Powerball was not struck yesterday evening and so it has rolled over to Wednesday night, where the jackpot will be $6 million.
