Powerball was not struck this evening, meaning the jackpot on Wednesday night will be a cool $22 million.

Three Lotto players from Auckland, Hamilton and Wellington have each won $333,333 in tonight's First Division draw.

The winning tickets were sold at New World Botany in Auckland, Mill St Pak N Save in Hamilton and Railway Metro New World in Wellington.

Strike Four also rolled over tonight and will be $300,000 on Wednesday.

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of these stores 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.
