Lotto Powerball has jackpotted to $30 million after the $27 million prize up for grabs tonight was not struck.

There were three First Division winners in tonight's Lotto draw. They will take home $333,333 each.

The winning tickets were sold at AJ's Lotto in Tauranga, Trafalgar Lotto in Whanganui and a MyLotto player in Waitakere.

Strike Four also rolled over and will be $500,000 on Saturday.

Earlier, the winning numbers for tonight's $27 million Lotto Powerball draw came in.

They were 29, 4, 3, 11, 28 and 6.

The bonus number was 32 and the Powerball number was 7.

Only four players in Lotto NZ's history have scooped $27m or more.

General manager of corporate communications for Lotto NZ, Emilia Mazur, said 120 players have won big with Powerball over the years. The largest was a $36.8m Big Wednesday prize won by a Masterton family syndicate in 2009.
