Lotto's $30 million jackpot has gone unstruck.

The drawn numbers are 22, 19, 30, 23, 15, 36 and the bonus number 31. The winning powerball number is 9.

While the jackpot is unstruck two winners from Wairoa and Patea have won $500,000 each from first division.

Big Wednesday's prize will be $34 million.

Lotto spokeswoman Emilia Mazur said this will be one of the largest jackpots in New Zealand's history.

"If a single player is lucky enough to win big on Wednesday, they'll be taking home the second largest prize ever won in New Zealand - it's life-changing."

The last time the Powerball jackpot was over $30 million was in June when the Powerball jackpot climbed to a $40 million Must Be Won Draw in early July. Three lucky players shared the $40 million Powerball jackpot, each taking home $13.3 million.

Tonight's first division winners bought their tickets at Johansen's Lotto in Wairoa and Patea Four Square in Patea.

Strike Four was also won by a player from Dunedin, who takes home $515,850. The winning ticket was sold at Mornington Lotto & Post.
