A Lotto ticket sold in Rotorua has won its lucky owner almost $30,000 tonight.

Eight Lotto players will be enjoying a midweek windfall after winning $29,688 each with Lotto Second Division in tonight's draw. One of the tickets was sold at Pak'nSave in Rotorua.

Anyone who bought their ticket from there 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 Lotto NZ's ticket-checker smartphone app.

Powerball First Division was not struck and has rolled over to Saturday night where the jackpot will be $25 million.
