One lucky Lotto player from Auckland has struck it big time, bagging more than $16 million in the latest draw.

In total, the Division One Powerball winner nabbed $16,250,000 and their ticket was purchased on MyLotto.

It is the sixth time this year Powerball has been struck, following on from an $11 million win by a Hawke's Bay player in March.

The winning numbers were 09, 18, 21, 27, 34, 35, Bonus 11 and the Powerball 10.

Meanwhile, a punter from Whangārei managed to claim all four Strike numbers to win a total of $500,000 with the numbers 34, 35, 09 and 21.

Forty-five New Zealanders became overnight millionaires in 2018 after winning big in Lotto.

Helping out their "nearest and dearest", buying a new house and indulging in some international travel were top priorities for these winners.

Over half put their money towards someone else, 37 per cent opted for travel and 32 per cent of winners bought a new house.

New Zealand's "luckiest store" is Unichem Stortford Lodge, in the Hawke's Bay. This store has sold 45 first division winning tickets – amounting to more than $28 million in winning.

Ten luckiest stores of all time:

1. Unichem Stortford Lodge Pharmacy, Hastings - 45 first division winning tickets.

2. Richmond Night N Day, Nelson - 34 first division winning tickets.
