Two Lotto players from Wairoa and Waitara have uncovered a golden easter egg after winning $500,000 each with Lotto First Division in last night's Lotto draw.

The winning tickets were sold at Mobil Wairoa and New World Waitara.

Powerball was not struck and has rolled over to Wednesday night, where the jackpot will be $14 million.

Strike Four has also rolled over to Wednesday night where it will be worth $300,000.


Anyone who bought their ticket from either of the above winning stores should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any Lotto outlet, online at or through the Lotto NZ ticket-checker app.
