Two people took home half a million when their numbers came up in Lotto's first division draw on Wednesday night.

The winners were from Gisborne and Maungaturoto.

Network Video Gisborne sold one of the tickets. The other was bought at the Maungaturoto Lotto store.

No one won the Powerball draw.


A $5 million jackpot will now be up for grabs on Saturday.

Strike Four also rolled over to $400,000.

Lotto said players who bought their ticket for one of the winning stores should write their name on the back of it and check their numbers at a Lotto outlet, online at or through the Lotto NZ ticket-checker app.
