Celebrations will be erupting in one south Auckland home tonight, after a lucky Pukekohe Lotto player scooped $9 million.

The winner will pocket the prize-money after winning the Powerball First Division in tonight's live draw.

The winning ticket was bought at Countdown Pukekohe south, and was made up on $8 million from Powerball First Division and $1 million from Lotto First Division.

It follows a mammoth $27 million Powerball win for a lucky couple from Thames just three weeks ago.


Strike Four was also won tonight, by a player in Rotorua, who will pocket $500,000.

The winning Strike Four ticket was sold at Lucky Lotto Shop in Rotorua.
