It's not a shabby start to the winter for a lucky Strike player from Rotorua after winning $150,000 in tonight's Lotto draw.

The winning ticket was sold at Ngongotaha Books Lotto and Posts and is one of two, the other winning ticket being sold in Omaru at Northside New World.

Powerball was not struck and has rolled over to Saturday night, where the jackpot will be $15 million.

Lotto First Division would be $1 million on Saturday.


Anyone who bought their ticket from any 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.
