Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Wednesday night, where the jackpot will be $43 million.

“What a life-changer! If the jackpot is won by a single player on Wednesday, they’ll be taking home the second largest prize ever won in Lotto New Zealand’s history,” says Marie Winfield, Head of Communications and Corporate Social Responsibility at Lotto NZ.

“If it’s won on Wednesday, we know so many people will benefit from this prize. Winners always tell us of the amazing things they plan to do for family, friends and charities close to their hearts. It’s going to make such a difference in their community,” says Marie.

Meanwhile, seven lucky Lotto players from around the country will be celebrating in style after each winning $142,857 with Lotto First Division in tonight’s live Lotto draw.
