Lotto: South Island Lotto player scores $9 million

Tonight’s $9 million Lotto prize has been scooped up by a ticket holder in Blenheim.

The Powerball First Division prize winner purchased their ticket from the Redwood Lotto.

It’s the first Powerball win for the year for the South Island town.

The whopping $9 million win is made up of $8 million from Powerball First Division and $1 million from Lotto First Division.

Strike Four was also won tonight by a player from Whanganui, who took home $600,000.

Tonight’s win comes just two weeks after a Palmerston North player won more than $14 million with Powerball First Division.

The winner is planning to buy her first home and help a charity, Lotto said.

The $14.3 million Palmerston North win is the second biggest of the year so far, after two
$25.1 million prizes were won in Auckland in February.
