The numbers for tonight’s massive Powerball draw have been revealed, with $23 million up for grabs.
Lotto players have the chance to win the massive $23 million Powerball prize, plus $1 million in first division. Strike has hit $700,000 as well.
Saturday night’s Lotto numbers are 2, 13, 10, 17, 19 and 21. The bonus ball is 30 and the Powerball is 1.
It comes after 15 people shared Lotto second division last Saturday, each winning $23,739, and one player won Powerball second division taking home $48,538.
If someone does happen to claim the huge prize, Lotto has revealed not all winners celebrate with champagne.
Speaking on More FM’s Jay-Jay and Flynny on Friday, Lotto’s head of winner experience Lucy Fullarton said while there was a special room for winners at their Auckland HQ, most people opt for a “glass of water” to celebrate.
“They usually haven’t slept or eaten much. They are often in shock, in a funny way, in a good way, they are over the moon.”
Fullarton wouldn’t be drawn on how many extra tickets would be bought for Saturday’s draw, but she did say anecdotally that “more people come in for more tickets” as soon as the jackpot got over the $20 million mark.
