$11 million is not a bad pay check and on Saturday night a lucky Auckland Powerball player got just that.
The winning ticket was sold at New World Albany in Auckland. The prize money was made up of $10 million from Powerball First Division and $1 million from Lotto First Division.
This is the second time that Powerball has been struck in less than a month, with two lucky players from Hastings and Christchurch sharing a $5 million Powerball jackpot in mid-September.
Meanwhile, in the Bullseye Must Be Won Draw, the $400,000 jackpot rolled down to Division Two and was shared by two players who each take home $210,001.
The winning tickets were sold at Halswell New World in Christchurch and Westport New World in Westport.
