Lotto players from Rotorua and Porirua will be popping the champagne after each winning $500,000 with Lotto First Division in Saturday's live Lotto draw.

The winning Lotto tickets were sold at Pak N Save Rotorua in Rotorua and Plimmerton Four Square in Porirua.

A player who bought their ticket from Te Puke New World is also celebrating a win after winning $27,856 with Lotto's Second Division.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has rolled over to Wednesday night, where the jackpot will be $8 million.

Meanwhile, Strike Four also rolled over and will be $500,000 on Wednesday.

With summer holidays in full swing, Kiwi families are making the most of great weather and the outdoors.

Anyone who bought their ticket from either of the above stores should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any Lotto outlet, online at MyLotto.co.nz or through the Lotto NZ ticket-checker app.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
