One lucky player has won Lotto Powerball, netting a massive $42 million.
The prize is the second biggest in Lotto history and was won by a player from the North Waikato town of Pokeno.
The winning numbers were:
- 2, 3, 4, 7, 19, 31.
- The bonus ball was 8 and the Powerball 9.
As news of the massive win spread, the Lotto app and web site were overwhelmed with users desperate to check if they had the winning ticket, causing the services to be down at times.
