Hey guys, If I have two numbers plus the bonus ball plus the powerball number, is that a winner?

You need 3 number plus the bonus. The powerball doesn't mean anything , unless you actually win the normal lotto draw too.

They may have an online one. But in that case I think it emails you if you win. I think buying online is the best way to buy them.

It doesn't. I won a couple of weeks ago (on my first ticket in 10 years!) and I had to check the site myself. Pity it was only 6th division... :P

Really, I thought it did. Maybe itonly does if you log in, or you win a big prize. I had heard from someone who won a winning wheel ticket that they purchased online, that a message popped up on screen to tell then they had won a big prize when they logged in.

freitasm: That would be bad. "You have won the NZ Lottery, click here to login" would make any such email go straight to the spam folder.


That is true. However how many banks still send out emails, with links back to their website...quite a few I have found.

Just checked the lotto website, and they do email you if you win over $1000, as per below

How do I know if I have won a prize?

A notification is sent to your account messages inbox as well as an email to your registered email address if you win a prize $1,001 or over. If you login straight after the draw, you can use the check ticket button which is found on the ticket details screen.

I reckon they should adjust the prizes at the lower end to make them more interesting. 5th & 6th division usually have only a few dollars between them: I think they should drop 6th division to be a free power dip ticket ($12 worth), similar to Strike 4; then use the extra money to pump up the 5th division prize to something that will be more exciting to win than $30.
