First of all, we hope that your last week was fantastic! Also, some really exciting stuff was going on during the most popular lottery games across New Zealand last week (17-23 February). We are really keen to share all these details with you!
Lotto, also known as one of the leading lotteries in New Zealand, had two draws last week. These sessions were presented on Wednesday (19 February) and Saturday (22 February). As usual for any of these draws, the most popular lottery in New Zealand is traditionally divided into 3 parts: Lotto, Strike! and Powerball.
Overall, the prize pool of $72,269,889 was delivered last week. What is more, 1,416,036 players won a prize across both draws last week. There were 7 jackpot winners at the Lotto division (gaining either $200,000 or $500,000) whereas the game of Strike witnessed 4 jackpot winners who received $200,000 each. The Powerball division did not give away its jackpot to any of the players last week.Keno
Keno is a lottery ongoing on a daily basis with draws taking place 4 times per day (10 AM, 1 PM, 3 PM and 6 PM) - therefore, players are quite proactive due to the frequency and difficulty level - this game is quite straight-forward and somehow similar to the popular game of bingo.
Summarizing all 28 sessions which took part during the last week, the multiplier of each draw was fluctuating from 1.5 to 10.Bullseye
During the daily games of Bullseye lottery last week, the lucky numbers for the week of 17 February to 23 February in a particular order: 213,677, 869,347, 839,635, 279,255, 205,828, 214,036, 753,318.
After estimating the final numbers, the average result of this jackpot last week was equal to 482,157. There were no winners of the jackpot last week. However, there was some great news: the Division 2 (also known as the second best option to win) had 1 winner who brought home the prize of $10,000. For the Division 3, there were 9 winners who got prizes from $359 to $1,201.
Even though the number of popular lotteries in New Zealand is not really large in comparison with other similar countries, the format of most of them allow players to gamble and play without any additional struggle or inconvenience to their usual routines. This happens since most lotteries are occurring every day. Also, they do offer nearly non-risky methods of gambling, the participation in these draws is nice and easy.
Best wishes to all winners and participants from us once again. Looking forward to delivering some scores and fun facts to you next time!
