Hope you are all well. Let’s finish this week with some lovely news! We can guess that you are also excited to find out what was happening in the lotteries based in New Zealand last week (24 February-1 March). And we are so keen to share all these details with you!
Lotto, also known as one of the leading lotteries in New Zealand, had its usual two draws. These sessions were presented on Wednesday (26 February) and Saturday (29 February). As usual, the most popular lottery in New Zealand was divided into 3 parts: Lotto, Strike! and Powerball.
Overall, the prize pool of $157,292,302 was delivered last week. What is more, 2,590,035 players won any type of prize across both draws. There were 15 jackpot winners at the Lotto division (gaining either $111,111 or $166,667) whereas the game of Strike witnessed 2 jackpot winners who received the largest sum this week - $25,000,000! The Powerball division was more successful than during the week before, having 3 winners who brought $333,333 home.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.
Summing up all 28 sessions which took part during the last week, the multiplier of each draw was fluctuating from 1.5 to 5.Bullseye
During the daily games of Bullseye lottery last week, the lucky numbers for the week of 24 February to 1 March in the particular order: 127,153, 816,199, 305,113, 929,551, 730,781, 126,550, 448,163.
Overall, the average result of this jackpot last week was 497,644. There were no winners of the jackpot last week. However, some great news is coming: 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 17 winners who got prizes from $369 to $1117.
Even though the market of popular lotteries in New Zealand is not really large, 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 ongoing every day. Also, since they do offer the methods of gambling containing little or no risk at all, the participation in these draws is quite easy and pleasant to do.
Best wishes to all winners and participants from us once again. Looking forward to delivering some scores and fun facts to you next time!
