New Zealand lotteries: review 2020.05.04-10

Hello everyone!
Hope you are all well and safe! Just for the record once again: many lotteries are still available online and there’s no need to leave home. Don’t worry, as we will also keep you updated with the latest news of lotteries across New Zealand! This time, let’s have a look what happened last week (4-10 May).


The most popular lottery in New Zealand is split into three different sections: Lotto, Strike! and Powerball. All of them are traditionally taking part twice per week - the last one was not an exception with the draws on Wednesday (6 May) and Saturday (9 May).

These Lotto results were quite similar to the trends seen during the last month, meaning that the Lotto division was the only sub-game where the jackpot was won. This time, 2 players landed $1M each - this event happened on both Wednesday and Saturday. Congratulations! Despite the lack of jackpot wins, we’re excited to announce that there was 1 player in Powerball who got the 2nd best prize (for 5 numbers + Bonus + Powerball) worth over $12k. Meanwhile, Strike! did not see the jackpot winners either, yet it was impressive to see more than 100 players landing either $631 or $674 - these prizes were given away for the 2nd best prize too (i.e. 3 numbers in the right order).


Keno is a lottery which is live 4 times per day and 7 days per week. This constant frequency gives more freedom to gamble due to really convenient timings and flexibility there - more chances can be taken. Also, the game is quite easy to enter and play as it is similar to such popular games as bingo.

While looking at all Keno results last week, the multiplier of each draw was fluctuating from 1.5 to 10. What is more, all players can add the multiplier to their ticket for an extra cost. Also, the odds for each multiplier are different.

During the daily games of Bullseye lottery last week, the lucky numbers (bringing the jackpot prize when gambling) were as follows: 455,327, 291,175, 785,602, 876,727, 307,131, 125,283, 250,203

The average result of the lucky number last week was 441,635. Unfortunately, no one won neither the jackpot, nor the 2nd best prize (Division 2) - however, the Division 3 prizes varied between $133 and $1,078 - well done!

As you can see, the lottery market in New Zealand is relatively small, yet many advantages can be found - for example, some very popular games are available everyday. Therefore, gambling becomes a nice and easy activity - why don’t try it next week?

Once again, congratulations to everyone who participated in New Zealand lottery games last week. See you really soon!
