New Zealand Powerball
New Zealand Powerball was introduced to the nation in February 2001 as an additional game to the main New Zealand Lotto but quickly established itself as one of the biggest lotteries in New Zealand. The game takes place every Wednesday and Saturday and is run by the New Zealand Lotteries Commission (Lotto NZ).
The latest results, including the prize breakdown, are published on the Results page, as soon as they have been verified.
The last jackpot was: $8,000,000
History of the New Zealand Powerball
The first New Zealand draw was held in February 2001 but unlike other independently operated Powerball games across the globe, the New Zealand game can only be played alongside the main New Zealand Lotto game.
In October 2007, the minimum jackpot value increased from NZD$1 million to NZD$3 million and the Powerball ball pool increased from eight numbers to ten numbers.
New Zealand Powerball have recently introduced new game changes, which include an increase in the maximum jackpot from NZD$30 million to NZD$50 million and bigger prizes for each division. The first draw under the new rules will take place on Wednesday 5th April.
