New Zealand Powerball winner

The distance between Russia and New Zealand is roughly 16,188.5 kilometres. So how did one of theLotter UK’s Silver VIP members win a fantastic New Zealand Powerball prize of NZ$175,887.34 from Russia? By playing it globally, of course! A Russian native, V.K. has only been with theLotter UK for a month and has already won big by choosing to play from over 45 of the world's biggest lotteries online!

V.K.’s quick win with theLotter UK in June 2013 bears a resemblance to theLotter UK’s $1 million US Powerball winner from April of last year, who had received the good news about his seven-digit prize just a few weeks after becoming a member! Like theLotter UK’s big Powerball winner, V.K. purchased his winning ticket with a subscription entry to automatically play New Zealand Powerball’s thrilling weekly draw and receive every 10th ticket free! By using an eight-number systematic form, V.K. was able to produce all possible entry combinations of his selected numbers and increase the odds of winning a prize! In doing so, V.K. not only matched six regular numbers but also was able to multiply lower secondary prizes to come away with a big Lotto NZ payday! Saturday’s draw produced winning numbers 2, 7, 14, 23, 30, 33 bonus number 5 and Powerball 8.

V.K.’s decision to opt for an eight number systematic form proved to be an extremely beneficial move. He won the second place prize of NZ$142,857, but with additional lines he was able to win a number of secondary prizes that were multiplied to create an even bigger pay-out! V.K.’s eight-number systematic form awarded him a 5th place prize of NZ$2,316 and 6th place prize of NZ$560, each recurred a total of 6 times! In addition, V.K. won a 9th place prize of NZ$95 that was multiplied 15 times over! In total, V.K.’s winning strategy yielded him an additional NZ$33,030.34 in prizes on top of the match 6 win! Talk about beginner’s luck!

New Zealand Powerball’s jackpot, which currently stands at an impressive NZ$7 million, hasn’t been won since the beginning of the month when a lucky player matched all six regular numbers and the Powerball number for an amazing NZ$9,855,737 jackpot! Luckily for V.K., there are no taxes on New Zealand Powerball prizes, meaning that this huge win will be delivered in full directly to his bank account.
