In the game NZ Powerball, the player is offered to choose 6 any numbers in the range from 1 to 40, and also choose one additional number from 1 to 10.
Since 2012, the administrators of the NZ Powerball lottery have been engaged in charity and have already donated $ 2.8 billion of New Zealand dollars to a variety of funds.
