Queen St Lotto buyer becomes new multi-millionaire

Lotto luck struck again last night with a $6.5 million ticket being won in Auckland.

The latest multi-millionaire won with a combined $6m from Powerball jackpot plus $500,000 from Lotto First Division. The winning ticket was sold at Fix St James in Queen St, Auckland.

Chief executive Wayne Pickup said: "This is the fifth Powerball multi-millionaire to be created in 2012 and comes three weeks after a Napier couple won $10.3 million."

Last night at the winning store, a worker said he had no idea who had won the jackpot.

Meanwhile, Allan, a dairy farmer from Putaruru, spun and won $250,000 on the Winning Wheel at the live draw in Wellington last night.
