A lucky Timaru shopper won a whopping $7 million in last night's Lotto draw.

The winning ticket, which was sold at Timaru Pak'n Save, was made up of $6m from Powerball first division and $1m from Lotto first division.

Strike Four was also hit last night, with a player from Huntly taking home $341,664. This winning ticket was sold at the Bookshop and Lotto in the Waikato town.

Last night's wins come after a Hamilton couple took home $7.5m with a Powerball first division win on Wednesday, December 30.

The duty manager at Timaru Pak'n Save declined to comment, referring inquiries to the store owner who could not immediately be contacted.
