A winning Lotto first division ticket sold in Reporoa is yet to be claimed.

It pulled in $166,667 and was sold at the Reporoa Food Market.

A spokeswoman for the store, Margaret, who did not want to use her surname, said last weekend's win was "one of the store's biggest" over her eight years working there as a "jack of all trades".

She said when Reporoa residents win, they normally come in to celebrate with the store.

Margaret said the number of tickets the store sold varied from week to week.

"It depends on how big the draw is. The higher it is the more tickets we sell. On average we do very well from it."

She said she hoped the ticket was sold to a local person, rather than someone just driving through.

"It is not often the locals get a good win."

The Lotto results were posted on the Reporoa Food Market Facebook page yesterday morning.

Congratulations
