Unichem Stortford Lodge has sold a winning $200,000 Lotto First Division ticket for the second week in a row.

The Hastings pharmacy was among five stores around the country to sell the winning ticket in Wednesday night's live Lotto draw.

Unichem Stortford Lodge holds the record for selling more First Division winning tickets than any other outlet in NZ.

Wednesday night's win was its 49th. It also had an $11 million Powerball ticket win two months ago.


Store general manager Carol Ormerod said the win, like every other, brought a buzz for staff.

While she had no idea why they are so "lucky", she said it never gets old.

Their winning streak has also sparked an increase in customers trying their luck.

And it isn't just those who live in Hawke's Bay.

"We get comments all the time saying they were in Hastings and had to come to us," she said.

However, Hawke's Bay's luck did not stop at Unichem. Another player from Hastings won Strike and took home $57,143.

The winning ticket was sold at Pak'nSave Hastings.
