Anyone who bought their ticket from any of the above winning stores should check their ticket immediately at any Lotto outlet, online at mylotto.co.nz or through the Lotto NZ App.

Meanwhile, Lotto is considering hiring a private investigator to track down the owner of a ticket that scooped $17.1m on December 28.

The winner has remained anonymous and the windfall is yet to be claimed.
