Roselands Lotto shoppers have won big two weeks in a row.

A Papakura couple won $2 million in Lotto's Queen's Birthday Weekend draw.

And another shopper struck gold this weekend, winning $250,000 in Lotto's first division.

The winners of the $2m are regular Lotto players and checked their tickets last Sunday morning as part of their usual routine.

"The first thing I say to my husband on a Sunday morning is: ‘Do you feel like a millionaire today?' Then he jumps out of bed and checks our tickets," one of the lucky winners says.

The answer is normally "not today".

"But we couldn't believe our eyes when we saw all six numbers in a row on our ticket - it put us in a spin."

Now they've claimed their prize they're starting to think of how they will spend it.

"Other than a few indulgences, we're going to be really sensible with the winnings. We'll pay off the mortgage and really set ourselves up for retirement - and the rest of our lives."
