Napier ticket bags $2m Lotto prize

21:38, Sep 22 2012

A Napier-bought Lotto ticket struck it lucky tonight, winning the $2 million First Division prize pool.

The winning ticket was sold at Countdown Carlyle in Napier.

NZ Lotteries' Chief Executive Wayne Pickup said the win would undoubtedly be a welcome surprise.

"This prize could pay off the mortgage, buy a new home, or pay for that trip around the world they've been dreaming off," he said.

Powerball has jackpotted this week, and Powerball First Division will be worth $7 million next weekend. Strike has also jackpotted and will be worth $600,000.
