A potentially life-changing $26 million Lotto prize struck last night in central Auckland is yet to be claimed.

The winner of the $26.2m fortune secured their lucky ticket from Willy Wonka’s Superette, in downtown Auckland.

Lotto spokeswoman Emilia Mazur said today the winning ticket holder was yet to come forward.

Mazur said the prize was the sixth biggest in New Zealand history.

The total Lotto Powerball prize of $26.2 million is made up of $26,061,898 from Powerball First Division and $200,000 from Lotto First Division.

Last night’s bonanza is the first Powerball prize to be won in 2014.

The win comes almost two years after former supermarket worker Trevor Cooper struck $26.5m.

In October 2010, a Papakura pig hunter won a $28.7m Lotto Powerball prize.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
