A Stoke man is $666,667 richer after a Lotto win.
The man claimed his prize at the Black Cat dairy in Annesbrook Dr yesterday afternoon
He was one of three first-division winners in Saturday’s draw, each netting $666,667. The two other winners are in Auckland and Mosgiel.
Black Cat manager Tania Murray said he was a local man who was regular, and had chosen his own numbers for his ticket.
It was also a thrill for the store which last sold a winning first-division ticket about eight years ago.
Powerball was not struck on Saturday and has jackpotted to $6 million.
