An Opunake resident is $100,000 richer after scratching a lucky Instant Kiwi ticket.

The winner, who wanted to remain anonymous, bought the Texas Hold'em ticket from Opunake Post and Lotto on Saturday.

Owner Graeme Dodd said they had left the shop but quickly returned and he had whispered to his wife ''I think that I've won a big prize here.''

Dodd said it was ''fantastic'' the prize had gone to a local and hoped it would start a flood of prizes.
