Lotto luck for Christchurch tickets

05:36, Aug 12 2012

The owner of a lottery ticket sold in Christchurch is $500,000 richer after winning Lotto's First division last night. 

The winning ticket was purchased at Ilam New World. 

A Lotto spokeswoman said the Christchurch winners had not claimed their prize yet. 

Powerball First Division has jackpotted and will be worth an estimated $8 million next week, meanwhile Strike has also jackpotted to $300,000.

Another Christchurch pair struck it lucky last night, too.

Michael and Veronica from Sockburn spun and won $100,000 on the Winning Wheel.

This win has come at the perfect time for the pair, who are currently in court proceedings to save their home.
