The winners of two massive Lotto prizes in the past week have yet to claim their millions.
Neither the winner of Saturday's $33 million Powerball, nor the $22 million Big Wednesday ticket holder had yet made contact, New Zealand Lotteries spokeswoman Emilia Mazur said this morning.
It is five days since the $22 million Big Wednesday prize was won by a ticket bought in Christchurch.
The Big Wednesday prize - the third largest in the game's history - was won with a ticket purchased from Pak'nSave Riccarton.
The $33 million prize - the largest individual Powerball prize in the game's history - was won by a single ticket sold in Auckland.
Shoe repair store One Step Ahead, in Ponsonby, said since the win was announced the phone has been ringing off the hook.
"We're a little bit shell-shocked," said owner Alison Ashton. "We're not usually open on a Sunday but we've been here this morning and a few regulars have been coming by to check if it was them."
The store has sold six first division- winning tickets in its history, Ashton said.
Saturday night's prize had to go after the jackpot passed the $30m threshold.
Normally, winners have to pick all six numbers and the Powerball but because no-one picked all the correct numbers it dropped down to second division.
The winning ticket had five numbers, the bonus ball and the all-important Powerball.
Two punters will be kicking themselves after picking all six Lotto numbers but not the Powerball.
The pair get $500,000 each.
New Zealand Lotteries spokeswoman Emilia Mazur said the largest unclaimed prize previously has been $1m won on Lotto first division in March this year.
