Mystery Taupo multi-millionaire yet to come forward

New Zealand's newest multi-millionaire still hasn't collected their money yet, after winning $30 million in Lotto's Powerball on Saturday.

The winning ticket was sold at Richmond Superette in Taupo, but while the store has been flooded by keen ticket checkers, the actual winner hasn't yet come forward.

"This is the third largest Powerball prize ever won in New Zealand and the lucky winner is just one step away from being able to turn their dreams into a reality - all they need to do is check their ticket," Lotto NZ's Kirsten Robinson said.

She said anyone who bought a ticket from the store should write their name on the back of it before checking it either online, on their app, or at a Lotto outlet.

The dairy's store manager, Jessica, told Newshub they can't believe they sold the winning ticket.

"We are very excited too, waiting for the winning one to come to collect the big prize," she told Newshub.

The numbers drawn were 37, 3, 24, 20, 9 and 15. The bonus ball was 16 and the Powerball number was 1.

The $30 million win is the third largest to be struck in the country, after a $44 million win in Auckland last November and a $33 million win, also in Auckland, in September 2013.
