A Gisborne retailer is continuing their golden run with Lotto winners, the latest a $6.5 million win on Saturday.

The player won the Powerball First Division prize after buying their ticket at retailer Grant Bros on Gladstone Rd.

The prize comprises $6 million from Powerball First Division and $500,000 from Lotto First Division.

It is the second time in three weeks the top Powerball prize has been won, and is just the latest in a string of winner at the store.

It sold a second division $15,000 ticket the week before Christmas and also the only two Gisborne-winning $10,000 Lotto Christmas Promo tickets.

In February, Powerball players from Auckland and Christchurch won $3.8 million each, both saying they'd pay off their mortgages and help out friends and family with their newfound fortunes.
