NZ Lotto said the lottery winning 1 million NZ $4.68 million was sold at Howick's New World supermarket in Auckland's east.
In addition, a winner in wellington won a $400,000(rmb 10,000) strike prize, and the winning ticket sold at the linden food market.
Meanwhile, after last week's Powerball jackpot, a lucky one has yet to claim his\/her NZ $17.1 million bonus. The town has been buzzing ever since it was announced that the winning ticket was sold at a shop in the South Island town of Twizel.
Marie Winfield, a spokesman for New Zealand Lotto, said she thought the winner might be enjoying a holiday and was unaware of the winning.
\"We're just assuming that he\/she is enjoying a good vacation and not watching the news,\" she said. Either he or she hasn't found out that he or she has won the prize, and apparently there will be a surprise waiting for him or her in the new year.
Typically, winners will contact New Zealand Lotto within days of confirming the prize, but Winfield expects the winner of the $17.1 million New Zealand prize to be in touch with them within weeks.
\"We don't want to take the moment of victory from them, so we'll wait. She added that it was a wonderful way to start a new year and a new decade with a grand prize.
