A Wānaka Lotto player won big with Lotto First Division last Wednesday, February 5, collecting her $500,000 from the Albert Town Four Square where she bought the winning ticket. Haley Vuleta, who works at the Four Square, said that the lady, who lives in Albert Town, knew she had won before she came in to collect her prize, and that “everyone was very happy it was somebody local.”
This was the second winning ticket to be sold by the store in just two months. On December 4 last year, another lucky local won $200,000 on Strike Four after purchasing their ticket in Albert Town.
With the Lotto Powerball now at $22 million, may this streak of luck continue.
