A lucky punter has woken up $44 million richer this morning after a single ticket won the biggest prize in New Zealand lottery history.
The golden ticket was sold at Dairy Flat Food Mart and Liquor, north of Auckland.
Eyes are on the North Shore shop to see if it will be claimed in store or whether the country's overnight multi-millionaires were headed to Lotto's Wellington headquarters to bag the mindblowing winnings.
Fourteen first division winners bagged $66,667.00. Three were from Auckland City, and one each from Mt Wellington, Pt England, Canterbury, Albany, Wairoa, Napier, Orakei, Mangere, St Heliers, Masterton, Christchurch and Te Awamutu.
The winning numbers for last night's record-breaking $44 million Lotto Powerball draw were 3, 21, 22, 1, 30, 29 and the bonus number was 5.
The winning powerball number is 6.
