The ticket that won an Auckland man $33 million has gone
display on a purpose-built plinth under a glass dome at the
Ponsonby store where he bought it.
Lotto New Zealand installed the winning Lotto Powerball
ticket at the One Step Ahead store so people could see for
themselves what a life-changing piece of paper looked like.
A fortnight ago, the self-proclaimed "Westie" became the
largest ever individual Powerball winner when he claimed his
$33 million prize with the ticket.
"This life-changing yellow piece of paper is a unique piece
of Lotto history" said Emilia Mazur, Lotto corporate
One Step Ahead had been buzzing with the news that the big
winner was sold there.
"We've had so many people come in and ask about the big
winning ticket," said owner Gary Ashton.
"Many of our customers are keen to touch it for good luck
when they buy their own Lotto tickets."
