Icing on Gisborne Lotto winners’ cake
A major Lotto win in Gisborne in last Saturday's draw has been claimed with the winner picking up three prizes on the one ticket.
The winning ticket, bought from Grant Bros in Gladstone Road, was one of three winners of the $1 million First Division prize on Saturday night.
The winners pocketed $333,333 for that but their good fortune did not end there.
They also won a Third Division prize worth $558, and a Fifth Division prize worth $28 on the same ticket.
“That's quite incredible,” said Renee Grant of Grant Bros. “We're really, really happy for them.”
The ticket was claimed at the Lifeline Convenience and Lotto store in Grey Street.
“A man and woman came in, middle-aged, and went to the ticket checker machine to scan their ticket,” said proprietor Sam Modi.
“When their ticket proved to be the winner they seemed stunned but very happy. They told me they did not know they had won.”
