Camper on the cards for Motueka Lotto winner

09 March 2016

A lucky Motueka Lotto player is gearing up for the trip of a lifetime after winning $100,000 with Lotto first division recently.

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, is packing up his life, buying a campervan and traveling around the country with his wife – a trip the couple have always dreamed of taking.

“We’ve always wanted to travel around New Zealand and really see all the beautiful things in our very own backyard,” said the winner.

“We just never imagined we would be able to do it so soon!”

But there was one thing the winner had to do before he could begin making his dream trip a reality – check his ticket!

“I actually carried the ticket around in my wallet for a good three weeks before I got around to checking it – I had no idea it was worth so much money,” laughed the winner.

“It wasn’t until I popped into the store to buy another ticket that I found out just how lucky that yellow piece of paper was – I couldn’t believe it when the machine made a noise and they told me what I’d won.

“It was such an awesome moment - I’ll never forget it,” the winner said.

When it came to celebrating his newfound fortune, the winner knew exactly what he wanted to do.

“I treated my friends and family to a special dinner that night and surprised everyone with the news and a bottle of French champagne – they were pretty excited to say the least!” the winner said.

The winning ticket was sold at Motueka New World in Motueka.

Another Lotto First Division winning ticket was sold at Motueka New World for the same Lotto draw on 10 February and has also been claimed.
