People are flocking to a Lotto store in Tauranga to see if they bought the Big Wednesday jackpot ticket that won $27 million.

The ticket was sold at AJ's Lotto and Tobacconist where owner Jensen Zeng said people have been coming to check their tickets and to congratulate the store.

The money has not been claimed yet.

NZ Lotteries said that if one person holds the winning ticket, it will be the third biggest individual prize in Lotto's history.
