A shop owner who sold the ticket that won New Zealand's richest lottery prize says her store has an incredible winning streak.

The winner took both the first and second divisions of Lotto's Big Wednesday competition earning almost $37 million in cash and other prizes.

Maureen Taute of the Kuripuni Post & Lotto shop in Masterton says it's the third big prize sold there in the past two months.

The win was the longest running jackpot in Lotto history. Nearly five million tickets were sold for the draw.
