A ''Westie'' has claimed the $33 million Lotto Powerball prize.

The man bought a couple of tickets from different shops in Auckland and says he decided to go to the gym before checking them, because he didn't want to be distracted.

He says he has his wife to thank because he used her lucky number as his Powerball number.

The first thing he wants to do is help friends and family, and maybe get his wife a new car.

While he is remaining cool calm and collected, he says he is actually stressed on the inside.
