7:31 pm on 30 September 2010

The owners of a shop in Reefton on the West Coast say no-one has come in to claim a Lotto prize of $8.9 million.

The winning ticket in the Big Wednesday draw was sold at Gizmos on Broadway, the main street.

Shop owner Sandy Braden says that while no-one has claimed the prize yet, many people came in on Thursday morning to check their tickets.

The same shop sold a $6 million Lotto ticket two years ago.
