NEW ZEALAND — The lucky winner of a $1 million lotto drawing in New Zealand credits karma for the win.

The unidentified man was waiting in line at his local Pak N Save Papamoa on his way home from work when a customer cut in front of him.

“I wasn’t in any hurry, so I just let them go ahead and didn’t say anything,” he said. “I guess good karma pays off – if that hadn’t happened, they might have had the winning ticket not me.”

Several days later, he and his wife went to the Lotto shop and handed the ticket in, reported the News Zealand Herald.

They said the first thing on their list to buy- a home of their own.
