Lotto Brings Christmas Cheer to Two Winners in North and Sou

Lotto Brings Christmas Cheer to Two Winners in North and South
With Christmas just a few days away, two winners from Taupo and Rangiora will be celebrating early after winning $500,000 with Lotto First Division, says NZ Lotteries’ Chief Executive Wayne Pickup.
Their winning Lotto tickets were sold at Whitcoulls Taupo and the Gift And Lotto Shop in Rangiora.
Meanwhile, Powerball was not struck and has jackpotted to $8 million, and Strike has jackpotted to $700,000.
Janice, a retired widow from Whangarei, won $200,000 on the Winning Wheel at the live draw at Wellington’s Avalon studios this evening. 
Tonight’s Winning Wheel ticket was bought by MyLotto player from Christchurch. The serial number is 667-65163019-20xx.
Anyone who bought a ticket from any of the above winning stores should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any Lotto outlet or online at MyLotto.co.nz.
Lotto’s holiday promotion is also underway, giving Lotto Triple Dip players the chance to win one of 200 extra prizes worth over $5 million.
Every Triple Dip purchased during the three-week promotion period, from 16 December 2012 to 5 January 2013, will generate a special promotional voucher with a unique number. The 200 winning voucher numbers will be drawn on Saturday 5 January 2013.
Thanks to Lotto players, thousands of community groups benefit each year from millions in lottery grants.  From your local Plunket to national groups, such as Surf Life Saving and the Coast Guard, lottery grants provide badly needed funding and support.
