5 December 2005

Mt Roskill, Tauranga, Masterton And Wellington Lotto Tickets Could Be Winning Wheel Winners

Five Lotto players are a trip to their Lotto shop away from coming to Wellington after tonight's Winning Wheel bonus draw, and a Whangaparaoa woman has taken home a $100,000 prize from the Winning Wheel, New Zealand Lotteries Commission (NZ Lotteries) Chief Executive Trevor Hall announced today.

The winning serial numbers for draw 965, Saturday 3 December 2005 are:

Store Town Serial Number Paper Power and Lotto Mt Roskill, Auckland 096-59756822-20XX Greerton Lotto Tauranga 095-41947912-20XX Kuripuni Lotto & Post Masterton 096-38739214-20XX Kirby's Candies Wellington 086-18165509-20XX Strathmore Four Square Wellington 096-30950685-20XX

The tickets will expire 12 months from the date they were drawn.

"We want to make sure all our winners come forward and claim their chance to win big on Winning Wheel," says Mr Hall.

"Winning tickets are identified by the serial number which is located at the bottom right-hand corner of every Lotto ticket," says Mr Hall.

Mr Hall says that since the Winning Wheel started on Saturday's live Lotto draw in August last year, 71 Lotto players from all over New Zealand have claimed their prize and spun and won a prize valued between $25,000 and $1 million. The two biggest winners have walked away with $1 million in cash.

Winners – who come to the Capital with a support person and get to stay at the luxury Duxton Hotel, have exhibition passes to Te Papa, a shopping trip with a stylist to choose clothes for their TV appearance and a lunch date with a Lotto presenter - have said the trip to Wellington to spin the Winning Wheel has become a once-in-a-lifetime memory.

"Players can check their ticket by going to any Lotto store and running their ticket through a terminal, or by logging on to NZ Lotteries website and checking their ticket against the winning serial numbers.
