Cracker Christmas Present for Twenty-Nine Lotto Players

Twenty-nine Lotto players got a cracker Christmas present this year, winning $15,704 with Second Division on Saturday’s Christmas Eve Lotto draw, says NZ Lotteries Chief Executive Trevor Hall.

“Imagine sitting there on Christmas Eve getting the food ready for Santa when you find out you’ve won more than $15,000 – what a cracker start to Christmas.

“These winners are each taking home almost $16,000, enough to ensure they and their families have the best Christmas ever,” says Mr Hall.
