Big Wednesday Jackpots – $5.5 million

Media Release
28 December 2005

Big Wednesday Jackpots – $5.5 million plus luxury prizes on Offer Next Wednesday

The new lottery game, Big Wednesday, has jackpotted, with $5.5 million cash and other luxury prizes on offer next week, NZ Lotteries Chief Executive Trevor Hall said tonight.

“Because Big Wednesday Division One has jackpotted, a common occurrence with games of this type, we will be able to offer players an even bigger overall prize in the first draw for 2006 week.

At the next draw, on 4 January 2006, Big Wednesday players will be in to win:

- $5.5 million;
- Porsche 911 Carrera;
- Range Rover Vogue V8;
- $50,000 worth of luxury travel every year for five years;
- $250,000 American Express Platinum card;
- Mustang luxury launch; and
- $500,000 holiday home.

“Next week's players will be in to win all the same ‘goodies’, but added to that is more cash, half a million more.

Our very first First Division Big Wednesday winner will never have to look at a price tag again. They’ll be able to travel the globe using their luxury travel prize. They’ll also have $5.5 million in the bank and a Porsche and Range Rover in the garage, not to mention a luxury launch in the boat harbour and a holiday home to enjoy.

“Now that’s an ultimate lifestyle, and we can’t wait to have our first big winner,” says Mr Hall.

A ticket sold at Rotorua Paper Plus, Rotorua, won Big Wednesday’s serial number draw. The ticket holder has won a prize of $25,000 cash.

The winning serial number is: 121-31215104-13XX.

“Anyone who bought their tickets from Rotorua Paper Plus should check them immediately," Mr Hall says.

Although the big Division One prize was not won tonight, there were a total of 60,012 winners from the draw.
