Big Wednesday $4.1 Million Ultimate Lifestyle Waiting to be Claimed

A lucky player, or players, who bought a ticket at Grey Lynn Stationers in Auckland, and won cash and luxury prizes worth a total of $4.1 million with Big Wednesday First Division in last night's draw, are still to claim their prize, says NZ Lotteries Chief Executive Trevor Hall.

The prize is the second Big Wednesday First Division prize to be won, with a ticket sold at Martina Four Square in Thames winning more than $13 million in cash and luxury prizes just six weeks ago.

Pat Patel from Grey Lynn Stationers says that she is thrilled to have sold the winning ticket.

"We're over the moon, it's just wonderful. To think that this is only the second time a big prize has been won on the Big Wednesday game and we sold it!"

"We've had heaps of people in-store to check their tickets today, but so far no-one's had the big one."

Mr Hall says whoever has the winning Big Wednesday prize ticket should immediately write their name on the back of the ticket, keep it in a safe place and contact NZ Lotteries Wellington office.

"We'd like to meet them so that we can talk them through their win and provide them with any advice they require. They are about to begin living the ultimate lifestyle, and we want it to begin in the best way possible," says Mr Hall. The number is 04 802 7000.

The Big Wednesday First Division winner has won:

- $2,569,628; - 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 a - $500,000 holiday home.

"The 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 $2.6 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.

"We urge everyone who bought a ticket at Grey Lynn Stationers to check their tickets and we look forward to meeting our winner soon," says Mr Hall.
