Big Wednesday has jackpotted with an American Express Platinum card loaded with $250,000 added to the prizes on offer next week, NZ Lotteries Deputy Chief Executive Warren Salisbury 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 next week," says Mr Salisbury.
At the next draw, on 12
April 2006, Big Wednesday players will be in to win:
- $2 million;

"While Big Wednesday was not won again tonight, we can not wait to do it all over again and give away the ultimate lifestyle to a third player," says Mr Salisbury.
"Just like Powerball, Big Wednesday could go at anytime, and we look forward to turning more of our players into Big Wednesday winners soon," says Mr Salisbury.
