Big Wednesday Prize Swells

Big Wednesday has jackpotted with $500,000 added to the prizes on offer next week, NZ Lotteries Deputy Chief Executive Warren Salisbury said tonight.

At the next draw, on 28 June 2006, Big Wednesday players will be in to win:
- $3 million;
- Porsche 911 Carrera;
- Range Rover Vogue V8;
- $50,000 worth of luxury travel every year for five years;
- an American Express loaded with $250,000;
- Mustang luxury launch; and
- $500,000 Bach

"Big Wednesday could go at anytime, we can not wait to do it again so another player can win the ultimate lifestyle," says Mr Salisbury.

"Just six weeks ago our Big Wednesday First Division prize was struck for the third time, by a ticket bought in Whangamata. The holder of that ticket won over $4 million in cash and luxury prizes," says Mr Salisbury.

Although the big prize was not won tonight, there were a total of 55,384 winners from the draw.

A ticket sold at Caltex Orewa in Auckland won Big Wednesday's second chance draw, open to all tickets bought for tonight's draw. The ticket holder has won $25,000.

The winning serial number is 296-12600321-13XX

"Anyone who bought their ticket from this outlet should check it immediately," Mr Salisbury says.
