More Than $600,000 Up For Grabs In Big Wednesday

More Than $600,000 Up For Grabs In Big Wednesday Second Division Tomorrow

Big Wednesday's top two prize divisions have both jackpotted for tomorrow night's draw with $4 million plus luxury prizes up for grabs in Division One and more than $600,000 cash to be won in Big Wednesday Second Division, says NZ Lotteries Chief Executive Todd McLeay.

"This is the largest amount we have had on offer in Big Wednesday's Division Two since Big Wednesday began in October 2005," says Mr McLeay.

To win Big Wednesday Division One a player must match all six numbers on one line to those drawn from the ball machine and have the correct heads or tails on the same line. If a player matches all six numbers on one line but the head or tail on that line does not match that draw's coin toss they win Second Division.

Tomorrow night Big Wednesday players could win the following in Big Wednesday First Division:
- $4 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

"If a player were to win Big Wednesday First and Second Division this week they would win cash and prizes with a combined value of more than $6 million," says Mr McLeay.
