More Reasons To Play With Lotto's Winning Wheel

Media Release
13 September 2004


This week all Lotto players will have four extra reasons to buy a ticket with a special Lotto Winning Wheel promotion featuring five winning serial numbers, New Zealand Lotteries Commission (NZLC) Deputy Chief Executive Warren Salisbury announced today.

"This Saturday, 18 September, four extra serial numbers will be drawn, giving players a total of five chances to spin and win up to $1 million on Winning Wheel as well as win with Lotto, Lotto Powerball and Lotto Strike," said Mr Salisbury.

"We've had a great response from players to Winning Wheel, and we'd like to give more of them the chance to come on to Saturday's Lotto draw and win one of our cash or non-cash prizes valued at an average of $220,000."

Since 21 August, four Lotto players have become Winning Wheel winners, between them taking home a Volkswagen Golf, two cash prizes of $100,000 and one of $250,000.

Winners - who come to the Capital with a support person and get to stay at the luxury Duxton Hotel, have guest passes to Te Papa, a shopping trip with a stylist to choose clothes for their TV appearance and a meal with a Lotto Presenter - have said the trip to Wellington to spin the Winning Wheel has become a once-in-a-lifetime memory.

Mr Peter McCabe, the first Winning Wheel winner, and his wife Lorraine agreed that "it has all been a great experience and the $250,000 Peter won was like a bonus."

Winners have come from all over New Zealand - Morrinsville, Greymouth, Reefton, Oamaru and Auckland - and all have won on tickets that did not win any other Lotto prizes said Mr Salisbury.

"Winners get a welcome surprise when they check their ticket's unique serial number as Lotto's Winning Wheel gives players another chance to win regardless of whether they have won any other prizes on their Lotto ticket," said Mr Salisbury.

The search continues for the remaining winning tickets sold at Raureka Lotto & Superette in Hastings and Schofields Paper Power in Papatoetoe, Auckland.

Winning Wheel ticket serial numbers still to be claimed:
