A Sweet Centre In Store For Lotto Players This Easter

The ultimate kiwi dream - a $500,000 House and Land package, is up for grabs in Lotto's Easter Triple Dip promotion, New Zealand Lotteries Commission Chief Trevor Hall said today.

Lotto players have another chance to win big this Easter, as sixteen great 'nest eggs' prizes are to be won, in the mid-week draw on Wednesday, 30 March.

The other tempting 'nest eggs' players can win in the promotion are ten prizes of $100,000 cash and five of $50,000 cash.

"Our players love the chance to win big prizes whether it's Lotto Powerball, First Division or extra prizes such as these ones through our Triple Dip promotions" said Mr Hall.

Entry into the Lotto Easter promotion is through purchasing a Lotto Triple Dip ticket between Sunday, 13 March and 7pm on Wednesday, 30 March.

Wednesday's draw will have the same elements as a normal Saturday Lotto draw. It will be screened live on TV2 at 9.10pm, with Lotto, Strike, Powerball and Winning Wheel all being drawn.

Mr Hall said Wednesday's mid-week draw adds an exciting element to the Easter holidays for Lotto players.

"There was a positive response from players to the Christmas mid-week draws and we are sure most of them will be looking forward to adding an extra sweetener to the holiday."
