Big Wednesday Jackpots – $8.5 million plus
Big Wednesday Jackpots – $8.5 million plus luxury prizes on offer next Wednesday.
The new lottery game, Big Wednesday, has jackpotted, with $8.5 million cash and other luxury prizes on offer next week, NZ Lotteries Chief Executive Trevor Hall 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.
At the next draw, on 25 January, Big Wednesday players will be in to win:
- $8.5 million;
- Porsche 911 Carrera;
- Range Rover Vogue V8;
- $50,000 worth of luxury travel every year for five years;
- $250,000 American Express Platinum card;
- Mustang luxury launch; and
- $500,000 holiday home.
"All the same 'goodies' that were on offer last week are still there, but added to that is more cash, a million more.
"Now that's an ultimate lifestyle, and if won next week, what a perfect way to kick off 2006.
"Our very first First Division Big Wednesday winner will never have to look at a price tag again. They'll be able to travel the globe using their luxury travel prize. They'll also have $8.5 million in the bank and a Porsche and Range Rover in the garage, not to mention a luxury launch in the boat harbour and a holiday home to enjoy," says Mr Hall.
"We've had two players just a coin toss away from winning Big Wednesday First Division. Both players had the correct six numbers line up on their ticket, but the coin toss did not go their way. Because of this they won Big Wednesday Second Division."
A ticket from Radius Care (Peter Dunkerley) Pharmacy in Hastings won Big Wednesday's serial number draw, open to all tickets bought for tonight's draw. The ticket holder has won a prize of a Mercedes Benz C240 luxury car.
The winning serial number is 142-01822478-13XX
"Anyone who has a ticket from Radius Care (Peter Dunkerley) Pharmacy should check it immediately," Mr Hall says.
Although the big Division One prize was not won tonight, there were a total of 74,695 winners from the draw.
