Luxury Travel Added To Prize Offer Next Wednesday

Big Wednesday Jackpots - Luxury Travel Added To Prize Offer Next Wednesday

Big Wednesday has jackpotted with $50,000 worth of luxury travel every year for five years added to the 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," says Mr Hall.

Last week's Big Wednesday draw, resulted in NZ Lotteries giving away its third largest individual prize, with the winner picking up over $13 million in cash and luxury prizes, as a result of winning Big Wednesday First and Second Division.

At the next draw, on 22 February 2006, Big Wednesday players will be in to win:

- $2 million;

- Porsche 911 Carrera;

- Range Rover Vogue V8;

- $50,000 worth of luxury travel every year for five years;

"It has been a very exciting week with our first big winner claiming their prize. While Big Wednesday was not won again tonight, we can not wait to do it all over again and give away the ultimate lifestyle to a second player," says Mr Hall.

"Just like Powerball, Big Wednesday could go at anytime, and we look forward to turning more of our players into Big Wednesday winners soon," says Mr Hall.

Although the big prize was not won tonight, there were a total of 55,080 winners from the draw.

A ticket sold at Foodtown Lotto Greenlane in Auckland won Big Wednesday's second chance draw, open to all tickets bought for tonight's draw. The ticket holder has won a prize of $25,000

The winning serial number is 170-56718601-13XX

"Anyone who bought their ticket from Foodtown Lotto Greenlane should check it immediately," Mr Hall says.
