Just two weeks ago the 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.

Although the big prize was not won tonight, there were a total of 53,327 winners from the draw.

Big Wednesday is a jackpotting game. The 1st Division prize jackpots each week the 1st Division is not won. The First Division prize pool will always start with a minimum of $2 million plus luxury cars. If it is not won, the jackpot will rollover to the next week and another luxury prize will be added.
A luxury prize will be added to the jackpot each week for the first four weeks if the top prize is not won. After that the cash component of the top prize will start to increase but no more luxury prizes will be added.
