Big Wednesday Jackpots to $11.5 Million

Big Wednesday Jackpots to $11.5 Million in Cash and Luxury Prizes

Big Wednesday has jackpotted meaning next Wednesday's 'ultimate lifestyle' is worth $11.5 million in cash and luxury prizes, NZ Lotteries Chief Executive Todd McLeay said.

"$2 million has been added to the Big Wednesday First Division prizes next week, meaning those Big Wednesday daydreams can grow to another dimension over the coming week," says Mr McLeay.

In next week's draw, on 8 November 2006, Big Wednesday players will be in to win:
- $10 million
- Porsche 911 Carrera
- Range Rover Vogue V8
- $50,000 worth of luxury travel every year for five years
- a $250,000 American Express Platinum card
- a Mustang luxury launch
- a $500,000 bach.

In addition, Big Wednesday Second Division has also jackpotted and next week's prize will be worth more than $450,000

A player who bought their Big Wednesday ticket at Waiuku Paper Plus in Auckland has won a Mercedes Benz in tonight's Big Wednesday second chance draw.

The winning serial number is 429-40656651-13XX.

Waiuku Paper Plus is the same outlet which sold the winning Lotto Powerball First Division ticket, worth $2 million, in last Saturday's Lotto draw.

Every ticket bought for tonight's draw was entered in the second chance draw. The prize won was determined by the H or T selection on the first line of the ticket. As the ticket selection correctly matched the Tail coin toss in the draw, they won a Mercedes Benz.

"Anyone who bought their ticket from Waiuku Paper Plus in Auckland should check it immediately," says Mr McLeay.

There were a total of 120,890 winners from tonight's draw.

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
