Taradale Ticket First To Enjoy New Prizes

Taradale Ticket First To Enjoy Big Wednesday's New Prizes

A lucky Big Wednesday player who purchased their ticket in Taradale will be the first Kiwi to get up-close and personal with Big Wednesday's exciting, new ultimate lifestyle, says NZ Lotteries Chief Executive, Todd McLeay.

The lucky player, who purchased their ticket at New World, Taradale has won for themselves $2 million cash plus Big Wednesday's stylish new vehicles, an Aston Martin V8 Vantage and an Audi Q7.

"Big Wednesday has just launched an exciting new set of prizes, and we are delighted that we already have a winner who will get to experience these stylish new cars first hand," says Mr McLeay.

Big Wednesday's new line-up was launched after Big Wednesday was struck last week by a player who purchased their ticket at Magascene in Takapuna, Auckland. The lucky winner took home more than $3 million in cash and luxury prizes.

"Not only does tonight's winner have the honour of being the first to experience our new cars, but they have also taken the number of Big Wednesday First Division winners into double figures," says Mr McLeay.

Mr McLeay's advice for this week's Big Wednesday winner is to write their name and address on their ticket, confirming their ownership.

"They should then contact NZ Lotteries Wellington office on (04) 802 7000, and we can provide advice about the next steps to take," he said.

A ticket sold at Buyrite 4 Square & Lotto in Te Puke won Big Wednesday's second chance draw, open to all tickets bought for tonight's draw. The ticket holder has won an Audi A4 1.8T Cabriolet.

The winning serial number is 471-16386567-13XX

"Anyone who bought their ticket from New World Taradale or Buyrite 4 Square & Lotto in Te Puke should check it immediately," says Mr McLeay.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

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.
