New Year Winning Start For Lotto 1st Div Winners

Winning Start to the New Year For Lotto First Division Winners From Masterton and Christchurch.

Three Lotto players who purchased their Lotto tickets in Masterton and Christchurch (2) have 389,569 reasons to celebrate this New Year with wins of $389,569 each after winning Lotto First Division this Saturday night, NZ Lotteries Chief Executive Todd McLeay said.

The winning tickets were purchased at the Cooper Kettle in Masterton and at Redwood Mini Market and Whitcoulls Bush Inn in Christchurch.

"What a fantastic amount of money to start the New Year with. I think our winners New Year's resolutions will now include 'treat myself in 2007'," says Mr McLeay.

Lotto Strike jackpotted tonight and is worth an estimated $300,000 next weekend.

Lotto Powerball has also jackpotted tonight to an estimated $3 million in next week's draw.

Twenty eight Lotto Triple Dip players will also begin 2007 with a big smile on their face after winning prizes ranging from cars and boats, to a $1 million house, which was won by a ticket purchased at K N J's Superette in Levin (see separate press release for further details).

Tonight's other big winner was Lynley Leith from Invercargill, who spun and won $275,000 live on Lotto's Winning Wheel. Lynn enjoyed a luxury weekend in Wellington, staying at the Duxton Hotel with her husband Phillip, a shopping trip with a stylist for an outfit to wear on the show, and lunch with Lotto presenter Hilary Timmins, leading up to her $275,000 winning spin.

Tonight's Winning Wheel ticket was sold by Napier City Pak N Save. The serial number is 487-18112521-20XX.

All Lotto players are automatically in the draw to win the opportunity to spin Lotto's Winning Wheel, regardless of the type of ticket they buy. Players can check their ticket at any lottery outlet.
