1st Day Of Xmas... $2M Fielding Big Wednesday Win

On The First Day Of Christmas Big Wednesday Gave To Feilding, $2 million Plus Luxury Prizes

It's the first day of Christmas and a Big Wednesday player in Feilding has just been given a gift of $4,247,140 after winning Big Wednesday First Division, says NZ Lotteries Chief Executive Todd McLeay.

The winning ticket was sold at Feilding Video Centre in Feilding and has won $2 million in cash, an Aston Martin V8 Vantage, an Audi Q7, a $250,000 AMEX Platinum card, $250,000 worth of luxury travel, a Rayglass legend 2500 boat, a $500,000 luxury holiday home and a $750,000 luxury apartment.

"The summer holidays have just begun and with this $4.2 million prize package, our Big Wednesday winner will be able to enjoy the ultimate summer lifestyle," says Mr McLeay.

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

"They should then contact NZ Lotteries' Wellington office and we can provide advice about the next steps to take," he says.

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 did not match the coin toss, the ticket holder has won $25,000.

The winning serial number is 849-02155525-13XX.

"Anyone who bought their ticket from Greymouth New World in Greymouth should check it immediately," says Mr McLeay.

There were a total of 60,807 winners from tonight's draw.
