Lotto Half Million Winners for Paraparaumu and New Plymouth


Two lucky players who bought tickets in Paraparaumu and New Plymouth will be marking the start of spring with some extra cash in their bank accounts, after winning $591,351 with their share of Lotto First Division tonight, says NZ Lotteries Chief Executive Todd McLeay.

The two tickets were sold at Kapiti Pak N Save Lotto Kiosk in Paraparaumu and Merrilands Lotto & Post in New Plymouth.

Lotto Powerball has jackpotted again this week, and will be worth an estimated $16 million in next Saturday's draw.

A Strike Four prize worth $189,704 was also won tonight, by a player who purchased their ticket at Parklands Lotto in Mt Eden, Auckland.

Anne Humphreys was tonight's other big winner after spinning and winning a $100,000 home upgrade package live on Lotto's Winning Wheel on behalf of her Waimate neighbourhood syndicate.

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.

Tonight's Winning Wheel ticket was sold by Mac's Photo and Lotto in Tawa, Wellington with the serial number 111-44400175-20xx.

"Anyone who bought a ticket at any of our winning retailers should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it as soon as possible," Mr McLeay said.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
