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.
