Media Release 02 February 2013


Lotto Winners Compete With Rugby Sevens Celebrations

There may be a party in Wellington with the rugby sevens in full swing, but three Lotto players around the country will be celebrating too with their $333,333 First Division wins from tonight’s draw.

The winning Lotto tickets were sold at Fred’s Four Square in Huntly, Dawson Superette in Auckland, and Drury Lane Lotto Superette.

Powerball was not struck this evening and has jackpotted to an estimated $5 million, and Strike was not struck either, so jackpotted to $400,000.

Winning Wheel winner Diane from Wellington won a $100,000 luxury car on the live draw at Avalon studios in the capital tonight.

Tonight’s Winning Wheel ticket was bought at Mobil Hillside, Wairau Valley in Auckland. The serial number is 714-67012868-20xx.

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.

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of the above winning stores should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any Lotto outlet or online at MyLotto.co.nz.

In the last 12 months, over 3,000 community groups throughout New Zealand have benefitted from the redistribution of Lotto profits ($183 million in 2011/2012) via the NZ Lottery Grants Board.

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:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

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>>
