$100,000 Winner Shops In Christchurch

April 15, 2002

A Christchurch shopper is $100,000 richer after last night winning the first new weekly Kachingo! draw. The winner is yet to come forward.

The shopper visited Woolworths Ferrymead in the city last Monday (April 8) on the first day Kachingo! brought in its new weekly draw scheme.

Whoever it is has a cat and a dog, likes crumpets and Twinings Earl Grey tea and enjoys Olivani spread and Marmite on toast!

Kachingo! managing director Mary Vance says the person spent $74.28 and has the winning game line numbers 03, 04, 09, 13, 16, 28 and the power number 01 all on one line. The draw date on the ticket is midnight Sunday April 14.

Ms Vance says there were 32 second prize winners who each receive $1,000, as well as 701 third prize and 6,054 fourth prize winners.

With Kachingo! there are weekly draws for a $100,000 big cash prize with at least 30 second prizes of $1,000, 700 third prizes of $20 and thousands of fourth prizes of $5.

This is our first winner under the new format so we're really looking forward to finding the winner - check your tickets everyone,: Ms Vance says.

Tickets can be checked at any Kachingo! partner store, online at or on Teletext.

Woolworths spokesperson Des Flynn says the company is proud to have issued the first $100,000 weekly prize winning ticket.

The Ferrymead store has issued two previous Kachingo!-winning tickets - one for $10,000 in March and a second for $1,000 in April.

Mr Flynn says Woolworths shoppers have now been issued with Kachingo! tickets worth more than $2.6 million since the company joined the rewards scheme in October last year.
