Hat Trick for South Auckland Millionaires

Hat Trick for South Auckland Millionaires

Big Wednesday was won on a ticket bought in Manukau last night, winning South Auckland’s latest millionaire a massive $4.8 million luxury prize package, says Chief Executive Todd McLeay.

The win completes a millionaires’ hat trick for South Auckland over the few weeks, with a massive $28.7 million won by a happy Papakura pig hunter and $5.4 million won just two weeks later by a Powerball playing truck driver from Manukau.

Last night’s winner won a package worth $4,813,225, made up of $3 million cash, plus an Audi R8, a Porsche Cayenne, a Visa Platinum card loaded with $250,000, $250,000 towards luxury travel, and $750,000 cash towards a bach.

The lucky winner bought their ticket from Crandall Peters Paper Plus in Manukau

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, and to contact NZ Lotteries in order to determine their next steps.

After being struck last night, Big Wednesday is now getting a big rev up, with two fantastic new cars being added to the luxury prize line up – the Audi A4 and Aston Martin DB9. The two top model cars replace the Audi R8 and Porsche Cayenne previously on offer.

““These great new cars were chosen after considerable customer research. Our players’ stated that they wanted the Aston Martin back- so we have given it to them, just in time to be won for Christmas!” says Mr McLeay.

The Audi A4 is described as a work of art, with sleek curves, beautiful lines and a sporty 2.0 TDI engine. The regal Aston Martin DB9 will stir any luxury car lover’s soul, from its 6.0 litre V12 engine to the hand-stitched leather seats.

“These cars will get any Big Wednesday player’s motor running, and complement our luxury prize package designed to offer players the ultimate lifestyle” says McLeay.
