20 Great Vehicles To Be Won For Christmas With Lotto

Kiwi motorists are in for a very special Christmas with 10 MINI Cooper S cars and 10 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado RV 4-wheel drive vehicles being given away on 27 December, New Zealand Lotteries Commission (NZLC) Chief Executive Trevor Hall announced today.

This is a special Christmas draw building on successful special draws for other cars held throughout the year. Holdens and Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolets have been given away previously.

“Every purchaser of a Lotto Triple Dip ticket between now and 27 December will be in to win one of these top of the range models,” he said.

“These draws are tremendous for sales,” Trevor Hall continued. “Customers love them, particularly when Powerball is jackpotting at the same time. This snowballing effect means more profits going back to the community via the Lottery Grants Board.”

With this special draw Lotto will be giving terrific Christmas presents to different types of motoring enthusiasts - the MINI for those whizzing around town a lot and the Land Cruiser for the more outdoors/leisure-minded type.

“It’s great being able to give away prizes like this as well as heaps of cash,” Trevor Hall said. “It gives Kiwis who might never otherwise have a chance to own or drive a motoring legend the opportunity of a lifetime.”
