"A Lotto First Division prize of over $1.2 million will make a big difference to some Christmas stockings in the East Cape on Tuesday ," said Mr McLeay.

Strike Four has jackpotted tonight and will be worth $300,000 in next Saturday's draw.

Tonight's other big winner was Bic Morgan from Whangarei who spun Lotto's Winning Wheel and won $100,000.

As part of his prize, Bic and his wife Brenda enjoyed a luxury stay at the Duxton Hotel in Wellington, a shopping trip with a stylist for an outfit to wear on the show, and lunch with Lotto presenter, Kylee King Turner.

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 New World Albany in Albany, North Shore City. The serial number is 842-63060501-20XX

"Anyone who bought their ticket from New World Albany in Albany, North Shore City should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any NZ Lotteries outlet," Mr McLeay says.
