Big Wednesday Jackpots – A $500,000 Holiday Home Added To Prize Offer Next Wednesday
The new lottery game, Big Wednesday, has jackpotted, with a $500,000 holiday home being added to the prizes on offer next week, NZ Lotteries Chief Executive Trevor Hall said tonight.
“Because Big Wednesday Division One has jackpotted, a common occurrence with games of this type, we will be able to offer players an even bigger overall prize next week.
At the next draw, on 16 November, Big Wednesday players will be in to win:
- $2 million;
- Porsche 911 Carrera;
- Range Rover Vogue V8;
- $50,000 worth of luxury travel every year for five years;
- $250,000 American Express Platinum card;
- Mustang luxury launch; and
- $500,000 holiday home.
“We’ve got a great surprise for players this week. All the same ‘goodies’ that were on offer last week are still there, but added to that is a $500,000 holiday home which the winner buy or build wherever they want.
Our very first First Division Big Wednesday winner will never have to look at a price tag again. They’ll be able to travel the globe using their luxury travel prize. They’ll also have $2 million in the bank and a Porsche and Range Rover in the garage, not to mention a luxury launch in the boat harbour and a holiday home to enjoy.
“Now that’s an ultimate lifestyle, and we can’t wait to have our first big winner,” says Mr Hall.
Although the big prize was not won tonight, there were a total of 43,217 winners from the draw.
The South Island’s run of luck continued tonight, with a ticket sold at Midway Dairy and Takeaway in Blenheim winning Big Wednesday’s serial number draw, open to all tickets bought for tonight’s draw. The ticket holder has won prize a Mercedes-Benz C240 Classic.
The winning serial number is 079-58760963-13XX.
“Anyone who bought their ticket from this store should check it immediately," Mr Hall says.
