In addition, Big Wednesday Second Division has also jackpotted and next week's prize will be worth more than $320,000.
A player who bought their Big Wednesday ticket at Collingwood Foodcentre in Kaikiwi, Invercargill has won a Mercedes Benz in tonight's Big Wednesday second chance draw.
The winning serial number is 415-62798092-13xx.
Every ticket bought for tonight's draw was entered in the second chance draw. The prize won was determined by the H or T selection on the first line of the ticket. As the ticket selection correctly matched Heads in the coin toss in the draw, they won a Mercedes Benz.
"Anyone who bought their Big Wednesday ticket from Collingwood Foodcentre in Waikiwi, Invercargill should check it immediately," Mr McLeay says.
There were a total of 83,231 winners from tonight's draw.
