New Zealand Big Wednesday Lotto Prepares For $17 Million Draw This Wednesday
For most, Wednesday is an ordinary day but the New Zealand Big Wednesday Lotto is about to spice things up.
This week, the Big Wednesday jackpot prize is sitting at a cool $17 million.Players also get the chance to win some luxury prizes including a Lamborghini Gallardo, an Audi Q7, a Rayglass 2200 boat, a $50,000 visa platinum card and much more.
The Big Wednesday draw differs slightly to the regular Saturday Lotto in that players need to select 6 numbers and to also select a coin toss. That is, either heads or tails.
In order to stand in line to win the jackpot prize, players need to match all six winning numbers plus the correct coin toss on the same line.
To take part in the Big Wednesday action, the cost is $1 per line. If a player is picking their own numbers, there is a minimum requirement of 4 lines, amounting to a cost of $4 per game.
Players also have the choice of playing Dips where the numbers are randomly selected for you at a cost of between $6 to $20.
The last Big Wednesday draw took place on the 6th of August and the numbers drawn included 06, 12, 20, 25, 46, 47 and Tails for the coin toss. There were no jackpot winners but 5 lucky players walked away with $1,127 each for matching 5 numbers.
