"What a life-changer! If the jackpot is won by a single player on Wednesday, they’ll be taking home the second largest prize ever won in Lotto New Zealand’s history," says Marie Winfield, Head of Communications and Corporate Social Responsibility at Lotto NZ.

"If it’s won on Wednesday, we know so many people will benefit from this prize. Winners always tell us of the amazing things they plan to do for family, friends and charities close to their hearts. It’s going to make such a difference in their community," says Marie.
