The Lotto New Zealand is back again with a major announcement. As always, Lotto New Zealand does not have a single-player winning the prize. As the tradition goes, the Lotto New Zealand game has several players that have won the prize money playing the game.
According to the Lotto New Zealand officials, all players are taking a piece of the same prize money won from the Lotto NZ game. It is the second division prize money for the Lotto New Zealand game that the players have successfully won.
Most of the time, when Lotto New Zealand announces several winners of the same prize, it is a syndicate that manages to win the prize. However, this time, it is not a syndicate that has won the second division prize.
All 18 winners played individually but they were thinking of the same numbers when they chose the numbers for the draw. It is unique as well as shocking news for the entire lottery industry.
These 18 winners are now among the luckiest in New Zealand that they have won such large prize money. Unfortunately, their lucks worked at the same time and they ended up winning the same prize money. Therefore, they had to split the prize money and take equal shares out of the total prize money.
The Lotto NZ officials have revealed that the total prize money for the draw held on October 6, 2021, was $372,996. Therefore, each player will be taking home $20,722 from the particular game.
With the prize money, the players will be able to do so many things. Most importantly, as the Christmas and Holiday period is nearing, the prize money is going to go a long way for these players.
The players will be able to buy gifts for their loved ones and do so much, and still, be left with some money from the game. This is a huge victory for the Lotto NZ game as well, as it is constantly living up to its reputation as a people’s game.
According to information from the officials, a total of 8 tickets were purchased by the players residing in different areas of Auckland. The rest of the winners are from Northland, Huntly, Waikato, Invercargill, Geraldine, Nelson, Lower Hutt, Manawatu-Whanganui, Palmerston North, and Te Kuiti.
The names of the stores where the players purchased their tickets include MyLotto, Pak N Save Petone, and Four Square Otatara. More stores include Countdown Nelson, Fresh Choice Geraldine, New World Melody’s, and Paper Plus Te Kuiti.
The Lotto NZ will be back with more news and announcements of players winning huge prizes next week.
