Four Bay lucky punters will soon be driving around in flash new wheels after winning BMWs in the Lotto Triple Dip Christmas Promotion draw.

The three players from Mount Maunganui and one from Tauranga each won a luxury new $65,500 BMW X1 sDrive 18d.

The other BMW winners were from Dannevirke, Manukau, Waimate, Blenheim and the West Coast.

Lotto's Triple Dip Christmas promotion with 200 extra prizes was drawn on Saturday night.

The Bay's winning streak has also continued with three Tauranga players, two from Waihi Beach, one from Te Puke, and Bay of Plenty region, each winning $10,000 in the same promotion draw.

Plus a punter, who bought their Lotto ticket from Greerton Lotto store, is $12,407 richer after winning a second Division prize in Saturday draw.

Twenty-two other Lotto players have also won second division prizes, including a player who bought their ticket from Rotorua's Paper Plus Central.

Powerball was not struck and jackpots to the next draw.

Full results are available on

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of these winning stores should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it at any Lotto outlet, online at or through Lotto NZ's ticket-checker smartphone app.
