The Lotto Big Wednesday First Division prize jackpotted tonight, meaning a record-breaking $27 million package is on offer in next week's draw.
The prize would be the biggest scooped by a single player - the highest total, $36 million, was split three years ago by a family syndicate from Masterton.
Big Wednesday First Division was last won in March, when an Auckland family won $11.4m.
The prize package has been jackpotting ever since. Luxury prices in the $27m total include $675,000 cash towards a bach, $50,000 towards luxury travel, a $50,000 Platinum VISA card, an Audi Q7, a Rayglass 2200 Boat and a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4.
