NZ Lotto Pays Out ‘Confusing’ $1 Million Win

The New Zealand Lotteries Commission has paid out what its winner calls a ‘confusing’ prize worth $1 million. According to the NZ Lotto website, a man from Manukau was under the impression that he had won a chance to win the $1 Million Wheel when his ticket showed the winning numbers. Fortunately for him, he was just a little confused, and actually won the entire $1 million prize!

On the weekend lottery draw during the week of January 7th, he picked his numbers as he normally would. After matching six numbers, he took his ticket to a lottery retailer, who told him that he had won $1 million. Possibly out of disbelief, possibly out of sheer excitement, the man misheard the clerk; he was under the impression that he would be going on to spin the $1 Million Winning Wheel on live television.

He called the NZ Lotteries Commission to confirm his prize, and did not believe the representative who told him that he had, indeed won the cash prize for $1 million. It wasn’t until the funds had been transferred to his account that he finally decided to go out and celebrate his win!
