Yahoo! New Zealand August 9, 2012, 10:53 am

With no lucky winners this week, the Lotto Big Wednesday draw has become substantially bigger.

It's now almost the largest jackpot in history with a whopping $16 million to be won.

A Masterton resident won a record $36 million in 2009, Fairfax Media reports, making this prize the second-largest in history.

A $13 million prize was won in 2006, and an Auckland ticket holder won $10 million earlier this year.
