All of Aotearoa New Zealand is now in the COVID-19 Protection Framework - otherwise known as the traffic light settings. Lotto NZ counters can open at all traffic light settings providing retailers comply with health and safety guidelines set out by the Ministry of Health.

Auckland is now in the Orange traffic light setting. As a result, we are delighted that the live Lotto draw is back on TVNZ and will continue to take place while Auckland is in the Orange traffic light setting.

Anyone who bought their ticket at any of the above stores should check their ticket as soon as possible online at or through the Lotto NZ App.
