To buy the ticket for Instant lotto you need to open a MyLotto account with a New Zealand bank account and a New Zealand-issued Visa or MasterCard.

If you don’t have a New Zealand-issued Visa or MasterCard, you will need to send copies of any two of the following forms of ID:

  • Passport
  • New Zealand Drivers Licence
  • Firearms Licence
  • New Zealand Birth Certificate
  • New Zealand Marriage Certificate
  • Document evidencing a bank account in your name (e.g. deposit slip)
  • New Zealand-issued International Drivers Licence

You can deposit funds into your MyLotto account either by credit card (Visa, Visa Debit, or MasterCard only) or from your bank account using phone banking or online bill payment.

To top up online with mobile

  • Login to MyLotto
  • Tap the balance icon in the top right of the screen
  • Click the ‘Top Up’ button
  • You will see options to top up with a linked credit card or via mobile banking

Weekly top-up amount: The weekly top-up limit is $150. This is the maximum amount you can deposit into your Player Funds weekly.

Minimum and maximum deposits: The minimum deposit amount is $1 for a single transaction. The maximum deposit amount is $150. Also, note that any deposit you make cannot cause your Player Funds balance to exceed $999.

Your past and present tickets can be viewed in ‘Financial History’ under ‘My funds’ in ‘My Account > Settings’.

‘Financial history’ also shows when and how much has been deposited and withdrawn from your MyLotto account.

If you change the credit card linked to your MyLotto account, you may see a ‘pending transaction’, ‘authorization’, or ‘hold’ on your card statement. This will usually appear as a $1 transaction.

This does not take any funds from your account and is used to check that the card you are using is valid. Depending on your bank, the transaction will be reversed or disappear from your account within 5-7 days.

Setting Up MyLotto Account

MyLotto weekly and monthly spending limits are $150 and $500, respectively. Within this allowance, the spending limit for Instant Play is $50 per week. You can also set your own personal spending limits lower than Lotto NZ’s rules.

If you want to set or change your spending limits within Lotto’s current allowance, log in to MyLotto, click on your account balance, then ‘Settings’, and then ‘Spending limits’.

Your weekly spending limit will reset on the following Sunday, and your monthly spending limit will reset on the first day of the next month.

Spending Limits

The results of each Instant Play ticket will be displayed at the end of the gameplay. You can also view completed ticket outcomes under “My Tickets”.

Winning tickets for Lotto NZ games can claim prizes for 12 months from the draw date they were purchased. Instant Kiwi prizes can be claimed up to 12 months from the closing date of the game.

Any prizes unclaimed after this date are returned to the prize pool for use in future promotions.

All Lotto stores have ‘Lost, Stolen, or Damaged Ticket’ forms that can be filled out and sent to the Lotto’s claims department.

Tickets bought in the app or online cannot be cancelled once the purchase has been confirmed. However, the lotto ensures that you have the chance to check that you’re happy with your purchase before you click ‘Buy Now. ‘ You can cancel tickets purchased in-store as long as they are on the same day, at the same store, and before the draw.

Also, note that you cannot take a printed My Lotto ticket to check or claim a prize at a store. While you can print your MyLotto tickets for your records, these cannot be checked at a retail Lotto store.

But it’s really easy to check your ticket online after the draw—you can even watch an animated draw that checks the numbers on your ticket as the balls are drawn. MyLotto will automatically check all tickets overnight following the draw and let you know via your account if you have won any prizes.

To withdraw funds or your wins from your account, follow these steps below:

  • Login to your account
  • Tap the balance icon in the top right of the screen
  • Go to ‘Settings’ > ‘Withdraw funds’, then follow the instructions
    The funds will be deposited into your nominated bank account; you can only withdraw $10. There may be a delay from when you withdraw to when the funds show in your account. This will depend on your bank and could take up to three days.

Note that  Instant Play Hours are from Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri/Sat/Sun and are 6.30 am to 10:10 pm

To get support while playing with the mobile app, you can call 0800 695 6886 or email customersupport@mylotto.co.nz

Also, the lotto system becomes unavailable each night to enable it to process the day’s transactions, typically from 11 pm to 6.30 am. During these times, the app will be offline. You can check your tickets at any other time. If the app is not available to you outside of these hours.

Also if you’re on an iPhone and getting a message that says, “The Lotto NZ App is only available in New Zealand”, (but you are actually in New Zealand), you might need to change your phone’s location settings for the App.

Apple’s terms and conditions require this setting to ensure that lottery products are geo-restricted to the location of the lottery provider.

  • To edit your location services settings:
  • Navigate to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and toggle this to on.
  • Then select the Lotto NZ App icon and allow location services ‘While Using the App’.

Remember, the latest version of the official Lotto NZ App lets you create and manage a MyLotto account, play new Instant Play games, buy Lotto, Powerball, Strike, and Keno tickets, or set up a Lotto Subscription. You can also check Lotto and Keno results, watch a virtual draw for online tickets, and scan paper tickets to see if you’re a winner. The Lotto NZ APP is compatible with Android 5.0 upwards and iOS 9.0 upwards.
