Statutory function

Lotto NZ is a Crown Entity with a Government-appointed Board of Directors. 

Our organisation was established in 1987 and operates under the Gambling Act 2003.

Our function is to operate lottery games in New Zealand in order to raise money to benefit the community.  Our profits (around 20 cents in every dollar spent on lottery products) are transferred to the NZ Lottery Grants Board.

Our primary goal is to continue to generate improved earnings so that we are able to maximise the contribution we make to the Lottery Grants Board.  At the same time we endeavour to minimise the incidence of any problem gambling and under-age gambling associated with our products.

Lotto NZ is subject to stringent government reporting and monitoring requirements.  Each year we publish a statement of intent outlining our future plans and document our performance through the publication of a half year and annual report.

Lotto NZ is not the organisation which makes lottery grants, that process is managed by the NZ Lottery Grants Board (
