Your privacy & security

Lotto NZ meets the industry’s high standards in keeping your information safe. We use independent security consultants to perform regular tests of MyLotto’s security, so you can enjoy peace of mind when playing online.

How MyLotto protects your information

Updating your spend limits

One of the ways we make sure you have a safe time playing on our site is by having maximum spending limits on MyLotto purchases - up to $150 in any single week and up to $500 per month.

These limits have been approved by Government, so we can't make them any higher. However, if you feel these are too high for you personally, you can choose lower limits by going to ‘My Settings’ in your MyLotto account.
