Playing Lotto even more convenient with new Lotto NZ App

09 December 2016

Playing Lotto just became even more convenient, with Lotto NZ launching a brand new App that gives players the ability to buy and check their favourite tickets on the go.

“Lotto NZ’s original ticket-checker app has been in the market since 2014,” said Ben Coney, Lotto NZ’s Chief Innovation and Technology Officer.

“It’s already been downloaded over half a million times and is used to scan around a million tickets a month – and now it’s getting even better.”

The new Lotto NZ App allows players to login to their MyLotto account, purchase Lotto, Powerball and Strike tickets, check Lotto draw results and watch a virtual draw for Lotto tickets bought through MyLotto.

The updated Lotto NZ App is the latest in a series of digital innovations for Lotto players and follows on from the recent success of the text to play service, which now has more than 5,000 registered users since its launch in July.

“We want our players to be able to play their favourite games where and when it suits them best – it’s all about convenience,” said Mr Coney.

“Players can already buy tickets online at MyLotto or with a quick text through our text service and now we’ve added another way for Kiwis to use their phone to buy their ticket – simply by opening the App.

“The new App includes the features players loved from the original App, including being able to check paper tickets and find their nearest Lotto store, along with great new features that make the App even more convenient.”
