Lotto NZ announced today that a special draw will be held next Saturday 10 December to support the people of Kaikoura. All profits from the Lotto, Powerball and Strike draw will go to the Kaikoura and Hurunui earthquake relief fund.

“Kiwis love playing Lotto to help support our communities, and the Kaikoura community is in need of help right now. We know that Lotto players will be glad to have the opportunity to help Kaikoura through their weekly ticket purchase,” said Lotto NZ’s chief executive.

Anyone who bought their ticket from the above store should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any Lotto outlet, online at MyLotto.co.nz or through the Lotto NZ ticket-checker app.
