Lotto NZ said shortly after 10am while most MyLotto customers could check their online tickets using the virtual draw as per usual, around 10 percent wouldn’t be able to see their ticket on MyLotto and the ticket won’t be processed until later in the day.  

“This means they won’t be able to check their ticket electronically using the virtual draw until later on Sunday afternoon,” Lotto NZ said in a statement. 

“This is because Lotto NZ’s overnight processing is taking longer than expected due to the unprecedented demand for tickets in last night’s draw.” 

Customers unable to use the virtual draw were told to check their tickets manually against the draw results, which have been published here

However, in an update just after 11am, Lotto said the issue had been resolved.

“All processing of MyLotto tickets from last night’s draw has been completed. All MyLotto customers are now able to check their tickets using the online virtual draw,” Lotto said in a statement.

Head of Corporate Communications Lucy Fullarton apologised to customers affected by the delay. 

“We understand many people will be logging on to MyLotto this morning to find out if they are one of the seven winners of $7.1 million from last night,” she said in a statement. 

“Most of our customers will be able to do this as per usual, but if you are one of the people whose tickets show as unprocessed, we do apologise that we are drawing out the anticipation a little longer. 

“Thank you in advance for your patience.” 

Retail customers were unaffected by the brief hiccup and were able to check their tickets as usual. 

Lotto will be revealing what stores the winning tickets were sold at in the next few hours.
