Did you know that every time you play one of Lotto NZ’s games, you’re a Kiwi helping other Kiwis — like Benjiro, a six-year old boy with cerebral palsy.

Benjiro is just one of the 450 young people that take part in StarJam’s 44 workshops held around the country each week. These workshops provide young Kiwis living with a disability the opportunity to pursue their love of music while feeling truly included.

Anyone who bought their ticket from any of the above winning stores should write their name on the back of the ticket and check it immediately at any Lotto outlet, online at or through the Lotto NZ App.
