At Alert Level 2, all of the Lotto retail stores are able to re-open, with extra health and safety measures in place to keep customers safe.

The claim period for winning paper tickets that expired during the lockdown has been extended, so lucky players won’t miss out on their prizes.

This applies to Lotto/Powerball, Strike, Keno, Bullseye and Instant Kiwi tickets bought in retail stores that expired between March 26 2020 and May 13 2020. Players have until June 4 2020 to claim these prizes.
