New Zealand is so behind the times. NZ Lotto should make things easier for those purchasing a ticket through Lotto shops, instead of looking for a winner for a month or so.
When buying a Lotto ticket in Australia you can do so with a player's card, with your name and a membership number. This is scanned every time you buy a Lotto ticket so if you lose it or your ticket gets stolen, no one else can claim your winnings.
MyLotto is only good for those buying tickets online, it doesn't help anyone who loses a ticket bought from a Lotto store or has it stolen.
Time for change NZ Lotto.
