The aim of the New Zealand lotteries is to match the numbers of one’s play slip with the winning numbers of the lotto draw. Numbers can be selected manually, in which players may choose which numbers they want to play, though here they will have to play at least four lines. They may also choose to access the ‘Dips’ function, where a random number generator will throw out numbers and select these on behalf of the player.

To play regular lotto, players will need to choose six main lotto numbers and one bonus number from between numbers one and forty. If they wish to add the Powerball, then they have to choose an additional Powerball number from numbers one to ten.

In order to stand a chance of winning, at least three lotto numbers plus the bonus number have to match. If all six numbers match, a jackpot will be hit.
