Lotto Shops Turn Off Lights In Recognition Of Impending Power Shortage

The New Zealand Lotteries Commission has instructed its 620 Lotto outlets to turn off their under counter lights in support of the Government’s call to action to reduce power usage.

As of Wednesday 7 May in recognition of the impending power crisis all Lotto outlets switched off their under counter display lights.

We have one of the largest and most extensive retail networks in the country and we would like to thank our retailers for their assistance in a bid to save power.
