Can New Zealand Lottery Winners Remain Anonymous?

Winning an online lottery may sound like the highlight of an individual’s life. Still, for many lottery winners, their privacy is stripped from them, and living an everyday life becomes challenging.

With money at the root of all evil, there are many reasons why staying anonymous might be the better move. Winning the lottery may mean you become an easy target for scammers, freeloaders, activists, and people trying to take advantage of your newfound wealth.

People would kill to have half of your prize, and sometimes they do! In the tragic case of Craigory Burch Jr, after winning half a million dollars and entering the spotlight, his life changed forever. According to The Washington Post, “One moment, 20-year-old Craigory Burch Jr. was a small-town forklift operator who had hit it big — winning a USD$400,000 lottery jackpot and posing with an oversize check. The next, he was standing face to face with his killers”. A short two months after his lottery win, Burch was sadly shot and killed after he was the victim of a home invasion and demand for money.

Ask yourself this simple question. Would you trade your privacy to play and win the online lotto and see your bank balance rise nine digits? Luckily for lottery winners in New Zealand, you don’t have to sacrifice one for the other because they have the same right to privacy as our Australian Winners!

Our unique business model allows you to enter our Australian Government approved lotteries that let you win from giant overseas lottery draws, such as the Mega Millions. When you enter one of our lotteries, we will purchase a matching ticket in a major overseas lottery, and we will claim any prize that is won from the overseas ticket and pay you the same amount.
