Earlier tonight there was frustration for some punters as Lotto’s website and mobile phone app were temporarily down ahead of the draw.

Customers took to the MyLotto Facebook page to voice their frustration, saying they couldn’t buy a ticket online.

One customer said they were an hour away from the nearest store.

“Lotto - please tell me if your site is going to be fixed before 7.30pm tonight. Otherwise, I need to get in the car and start driving.”

Another said, “Oh no! I’ve been playing my favourites for years - and I can’t get on!!! If this is the night - I will be hugely disappointed. Come on Lotto - sort it OUT.”

A Lotto spokesperson said they experienced an issue with MyLotto - and were sorry for the inconvenience.

The software issue was resolved and the site up and running just after 7pm.

On Wednesday, one lucky Karaka player walked away with $1m after winning Lotto’s First Division. The winning ticket was sold at Karaka Convenience in Karaka.
