In downtown Auckland at 8:30pm last night I tried to purchase a couple of instant scratch tickets from one of the many c-stores with big lottery branding on the street front. I thought the sales guy was joking when he said that it was after 7pm. It turns out that they can’t sell any lottery products after 7pm. These twenty-four hour a day businesses can’t sell a key traffic driving product for key trading hours they are open. Odd.
No lottery ticket sales after 7PM in NZ
