On this day in 1987 Lotto went on sale for first time in NZ. Outlets opened to long queues, with a first division prize in the inaugural draw of $360,000 (equivalent to $725,000 today). 

Watch above for the throwback clip from the first-ever live draw which occurred on the 1st of August 1987!

Over the years, Lotto has changed the lives of so many Kiwi's and we can't help but not have a little giggle at this video from a lucky Kiwi who won $200k with the winning wheel!
