How much are tickets purchased through The HAMILTON Lottery?

Winners pay NZD$10 per guest up to a maximum of two (2) tickets. Tickets must be paid for in full, at the Spark Arena box office prior to collection. 

How can I change my lottery entry?

If you need to update your entry name or email address before the drawing begins, you can do so by navigating to "My Orders," locating your lottery entry, and selecting "Options." This menu will be available until just before the lottery begins selecting winners. Once the lottery begins selecting winners on Thursday at 1:00pm (NZST), we are unable to modify entries in any way. This includes changing the name, phone number, email address, number of tickets, or dates entered. We, unfortunately, cannot edit the number of tickets associated with your entry to protect the integrity of the lottery.

Where are seats purchased through the HAMILTON Lottery located?

Seating is assigned directly by the box office and can be located anywhere in the theatre. Seating is not first-come, first-served; the box office will assign your seats after the lottery has completed, and your tickets have been paid for. Please note that in some instances, and on a rare occasion, lottery seats may not be sat together.

I've entered the lottery, but will have accessible seating requirements should I win the chance to purchase these tickets.

We're here to help with your accessibility requests and pass on any relevant information to the box office on your behalf. If you've won the chance to purchase lottery tickets and have completed the checkout process, please contact us by using the "Submit a Ticket" button above no later than one hour after completing checkout to detail how we can assist. 

Can I give my HAMILTON Lottery tickets to someone else?

The contact information of the eligible winner must match a photo ID of the listed purchaser.

How do I know if I won?

We'll send you an email, SMS and push notification if you're a winner! You can also always check to see the status of your entry by navigating to the "My Orders" section of your account, which shows your status in real time.

What happens if I'm not selected as a winner?

We encourage you to enter in the future! You can always set an alert to be reminded when the lottery will begin accepting entries again. Click here to learn more about Alert Me Notifications.

My time to claim winning HAMILTON Lottery tickets expired, what do I do?
