Buying Lotto tickets possible soonish, allegedly

In some ways I wonder if it's vapourware. But the NZH claims it's not:

Lotto tickets could soon be available on the internet, the Lotteries Commission is set to announce this week.

But gambling watchdogs are worried that that if the game goes online it is likely to become irresistible to at-risk punters.

Chief executive Todd McLeay told the Herald on Sunday that because many customers expected to use the internet in all aspects of their lives, the move would be "a natural addition to the online Kiwi experience".

I wonder if they'll try barring overseas sales?
