Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

Your query is not clear. Nevertheless, lottery and lotto are both gambling. If one did not use his own money and another person did so on his behalf, then that too is haram.

And Allah knows best

Wassalam
