Who we are
Our vision of ‘building a better WA together’ is the ultimate contribution we want to make to our State.
At Lotterywest, we work to enhance the quality of life and well-being for all West Australians. Our future is based on a proud history of serving the community. Established in 1932 by the Government of the day, we remain a Government entity which continues to operate for its original purpose – to benefit the entire WA community.
Each week we give West Australians a chance to dream through the wide range of lottery games we offer. A State-wide retail network of over 500 small businesses and the Lotterywest Play Online channel sells our products including Saturday, Monday, and Wednesday Lotto, Set for Life, OZ Lotto and Powerball, Soccer Pools, Super66 and Cash 3. Our instant lottery tickets, Scratch’n’Win, are also available through our retail network.
Lotterywest plays a unique role – we are not only responsible for operating the lottery in WA, but for directly distributing a proportion of the funds raised for our beneficiaries in the form of grants to charitable and community organisations. In addition to our direct grants program, our charter is to raise money for the State’s health, sporting and arts sectors.
Last financial year, WA winners shared in $463 million worth of lottery prizes, while $283 million was raised for the WA community.
