Play Online is safe and secure, however internet scams do exist. If you receive an email which sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Unauthorised overseas operators send mail and emails to people throughout the world claiming to be Lotterywest. These scams often claim the recipient has won a large prize and should send further details or money (sometimes called a handling fee) for the prize to be paid. Lotterywest does not charge any handling fees for prize payouts.
We will never ask you for your Play Online password via email. If you wish to check if a message you have received is from Lotterywest please email or call us.
