Getting started

There are two ways to join us as a Lotterywest retailer. You can either purchase an existing store that is up for sale, or establish a new store.

Purchase an existing store

Have you found the perfect business? If you’re thinking about purchasing a business that already operates with lottery products, all you'll need to do is successfully complete our application process. It can take up to 30 working days to process an application, which should be taken into consideration when negotiating a settlement date.

Purchase process

 
Establish a new store

Start with a blank canvas! We’re always on the lookout for new opportunities, especially in areas of population growth so that our players have easy access to purchase and play Lotterywest games.

Each year we publish a retail distribution plan which lists the locations we have identified for the establishment of lottery stores for the following 12 months. It also provides information about how we identify locations and seek expressions of interest to establish new lottery stores.

The retail distribution plan is updated throughout the year and locations may be added as information becomes available.
