A lot happens when you play

A lot happens when you play Lotterywest games. It’s actually pretty amazing how much of an impact you have every time you grab a Lotto or Scratch’n’Win ticket in-store, online or through our app.

It’s thanks to West Australians playing our games that we’re able to support the things that make WA a great place to live.

Did you know that in financial year 2016-17, a huge $705 million was given to the local community in prizes and grants? Don’t worry you’re not reading that wrong! This phenomenal amount was made up of WA players sharing $440 million in prizes and $265 million being raised for the community. What this means is that you have contributed to:

  • improving health & wellbeing, such as the construction of WA’s first-ever outdoor parkour park
  • conserving our environment & cultural heritage
  • bringing families and communities together through a range of events, festivals like Fringe World and more
  • supporting volunteer & emergency services organisations

Remember this every time you get your tickets in-store or online. The whole of WA is saying thank you for playing.

We’re going to be sharing more stories of grants we’ve supported thanks to you and other West Aussies soon, so stay tuned. 

What does my money support in WA?

Every year you help Lotterywest make almost 900 grants totalling over $115 million dollars. Which means that you're helping community organisations provide services, support and inspiration to people all over Western Australia. And the best part? All the money that you help give to our community comes from having fun playing the games! So why not pick up a ticket today and keep WA winning?
