Money-go-round

Our grant funds come from the sales of our lottery games achieved through the hard work of over 500 retailers throughout the State.

For every dollar they make, Lotterywest retailers add on commission and return 60 cents back to players as prizes. About one third of the dollar is returned to the public, either as grants directly managed by us or as statutory grant allocations, through the State Government, to health, arts and sport.  The remaining cents are for Lotterywest operating costs including the administration of grants.
