Customer Commitments

Who we are      

At Lotterywest, we’re committed to a hopeful, healthy, connected and sustainable community life for all Western Australians. We work with four core values underpinning all that we do; to be responsible, empowered, working together and make a difference.

Whether you’re playing our games, a community organisation seeking funding, a retailer seeking assistance, or a member of the public asking a question, we’re committed to providing you with excellent customer service.

Our commitments to you   

Really listening and understanding

We’ll be welcoming, put ourselves in your shoes, and make every effort to understand the issue you are raising with us.

Working to find the best solutions for you

We’ll be flexible and work with you to find solutions.

Doing our best to resolve your query straight away

If we need to investigate further, we’ll let you know what to expect and when you’ll hear from us. 

Doing the right thing by you, and the WA community

All of our profit goes back to the WA community. We’re committed to being ethical above all else, and not doing anything to jeopardise your trust in us.
