No. In the ‘Terms and conditions’ you accept when you register for your Lotterywest membership, you agree to not share your account details, password and/or PIN with anyone.

If I register as a Lotterywest member will I be added to a promotions email list?

When you register for a Lotterywest membership you can choose whether you want to receive information about jackpots, Superdraws and promotions by leaving the appropriate box ticked. If you leave this box ticked you will occasionally receive emails from Lotterywest about these events. If you clear this box you will only receive emails related to your  account activity.

Yes, you must be 16 years or older to play (and be able to prove your age at registration). 

Can I register and play if I don’t live in Western Australia?

You must have a Western Australian residential address to register for the Lotterywest membership. PO Boxes are not accepted as a residential address. If you are temporarily located outside of Western Australia you need to check if the laws in that region allow you to purchase lottery tickets online.

Why do I have to complete an identity check?

By law we are required to verify the identity of players registering for a Lotterywest membership. Proof of identity is required to ensure all players meet these criteria.

What is identity verification?

Identity verification is the process of checking a player’s personal details against a set of data sources such as the White Pages, WA Electoral Roll and WA Driver's licence databases. This is done to ensure players identities and that the age and address requirements of becoming a registered player are met.

This process is carried out by a Third Party Identity Verification Service Provider. Registering and verifying your identity online is completely secure.

Are my details shared with anyone else?

The details you provide to us are shared with our secure Third Party Identity Verification Service Provider for the purpose of verifying your identity. The personal details in your account will be kept secure and used to contact you about your account if it is necessary. You will not be sent promotional emails unless you opt to receive them.

Can I receive prizes paid by cheque?

Lotterywest similar to many other Government organisations such as Medicare and the ATO has replaced cheque payments with EFT.  For Lotterywest members, that means you’ll need to provide us with your bank account details. To arrange this, all you need to do is complete this change of financial details form. Please rest assured your details will be kept confidential and secure. Once we receive your information we will update your account as soon as possible.
