Establish a new outlet

Our New Outlet Location assessment takes 60 business days to complete. The Assessment takes into consideration several factors regarding the appropriateness of a location such as: business type suitability, proximity to and impact on existing retailers, player access, incremental and overall sales, sufficient space for Lotterywest Shopfit, internal counter positioning, power and data connectivity and external signage opportunities.

The New Outlet application process includes the following steps:

  1. Identify a suitable Location – this must be a specific address.
  2. Submit a Location Assessment Request – email Retail.Operations@lotterywest.wa.gov.au for a link to the form. Your application will need to include information on your business type, images of the location and shopfit plans showing the proposed counter position (this assessment takes up to 10 business days).
  3. If Approved, submit a Comprehensive Location Assessment – this will be emailed to you with the approval and will include your Business Plan, Financial Forecasts, and evidence of Lease (this assessment takes up to 60 business days).
