Purchasing a business with an existing Lotterywest Outlet

You may be purchasing an existing business which is already part of our Lotterywest retailer network and offers our products and services.  Lotterywest will need to approve the purchaser to be appointed as a Lotterywest retailer for that business.  The purchaser must submit a completed application with supporting documentation for assessment.

Steps in purchasing an existing outlet

Step 1: Identify an outlet and begin discussions with the owner.

Step 2: Investigate the business and secure a contract of sale.

Step 3: Secure a lease offer and attend a pre-meeting with Lotterywest.

Step 4: Complete an online application form with supporting documents.

Step 5: Successfully pass an interview and complete MALO training.

What is the application process to purchase an existing lottery outlet*?

The purchaser will need to contact Lotterywest to arrange a pre-meeting prior to submitting an online application form.

The purchaser needs to submit a complete application that includes the application form, business plan (including financial plan), Contract of Sale and evidence of an offer to lease for at least 12 months. If your application and business plan are approved, you will progress to the interview stage.

Once we have received and assessed an application that meets our requirements, the prospective retailer will be invited to discuss their business plan and strategies for the business with our panel. If you pass our interview, you will be invited to attend our MALO Training.

MALO Training
All owners and managers must complete our Managing a Lottery Outlet consisting of a 4-day competency-based training program. This training is held once a month at our Lotterywest office, so please take this into consideration when negotiating a settlement date.

Sign agreement & submit a bank guarantee
You will be advised of the bank guarantee value at this point in the process.

Settlement must occur on business days (Tuesday to Friday – excluding public holidays).

If the current store has the old shopfit, you will need to complete the new shopfit within 8-weeks of settlement.


If the purchase of a business with a Lotterywest outlet involves a change of location, please speak with our Retail Support team regarding our Relocation policy and guidelines.
