Getting started

There are two ways to join us as a Lotterywest retailer. You can either purchase an existing store that is up for sale, or establish a new store.

Here’s a short video that takes you through the steps to become a Lotterywest retailer.


Purchase an existing store

Have you found the perfect business? If you’re thinking about purchasing a business that already operates with lottery products, all you'll need to do is successfully complete our application process. It can take up to 30 working days to process an application, which should be taken into consideration when negotiating a settlement date.

Establish a new store

We're not assessing new locations for Lotterywest stores as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

We’ll keep this page updated with new information as it becomes available, so please check in with us again soon.

In the meantime, please contact us on 133 777 or email hello@lotterywest.wa.gov.au if you have any questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any other sources of information I can refer to, such as industry bodies?

There are a number of organisations that can give you help and advice, before and during your time as a retailer. Examples are:

Is the Agreement a franchise?

All Lotterywest retailers operate under a formal Agreement that is specific to the owner, location and business type. Lotterywest retailers do not operate under a franchise. For more information, click here.

Why are we undertaking the Retail Distribution Plan review?

We’re currently reviewing our Retail Distribution Plan to ensure we’re choosing the best locations for new Lotterywest stores.

While this review takes place, the State Government has endorsed an Interim Retail Approval Process for Lotterywest.

The interim process considers factors such as the position of proposed outlets and impacts on existing outlets, player access, revenue and new retail areas.

If you have any questions, or want to find out more about the availability of certain locations, please contact us on 133 777 and ask to speak with a member of our Retail Network Planning Team.
