Lotterywest contributes record-breaking return to WA community

For the second consecutive year, Lotterywest has contributed a record-breaking return to the Western Australian community, with 2021-22 producing a return of $1.03 billion in lottery prizes and grants.

The year saw a record number of jackpots and prizes with two significant wins contributing to the huge windfall for the State. In late 2021, a group of 55 women from a northern suburbs' gym won the $80 million Powerball prize, and in February a syndicate from Kalgoorlie took home a $63 million share of the $120 million Powerball jackpot Division One prize pool.

The significant community return also includes $323 million that has gone to support the WA community through statutory and direct grants - the highest ever achieved - exceeding last year's record.
