  1. The government don’t want us to be rich and if you are a lucky division one winner you only get a measly 1m if your lucky def not enough to retire with. Payouts are low ticket cost high and chances are so slim you never really win it’s a dream the only winners are the Freemason govt of wa and the dodgy politicians

  2. What an absolute waste of time spent 2 hours trying to check my tickets.
    How long will it be before these morons realise all the complaints and bad reviews actually mean we are all pissed off with lottery west?
    Myself and everyone I know that do online lottery go to ozlotteries to purchase, and you’d think that lotterywest would at least try to emulate what great success their site is.
    I’ll never go back to the lottery west again, they have lost me for sure now.
    I’m gobsmacked as to why they have never tried to upgrade their servers to accommodate heavy traffic.

  3. I play on ozlotteries site (jumbo interactive) and they’re listed on the ASX.
    Its extra 5c a game but worth it as I can play many more different variations to most draws.
    I log in, then purchase my usual saved numbers might ad a sticky too then pay, all done in literally 15 seconds,
    I would still be trying to either, log in, enter that stupid wallet putting I. Repetitive card details to add to my account, and then waiting for the spinning ring till I get to where I want and their process takes a good 6 to 10 minutes to complete, let alone if their server is busy and you can’t get anywhere, a very slow dreadful user UNfriendly site, so if they can’t be bothered upgrading their servers then I won’t be bothered to spend my dollars on their stupid site. No wonder they were having financial troubles, people want to accomplish their shopping as succinctly as possible so they’ll do it elsewhere at lottorywests expense.

  4. Before you buy a ticket please bear the following in mind. A few years ago, when the Liberal Party was in power, LotteryWest gave $1 million to True North Church, a church which supports the Libs. So if you are an atheist like me, do you really want to be donating your dollars to religious outfits like this?

  5. I think there is something funny about Lotterywest. CASH 3 draw

    Draw Number 7204 was 887 30th Jul 2018- draw no. 7205 was 887 31st July 2018- and draw 7228 was 887 23rd Aug 2018. The odds are 1000 to one of winning. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE. NOT RIGHT!
    I put the same numbers on for years and they have NEVER come up yet. That is IMPOSSIBLE.
    Something funny is happening that is why the SAME numbers come up continuously.
    When the draw was shown on TV everyone could watch the draw. NOW it’s not shown

  6. I have been following the CASH 3. LotteryWest says the chance of winning is 1 in 1000.
    How is it possible for the SAME THREE NUMBERS 877 to come out TWO days in a row.
    How is it possible for the number 312 to come out TWICE in 4 days in the EXACT order.
    This week 5 days out of seven the number 8 is in EVERY number.
    Something is wrong? DEFINITELY. I am NOT playing CASH3 again. SORRY.

  7. Once upon a time winning first prize in Saturday lotto would allow you to buy one or two houses, boat, caravan, new car, holidays, give money to family and still have money left over to invest. Now in 2018 first prize gets you half a house if your so lucky to win first prize on your own. I have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to win first prize over 20 years and have come to realise if I saved that money in an investment account I would have over a million dollars today. Forget scratch tickets, biggest rip off ever and 100% your never going to win first prize even if you spend millions on tickets. Australian government stopped on-line casinos from offering their services to Australians because they claim it is addictive and hurting low income earners but they don’t care about how many seniors and people who cannot leave their homes had hours of enjoyment playing online and spending a fraction of what they do on scratch tickets that are a never ending losing spiral. In WA we are stuck with our local lotteries & one land based casino both of which have a monopoly on gambling with zero competition. Anyone who thinks scratch tickets, lotto and the land based casino are not just as addictive as online casinos is joking, very unfair to restrict people from spending their money the way they want and force them to spend it in businesses in their local state, can’t even play lotto online with eastern states companies if residing in WA. Best advice, stop all forms of gambling in WA and start saving, it’s never too late and your guaranteed a win.

  8. I have been a member for a few years, the website is terrible to use, you can not even see the last draw date on your tickets so you have to go back and forth from your ticket view to the games area to see if your ticket is still valid, they take days to reply to you, hard to find your own details on the site, much prefer Lottoland as the site is very user friendly however the WA Gov is trying to ban it, what happened to the right for people to buy what they want and not what the Western Australia want.

  9. I tried to create an account. First, they want my d/l number, then they want my medicare number, then they want my reference number. Doesn’t accept. Then I get an arrogant little Tart on the phone telling me it’s you because you are a fool. She’s not interested in helping me, just wants to try and make me look stupid. I hate these people so much!

  10. Poor odds.
    Piss poor returns.
    We don’t live in the 80’s anymore.
    So why are the payouts the same.
    Greed and profit for Lotterywest.
    We the players demand better payouts and please don’t forget who pays your wagers. We the players do pay for your wagers.

  11. Excellently written writeup, doubts all bloggers offered the same content material because you, the internet is actually a greater location. Please maintain it up!

Lotterywest.wa.gov.au Exposed — Imagine the Frustration of Southern Australians!

Lotterywest Review

If you are living in Western Australia, are at least 16 years old and are only interested in playing Australian lotteries then check out Lotterywest. These guys look pretty good with all the information that an online lottery player wants to know. Lotterywest combines top of the line security standards and an impeccable reputation with the convenience of buying tickets online. Did you miss the bit about living in Western Australia? If you don’t, then you should only read my review to make me feel better about conducting the following research.

So What Does Lotterywest Look Like

I was impressed from the moment I clicked on Lotterywest. It’s got all the drop menus and information that people would expect to have provided by an online lottery service provider though do not find all the time. It’s relatively easy to find information with a summary of what you need to be (Western Australian) at the beginning of their registration page.

Getting Bogged Down at Lotterywest

Of course, I  didn’t go there first and instead got bogged down reading the terms and conditions page (very thorough) and only found the registration instructions after my second coffee. It is through including how to register offline.

One of the things that are clear on this site is, Lotterywest targets both retail sales and online sales with a tremendous amount of information that is only applicable for those that want to walk in a store and purchase lottery tickets.

Eight Games that Run Through the Week at Lotterywest

Assuming that you are still reading this because you are a Western Australian and not simply because you like my style, here is some useful information for you. Lotterywest sells tickets for eight distinct lotteries (including Oz Lotto and Oz Powerball) and Soccer Pools. Most lotteries are held on Saturdays. The exceptions are Cash 3 organized on a daily basis and OZ Lotto on Tuesday afternoons which usually has the top payouts.

Money at Lotterywest

I always want to look at the percentages of how the ticket cost is used. Lotterywest is pretty good with the commission charged below 10%, with 60% out of each dollar used to fuel the prize pool and 33% given to charity.

Customer Support (occasionally) at Your Service

Lotterywest offers telephone support for general inquiries (8:30 am – 5 pm) and play online, and customers support 6:00 am – 6 pm, though the times do change for weekends and holidays. There is a snail mail address way, way down on the ‘Contact Us’ Page, after you read about their grant contact, human resource contacts and frankly, I think most of this information should be on a corporate page and not ‘Contact Us.’

Lotterywest Complaints

If there is one online lottery vendor that has its back covered, then this has to be Lotterywest because they go beyond the call of duty when it comes to protecting their reputation. They have individual sections dedicated to showcasing their commitment to keeping the industry fair and transparent and encourage members to play responsibly. They don’t give you a choice anyway since the maximum wagering limit is set at $200 in any seven consecutive day period.

Lottterywest run a legitimate business, and this does attract many scam artists who use their name to run deceitful e-mail campaigns, but this is in no way something to impute the lottery. You can read about these e-mail scams at Lotterywest complaints.

Would you mind rating LotteryWest.wa.gov.au?

The Bottom Line at Lotterywest

This is an official, professionally run site which offers access to Australian lotteries online – but you must live in Western Australia to play here. They don’t mark up online fees from the cost of purchasing from a retailer and offer a good selection of games.

Pros:

Clean Site

Good Selection of Lotteries

No Mark Up on Tickets for Playing Online

Cons:

You MUST Live in Western Australia

No 24/7 Customer Service or Live Chat

You MUST be able to PROVE you live in Western Australia

Lotterywest gets a thumbs up though it is thumbs down for me as I don’t live in Western Australia! They don’t even accept players beyond that state’s borders. Imagine the frustration of Southern Australians!
