The Lott is the mark of trust that unites Australia's Official Lotteries by Tatts (Tattersall's Sweeps Pty Ltd), Tatts NT (Tatts NT Lotteries Pty Ltd), NSW Lotteries (NSW Lotteries Corporation Pty Ltd), Golden Casket (Golden Casket Lottery Corporation Limited) and SA Lotteries (Tatts Lotteries SA Pty Ltd) under one banner.
Every time you play your favourite games through Australia's Official Lotteries, you are helping to play an important role in supporting and inspiring our Australian communities.
Mowing the lawn, having a coffee, or getting something out of the fridge – ordinary moments have quickly turned into winning moments for over 74 million winners across the last financial year playing one of the lottery games at the Lott.
Can you imagine winning a share of $2.7 billion# in prize money? Our winners tell us their windfall grants them the freedom to live the life they’ve always dreamed of. From paying off the mortgage, going on first class holidays, and even the simple pleasures of buying new household appliances, with the Lott the possibilities are endless!
Here at the Lott we’ve changed many lives, so many that it’s the equivalent to 2.3 winners per second! We have multiple winners every second of every day and these winners take home prizes that range from $5 to $50 million and beyond!
Last financial year, Australia’s Official Lotteries contributed over $1.1 billion* to help support community initiatives such as hospitals, schools and sporting groups. It’s fair to say that when Australia dreams we all win!
“That’s unbelievable! I’m a bit stunned. I don’t know what to say. I’m staggered. I can’t get my head around it. It’s a bit surreal really. To be honest, I’ve never thought about what I would do if I won $60 million.” – Powerball draw 1173 on Thursday 8 November 2018
“I was just at work this morning and I thought I would check my ticket. So I just scanned it on the app and I couldn’t believe it. I’ve been playing Lotto for about 20 years using some special numbers – my family’s birthdates.” – Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3811 on Wednesday 24 October 2018
“We’ve had a group chat going all morning about how we are each going to spend our share of the win. I know one family member is going to buy a new washing machine and another is going to get a water tank.” – Oz Lotto draw 1277 on Tuesday 7 August 2018
The global authority on lotteries, the World Lottery Association (WLA) is a member-based organisation committed to supporting its members to achieve the highest standards of corporate responsibility and responsible gambling principles. At the Lott, Australia’s official lotteries, we have adopted these principles and achieved the WLA’s highest level of certification (Level 4).
Responsible gambling is not a new concept to us and we continue to ensure responsible practices are integrated into day-to-day activities so that our lottery games are operated, marketed and sold in a socially responsible manner. To maintain this accreditation, the Lott must demonstrate, with evidence, our commitment to the continuous improvement of our responsible gambling practices. In this way, we maintain our focus on providing our customers with a safe, secure and friendly environment in which to play our games.
