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.
Last financial year, Australia’s Official Lotteries contributed over $1.1 billion* to help support community initiatives like hospitals, schools and sporting groups.
You may not realise that by playing Australia’s official lottery games at your local the Lott outlet, you’re supporting small businesses who receive a lottery commission as part of your purchase. Last financial year we paid over $355 million in commission to more than 3800 retailers across Australia (excluding WA).
This included more than 440 division one prize winners# and 232 new millionaires in Australia. This isn’t surprising, with approximately 60 cents of every dollar you spend on lotteries going back into prizes for players~.
“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
“I got up out of bed and woke up properly and asked the person ‘Was that true? Or was that a dream? Did I really win the Lotto?” – Saturday Lotto drawn on 15 September 2018
“Oh wow! Hallelujah! I’ve been waiting all my life for this!” – Oz Lotto draw 1269 on Tuesday 12 June 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.
