The Lott in the community


Giving back to Australian communities is in our blood here at The Lott. In fact, we’ve been doing it for over 120 years!

As well as our contributions to State and Territory Governments, Tatts has provided support for charities and community events by supporting causes that mean a lot.

Over the years, if you’ve played lottery games, you’ve helped contribute to your local community – from funding the building of hospitals to assisting disaster recovery efforts.

And while we all love a win, there’s something we love even more, and that’s giving back to our communities.
