WA Premier Mark McGowan has stated that the State Government will be drafting legislation to ban the online site Lottoland in an attempt to protect Lotterywest.

The Independent Gambling Authority of South Australia made it an offence for Lottoland to sell its products to South Australian residents. WA will take a similar approach in a bid to protect Lotterywest who, unlike Lottoland, gives a significant amount of money back to the community.

Lottoland is an online gambling site where people can bet on Australian and International Lottos. The site is rising in popularity in Australia and as a result of this rising popularity, and the popularity of similar sites, plus WA’s economic downturn, sale in Lotterywest declined by $60 million in the last financial year.
