AN increase in sales of lottery tickets and scratch cards of 10 per cent has put Lotterywest’s total end-of-financial-year community contribution at a record $191 million. The result was on the back of a 10 per cent increase in revenue to $599 million for the year ending June 30. Western Australia’s hospitals and public health services received $92 million, which was 40 per cent of the profits from Lotterywest product sales and 33 per cent more than the previous year. WA sporting groups and associations, including the WA Institute of Sport, received $12 million. The arts in WA also received $12 million to support a variety of groups and projects, such as WA Ballet, WA Opera and the WA Symphony Orchestra. The state’s film funding and development agency, ScreenWest, and the Perth International Arts Festival received almost $4.2 million. Lotterywest’s own in-house direct grants program funded more than 1,000 organisations for a total of $75 million, with the biggest grant being $3 million for the new Geraldton Lotteries House, which will accommodate a variety of not-for-profit groups servicing the region. The most popular product with WA lottery players continues to be Saturday Lotto, with sales of $302.3 million, an increase of 3.8 per cent on last year.
