Are lotteries moving out of newsagencies?

There is noise among newsagents that lotteries are moving away from them to clubs and big business. Getting a straight answer from Tattersalls, Golden Casket, NSW Lotteries, Lotteries SA and LotteryWest seems to be a challenge. If newsagents lost lottery traffic it would severely impact as they rely on habit driven lottery traffic to pull sales of newspapers and magazines – fixed price low margin products as are lottery products. Governments, State and Federal, ought to be interested in this. Newsagents have done an excellent job making lottery products accessible across the country. Now that brands are well established it would be grossly unfair to move the products to other channels.
