Have you had complaints about online Tatts customer winners?

A couple of newsagents have mentioned this week comments by customers complaining about division one winners being online winners, i.e. not from over the counter purchases.

I raise it here at the request of newsagents – to see if others have had such complaints.

    we never mention about online winners.(becoz many lotto players are superstitious and might switch ). When they enquire about winners we might say 2 winners from QLD, or WA amd other two from somewhere. But customers can find it anyway though.

    I kept records for a six month period last year. For every online winner, there were approximately eight lotto shop winners. In fact, each year local lotto shops create more new aussie millionaires than every other form of gambling put together. If you wanna get rich, don’t stuff around with casinos, online, horses or Nigeria. Your local lotto shop’s the best place to go. (insert thumbs up symbols) Plus, you don’t get stung by the cash advance fees that gouge many online purchasers.

    I do not know where to go to find out how to solve this problem. I have winning scratches but do not know where to get them cashed in as I do not know where the person who gave them to me purchased them.

    Dalma:

    Please go to your local newsagent or lotto retailer and let them check your instant scratch-its.

    If your scratch-its were issued from your state, and less than 4 years old, then your local lotto retailer will be able to pay you in cash/free tickets.

    If your scratch-its were issued from your state, and more than 4 years old, then your local newsagent can give you a copy of prize claim form, you can follow the instruction on the form to claim the prize from Lotteries head-office in your state.

    If your scratch-its were issued from other states in Australia, then your local newsagent may help you to identify which state issued the scratch-its.
    You can request a copy of prize claim form from lotteries head-office in that state , following the instructions on the claim from, and they will send your prize by mail.
