This story from the respected ABC is one newsagents who sell lotteries may want to share on their business social media pages.

A foreign citizen who was ineligible to enter an Australian lottery has failed in his bid to get Lottoland to pay a $700 million fine, as well as paying him $201 million on the basis that he would have won that amount — if his bet had been successful.

The Sri Lankan national was living in Perth at the time he placed three bets totalling $50 on April 18 and 19 last year.

Two of the bets were unsuccessful and the third was voided when Lottoland identified the man as being a national of a country on its excluded list.
