In order to offer our customers The Lott app for iOS and Android, we must comply with App Store and Google Play guidelines.
The current guidelines state that 'Apps that offer lotteries must have necessary licensing and permissions in the locations where the App is used, must be geo-restricted to those locations, and must be free on the App Store.'
Based on these guidelines, and as the official licensed lottery operator across all of Australia's States and Territories excluding Western Australia, we are required to request your location when using The Lott app to ensure you are physically located within one of our approved jurisdictions.
