Lotterywest, the State lottrry of Western Australia, have a Player's Card system.

A Lotterywest Player’s Card can:

  • make it easy to receive any prizes you win
  • store your favourite numbers
  • provide you with some protection if you lose your ticket

How it works

Claiming your prize

With a Lotterywest Player’s Card, it doesn’t matter if you forget to check your numbers. Any prizes will be
automatically sent to you five weeks after the draw, provided they have not already been claimed.
However, it’s still important you keep your tickets in a safe place, to make sure no one else claims any winnings before we deposit into your account or send you a cheque.

We all get a lot out of lotteries!

    We have it here in Michigan. It's call the WonCard. Very few retailers know what I'm talking about when I try to use my card.

    I will quit playing the lottery, as soon as I break even.

        Yes, but here your winnings are wired to site account and should you want to claim at a store you need your card if you played with it, the ticket is not enough.

          Sounds like just more work for the retailers and many retailer don't like checking tickets to see if they are winners.  Once they get their 5% for selling them they want nothing else to do with them unless they are big winners which will give them an additional commission.

            It's really not much work, they just need to pop the card in like one would into an ATM.

              If you play by subscription you don't need to bother with surly store staff. If you win the lottery will email you. If it is a small prize, it Will be credited to your account. For large prizes a claim forn must be submitted.

                Lotteries is the US aren't set up that way, most don't even have subscriptions.

                  i think i have posted often on the fact my state uses  card  and subscription via online purchase,. even with recurring purchases, called autoplay.  when the   meteor hits, i might be fresh out of luck with my online account  and saved tickets. but that only happens as often as i win lotto. or less than as often as im sposed to win lotto so, hey its all good.

                  I will taunt you all with a screen shot of my  subscriptions
