Tony DiMatteo, co-founder and CEO of Texas operator Lottery.com, believes ‘the future of the lottery is being able to play it wherever you may be,’ via apps and mobile devices.
His comments come in conjunction with Lottery.com, an online platform offering official state-sanctioned lottery games, announcing that its flagship app is now available on the Google Play Store as a free download.
It now extends its services to the Android platform and provides users in select locations with the ability to purchase lottery tickets for their respective state lottery games, as well as see lottery results from around the world for over 600 games in 38 countries in real-time.
DiMatteo said: “We believe the future of the lottery is being able to play it wherever you may be, directly on your mobile device. Launching our flagship app in the Google Play Store is an important step forward as it significantly expands our potential user base to the many millions of people that utilize Android devices in the US and around the world.
“We look forward to introducing our leading online platform to a vast and untapped market as we continue to expand our presence and execute our vision of becoming a global lottery marketplace suited for the digital age.”
With an estimated 250 million daily downloads, the Google Play Store broadens Lottery.com’s reach alongside its iOS app, mobile web-app, partner APIs, data distribution, and affiliate network.
Lottery.com provides lottery data to over 400 digital publishers, including hundreds of digital newspapers, television and news sites, and major digital publishers such as Google, Verizon/Yahoo, Amazon’s Alexa devices and more.
Last month, Lottery.com announced it is set to become a publicly-traded company on the Nasdaq stock market after Trident Acquisitions Group signed a binding letter of intent to acquire the broker.
