Lotto.com has been praised for its growth by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy during a private tour of its operations.
Governor Murphy visited the company’s headquarters in Jersey City to take a look at the progress made since it launched online operations in the Garden State in June 2021.
Lotto.com allows the purchase of lottery tickets on any device with no app download or deposit required, simplifying the process for New Jersey residents.
The firm also continues to add high-tech jobs in the state.
“Lotto.com is exactly the sort of company that is in the crosshairs of our economic development aspirations,” Governor Murphy said when addressing the Lotto.com staff.
“You are exactly the kind of company that we are relentlessly focused on getting here, birthing here, and growing here.”
Shortly after launching, Lotto.com received the Internet Responsible Gambling Compliance Assessment Programme (iCAP) certification, which recognised the work it had done to ensure its users gamble responsibly.
Meanwhile, 2022 has been a year of significant growth for the firm as it expands into numerous states across the US.
The digital lottery ticket platform recently expanded into New York, Texas and Colorado, but the centre of its operations still remain in its first home of New Jersey.
“It was an honour to have Governor Murphy visit Lotto.com’s headquarters in Jersey City,” said CEO Thomas Metzger. “Governor Murphy helped make the dream of Lotto.com become a reality.
“Lotto.com opened its first office during the pandemic in June of 2020. Since then we have grown from four employees to almost 100 nationwide, the vast majority of which are based in the Garden State.
“Lotto.com is grateful for Governor Murphy’s leadership and support of the New Jersey business community, especially during those challenging times.
“We look forward to continuing to grow in New Jersey and beyond over the coming years.”
