The trend towards convenience and online services continues with this unique concierge service that travels to the store to both purchase tickets and redeem the winnings on behalf of users. Winning player accounts are then funded with 100% of their prize money. LottoGopher keeps no portion of the prizes, large or small.
With lotteries across the country facing an aging user base, LottoGopher provides an innovative way to bring in younger players that prefer technology-enabled entertainment. This in turn brings in additional revenues for the educational programs the lottery supports by bringing in players who wouldn’t normally travel to the retail outlet on their own.
For consumers looking to get a winning edge by playing in “pools”, online social networks provide a familiar forum to create and play in groups. Aside from making the traditional office pool easier to manage, players can also create lottery groups from their Facebook, Twitter and other online networks by inviting friends or join public pools with other community members.
LottoGopher also features a monthly subscription option, so consumers can carefully budget with controlled spending instead of impulse buying. This feature also ensures that regular players always have their favorite numbers in every drawing without having to rush out to the store at the last moment.
Consumers remain the legal owner of any lottery tickets ordered, with a sophisticated system that tracks orders, ticket transportation and a secure storage vault. LottoGopher audits all security procedures using the latest encrypted 128 bit SSL technology, and features secure privacy for subscribers and appropriate safeguards to ensure age verification.
