You can't win if you don't play – Lottery Ticket [iOS App Review]

Are you a big lottery player, if so how many do you play? How do you keep up with the games? Lottery Ticket by EdenPod is a successful lottery app in Singapore that is now making its way to the US.  I have played a few lotteries over the years but I am not an everyday or weekly player. But if you are a regular lottery participant, (Mega Millions in the US) then an app like Lottery Ticket could be a big help.

The app is setup into three main sections:

Lottery Ticket – is where you can put your lottery ticket numbers. The app is setup to provide automatic results, in the form of push and email notifications.

Number Predictor – is where the app uses historical data to try and predict numbers with the highest probability of winning.

Ticket Analyser – is where the app checks how many times your or lucky numbers have won in the past 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, or 1 year interval.

The app is free but has a number of different add-ons you can purchase.

Probably my favorite section is the Fortune Cookie. Simply shake your iPhone to break it open. “A single conversation with a wise man is better than 10 years of study.” 

Since I am not an everyday lottery player, I decided to reach out to the developer for some more information. Below are the questions I posed.

Q.  What does one get with the all-in-one app purchase

A. The All-in-one in app purchase gives the user access to all features of the app along with a year’s subscription of checking results automatically. All features also include our number predictor & ticket analyser features across both – The US Mega Millions Lottery & All Singapore Lotteries.

Q. What future plans do you have for adding other lotteries?

A. We are currently working on providing support for all US State Lotteries in order to make our app the most comprehensive app in the market. We are also looking into the possibility of venturing into Europe for the Euro Millions.

Q. Users still have to keep their tickets correct, so why use this app?

A. The app completely eliminates the effort required on the user’s part to check their results manually once the lottery results are out. We have heard numerous stories about people losing out on big money because of checking against the results incorrectly or forgetting to check the results altogether. It is a form of assurance for the user as the results are checked through our automated system.

Q. There are quite a few lottery ticket apps on the market,  what makes your app different?

A. Our app serves more of an automatic ticket checker. Users don’t have to go through the hassle of manually comparing their ticket numbers against the draw results. All you need to do is key in your ticket numbers & the app tells you whether your ticket won or lost.

We also provide a push notification if the ticket numbers entered are before a draw date. This especially comes in handy for people who forget to check their results. So you can enter the ticket number on to the app as soon as you buy the ticket. When the draw results are out, we send out a push notification telling you whether you won or lost. Many other lottery apps that implement push notifications only do so for reminding users to check the draw results, which the user still has to eventually do manually.

So there you have it. If you are looking for a better way to keep track of your hopefully winning tickets,  Lottery Ticket could be your answer.
