Whether they're in a university dorm or a retirement community, it seems everyone is carrying around a smartphone. No longer do people use their phones just to text, make calls, and get directions. Apps are available for everything from grocery shopping to Hollywood gossip – making these activities more accessible for consumers in the process. One popular area of apps is entertainment and gaming; now people have 24/7 access to sports scores, movie listings, and lottery results at the tip of their fingers. A leader in the field of online lottery theLotter is an international company that has been providing instant access to lottery news, results, and tickets to the world's biggest lotteries since 2002, making also an app product available for lottery fans worldwide. The app is free to download and is available for iPhone, Android, and iPad.
With the lottery app, consumers aged 18 and over are able to instantly access lottery results and prize breakdowns to over 75 lotteries around the world free of charge. Along with lotto results, consumers can purchase lottery tickets for over 45 of the world's top lotteries directly though the app, including Powerball, EuroMillions, and Mega Millions. After the draw has occurred, they can check to see if they've won any cash prizes via the app. App downloaders will also get jackpot alerts, global lottery information and news, and up-to-date information about the world's biggest jackpots and best lottery odds.
With the app, international customers can purchase lottery tickets without being in the country where the draw is taking place. For example, if a customer in France wants to purchase a US Powerball ticket, they can buy one through the app, and the Powerball ticket will be purchased in person by one of the US local offices. The ticket is then scanned for the customer's records and kept in a safe at the local office.

If downloading the app through the Apple App Store, iOS 6.0 or later versions are required. The app is compatible with iPhone (optimized for iPhone 5), iPad, and iPod touch. The average customer rating for all Apple versions of the lottery app is currently 4.5 stars out of 5. The app for Android can be downloaded directly through theLotter site.
