Illinois Becomes First US State to Launch Mobile Lottery App

Illinois has become the first US state to launch a new mobile lottery app that enables US residents to purchase tickets to lottery games.

The app is the first of its kind in the country, allowing lottery players to purchase tickets and check jackpot values and winning numbers from mobile devices such as smartphones. Rolled out by the Illinois Lottery, the app enables lottery players to purchase Lotto, Mega Millions, and Powerball tickets and helps them use their device’s geo-locator feature to identify retailers nearby.

The app also delivers messages related to problem gambling and responsible gambling and includes a self-exclusion hotline for problem gamblers. Users can modify their app settings to limit the amount of money they spend on purchasing lottery tickets.

Anybody above the age of 18 can purchase and use this app.

In March 2012, the state of Illinois made headlines by becoming the first US lottery to expand online and allow customers to purchase lottery tickets online. The state has again become the country’s first to launch a mobile lottery app.

Lottery players in Illinois are happy about the app. This clearly indicates that mobile gambling is something that is becoming more and more popular as the days pass.
