The National Lottery App now allows players to play and win anywhere with Lotto, EuroMillions, Daily Million and Instant Win games. The updated app was launched yesterday on the iPhone App Store, giving players the chance to become a winner wherever they are with a few simple taps.
The company plans to add the new features to the Android version of the app later this summer.
Similar to online game play, players never have to miss a draw, by choosing Advance Play with the National Lottery App; perfect for when going away on holidays.
The National Lottery App continues to offer players information such as draw results, jackpot reminder notifications, a ticket scan facility to check if they are a winner, number check functionality and nearest National Lottery outlet locator, all from within the App.
David Evans is Head of Digital at the National Lottery:
“We are thrilled to launch the enhanced National Lottery App today, allowing players to play and win on the go wherever they are, be it in commute, out for a coffee or lying on the beach. Since launching phase one of our app plan in February of this year, there are already over 120,000 users regularly using the app.
“Right now, 50% of all National Lottery games played online are from a mobile-optimised version of the website, indicating that mobile play is hugely popular and will continue to grow. Our customers have indicated that they want the option to play online from the app and this investment is an important commitment from the National Lottery to give our players the best user experience possible on whichever platform they choose to play on. We will also be offering a solution for Android users in the near future.”
