The launch was celebrated by offering all eligible residents a free Lottery ticket. The app can be used to send tickets as gifts, play with friends and instantly claim winnings up to $600; larger amounts can be collected using physical tickets which are securely delivered to the players.
Mido Lotto is also supporting local causes and organisations throughout Montana as part of the launch. For example, in Ennis, the app is teaming up with both the chamber of commerce and the school district so it can identify the best giveback opportunities with their help.
Kramer, CEO of Lottery Now, the company behind Mido Lotto, commented: “We’re thrilled to offer Montanans a safe, convenient and legitimate way to play lottery draw games like Powerball and Mega Millions. Since 1987, the Montana Lottery has funded important state programs, and we’re excited to support these impactful giveback initiatives through incremental ticket sales.
“Mido Lotto attracts mobile customers who typically don’t play the lottery the way it’s currently offered, which means more contributions going to worthy causes such as public education, safety and health programs.”
Rich Wheeler, President of Lottery Now, added: “Players no longer have to worry about missing a draw, misplacing a ticket, or forgetting to claim winnings again. Now busy Montanans can enjoy the time-saving convenience of ordering tickets from anywhere in the state – and not miss being a part of the excitement the Lottery brings. We’re looking forward to some big winners in Montana.”
