Louisiana Lottery launches new mobile app

On Monday, the Louisiana Lottery launched their official mobile app.

Now available in the App Store and Google Play, the lottery says that the app will allow users to check their tickets and create digital playslips for purchase at retail.

“With players’ ability to check their own tickets, the app promotes communication, trust and convenience. Our players have been asking for this type of feature, and we know it will be extremely popular,” explained Louisiana Lottery President Rose Hudson in a press release. “Finally, we believe the app can open up new sales opportunities by appealing to digitally-minded consumers and making ticket purchases more streamlined.”

To check any ticket using the app, Louisiana Lottery says players scan the bar code on the front of the ticket with their device’s camera. The app will let them know the status of their ticket, including whether it is a winner and the amount of the win. The results are stored in the app as a reminder for the player to cash any winnings.

The valid, original printed Lottery ticket is still required to claim a prize, according to the Lottery.

To purchase a draw-style game ticket using the app, players must first create their playslip on the app and present the resulting code to be scanned at retail. This feature allows the customer to decide on their numbers, the number of drawings and other game options before reaching checkout. The cost of the wager is also clearly communicated on the app in advance.

Tickets for Lottery games cannot currently be purchased on the app because of the state law prohibiting the online purchase of Lottery tickets.

The app can be downloaded in the App Store or Google Play.
