ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 6, 2014) - The North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries reported that a recent Gallup Poll on Gambling in America found that 57 percent of American adults reported buying a lottery ticket in the past 12 months. Launching today, the Lottery Live app is changing the way those adults partaking in the lottery play the game and monitor for winnings. This app, now available in the Apple App Store, helps users manage their lottery tickets, become notified immediately after the drawing of any winnings, find out current jackpots and past jackpots for any lottery, has a GPS store locator and utilizes a random number selector of hot and overdue numbers to choose the best options.
"There have been multiple situations where multi-million dollar winners accidently throw away the winning ticket, haven't noticed that they've won a large sum of money and forgotten their numbers," said John Thomas, COO of JM Technologies LLC, creators of Lottery Live. "Lottery Live helps users avoid the heartache of striking luck but missing it, or always wondering what they might have won."
Lottery Live offers a random number selector utilizing an algorithm, push notifications for winnings, a lottery wallet feature to store your ticket numbers, but also a GPS locator to find stores near users to purchase lottery tickets no matter where they are. The North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries reported that lottery tickets are sold at more than 240,000 locations throughout North America, and this app helps you to find them. The function goes a step further in the ability to set reminders and receive alerts when the winnings of your favorite lottery reach a certain amount.
"I came up with this part of the application when I was traveling for business," said Thomas. "I knew the jackpot was going to reach a higher amount than usual and so I wanted to make sure I bought a ticket but wasn't familiar with the area. I wanted to use my standard GPS on my phone to find a store but wasn't sure if they sold lottery tickets, since not all stores do."
Lottery Live is available for iPhones in the Apple App Store and is coming soon for Android and Windows devices. For more information: http://lotteryliveapp.com/
