How online lottery has revolutionized the way lottery is played
We would all love to get lucky! That’s why lottery games have a huge craze across the world. Apart from the potential prizes that a player could win, the sheer thrill involved in it draws more people to it every day.
Lottery is more of a “luck” game and the earliest record of it can be dated back to Keno slips played around 205 BC in China. From there, the idea spread all over the world and gained immense popularity. An otherwise unrelated development elsewhere in the mobile telephony world, would soon play a key role in the lottery business. This development is related to the invention of Public mobile phones in the 1940s, which grew in popularity in 1996 when Nokia introduced the Nokia 9000 Communicator mobile phone. The steadily burgeoning mobile revolution led to the creation of a whole new industry of online lottery systems and revolutionized the way lottery games are played everywhere.
The traditional method of playing lottery games has been the paper lottery system. While this system is generic, it lacks transparency and consistency. This problem of opaqueness in the operations and draws brought about the banning of this lottery system in a few States. The best thing about building an online mobile lottery system is that we can actually create a system where everyone has an equal chance of winning. With the increasing number of smartphone users, there will be more users preferring to play online lottery as time goes by.
The increase in the use of mobile phones for gambling is significant. Young people tend to use mobile phones more than any other age groups. According to a survey done by the UK Gambling Commission, 23% of people used mobile for gambling in the year 2013 and by 2018,44% of people used mobile for gambling. The percentage almost doubled within 5 years. Many countries have been quick to catch up with this trend of online mobile lottery and most state lotteries are getting an “App” upgrade. In the United States of America, many states including New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, etc. have launched their own mobile app and as per last year’s record, 44.4% of the Illinois lottery website visits had been from the mobile app users. In India, Online lottery system is introduced in the states of Sikkim, Karnataka, etc. with over 10,000 POS terminals installed across the many lottery-playing states. A similar system is available in England, Canada and other lottery playing countries.
With technology spreading out to almost everything, it’s time that we revamped old systems for good. The online/mobile lottery system will start becoming more popular and the next decade will see more players coming online to participate. The flexibility, convenience and the security this environment offers makes it a more credible option. If you are looking to build a mobile lottery app, don’t look back as creating one can help you reap significant fortunes. The statistics show some 10,000 downloads per week of the popular lottery apps and the growth of this trend is certainly in an upward curve.
