Lotto.com Ticket Sale Brings Lottery Courier Service to New Jersey
Yes Lotto.com Ticket sales are becoming a widespread phenomenon in the United States, it will be another gaming innovation for which New Jersey is responsible. New Jerseyans now have access to the lottery messaging service.
For New Jersey Lottery players, the service means a new way to buy tickets and redeem them for prizes. While the concept may be new to some Garden Staters, it is fairly straightforward.
How Lotto.com Ticket Sales Work
The Lotto.com system is not exactly exclusive or unique, although it is rare. It is the first courier service certified by the New Jersey Lottery, However.
Essentially, the platform converts physical lottery tickets into digital tickets on behalf of customers. Another company that offers a similar service is Jackpocket. However, there are a few differences between Jackpocket and Lotto.com.
The first is that Jackpocket works on a mobile app, while Lotto.com is a web platform. You do not need to download an app to use Lotto.com.
Additionally, Lotto.com does not require users to deposit funds in advance to make a purchase. Instead, Lotto.com customers pay for their purchases as they go.
In New Jersey, Lotto.com has partnered with Quick check, the state’s leading lottery retailer. When you place an order on Lotto.com, website staff will process your order at one of QuickChek’s locations.
Then the staff will create digital scans of your tickets. Buyers can verify their numbers using the website and if tickets are successful, arrange delivery.
Upon receipt, the process for claiming the prizes attached to the tickets is the same as if the players had purchased the tickets themselves in person. It may not be long before New Jersey residents are the only ones able to use the service.
NJ might be just the start
A press release says Lotto.com intends to expand nationwide. This will partly depend on legal / regulatory approval.
New York seems like a natural second market, as the New York Lottery has approved Jackpocket as a courier. In states that only allow retail sales, legal maneuvering may be necessary.
Technically, all sales will be done in person. However, it is the third party aspect of this service that may conflict with the laws of some states.
As Lotto.com can handle these issues in any state they may arise, the product has a future. This journey, no matter how small, begins in New Jersey.
