Extending The Lottery To The
Palm Of Your Hand
Mobile Lottery LLC was formed in
November of 2009 to extend the current online lottery infrastructure to a
mobile lottery platform. Technological advancements in mobile operator networks
and devices now allow for an efficient, eco-friendly and convenient way of
playing the lottery. While initial focuses pinpoint the United States, Mobile
Lottery LLC is also targeting international jurisdictions where permissible. As
a fully electronic system that can be designed, when necessary, to print only
winning tickets, the mobile lottery is easily one of the greenest mobile
applications to be conceived.
