Title: System, Apparatus, And Method For Facilitating Remote Lottery Wager Communications.
Abstract: A system, apparatus, and method are presented for facilitating remote wager communications using mobile communications devices while the devices are within range of an authorized lottery transaction device.
In various embodiments, lottery transaction devices are equipped with multiple Bluetooth-enabled transceivers, a lottery server manages identifiers associated with the transceivers at each lottery transaction device, and issues an identifier of an available transceiver to a requesting mobile communications device at the time the mobile device desires to consummate a player’s desired transaction.
Portions of the desired transaction can be communicated to the lottery server separately from the Bluetooth network to limit the time spent by a mobile device communicating directly with the Bluetooth-enabled lottery transaction device.
In various embodiments, the mobile device issues a disconnect call to the lottery transaction device directly after the desired lottery transaction has been communicated.
