Scientific Games Corporation announced the launch of official mobile apps for the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery and Maryland Lottery and Gaming.
The apps were released for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets and may be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play at no cost.
The company's mobile technology provides lottery players with a ticket scanning feature and convenient mobile access to winning numbers, current jackpots, lottery game information, lottery retailer locator, winner stories and responsible gaming messaging.
Scientific Games provides official mobile apps for one in four U.S. lotteries, as well as the Slingo Lottery Challenge app in collaboration with its licensor and an app for the North American State and Provincial Lotteries Association.
Nearly 75 percent of mobile phone subscribers - 182 million consumers - in the U.S. now own smartphones according to data released by comScore.
"Today's lottery players are busy, tech-savvy people who want quick and easy access to information,” said Gordon Medenica, director of Maryland Lottery and Gaming
“This new app provides them with the type of convenience they have been asking for and have come to expect from the Maryland Lottery. I believe our players will respond positively to the ticket-scanning and retailer-search features."
