LotteryHUB becomes the official mobile partner for two of the biggest lottery brands in the world
RELEASE DATE: 4/1/2014
Austin, Texas – Shoutz, Inc. today announced a partnership which combines Mega Millions® and Powerball® in one official mobile app, LotteryHUB, serving the collective market of over 120 million Americans who play the lottery each month. This new agreement with Mega Millions follows the official partnership with Powerball, now making LotteryHUB the official mobile app of two of the largest lottery brands in the world. LotteryHUB is now the official national mobile destination for Powerball and Mega Millions numbers, serves as the mobile video host of the four weekly national drawings, and is the mobile source of official news and the mobile player service. The mobile player service is designed to take the work out of keeping up with the lottery, and allows Mega Millions and Powerball fans to easily follow the jackpots, check and track matching numbers, watch live drawings and receive the latest lottery news and tips – all while earning rewards and benefits. The LotteryHUB app is available now for free on iOS and Android devices via the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Timed with the 50-year anniversary of the first US lottery, this multi-billion dollar industry is officially going mobile. The US lottery industry revenues are more than two times greater than the collective U.S. revenues from movie box office, video game and music sales. In 2013, US lottery sales totaled 74 billion dollars, with lotteries awarding on average more than 100 million dollars of prize money to lottery players in North America every day.
“Now, with LotteryHUB, millions of lottery players across the country can follow the two most popular national games in one official app,” said Brad Duea, President of Shoutz, Inc. “LotteryHUB makes it more convenient for players to engage with Mega Millions and Powerball while also creating new opportunities for our partners.”
“More and more lottery players are going mobile,” said Paula Otto, Mega Millions Lead Director and Executive Director of the Virginia Lottery. “We are thrilled to partner with LotteryHUB to satisfy the demand for mobile services among Powerball and Mega Millions players. Now America’s next multi- millionaire lottery winner will be able to discover the life-changing news easier than ever before.”
“LotteryHUB has been a fantastic partner with Powerball in providing a mobile engagement and monetization solution that is capable of reaching and engaging the massive community of players who play the national lottery games,” said Chuck Strutt, Executive Director of the Multi-State Lottery Association.
LotteryHUB is the only mobile app that provides live streaming of Powerball and Mega Millions drawings to smartphones and offers the most up-to-date and comprehensive source of numbers, news and exclusive lottery content. It also brings ticket tracking tools to iOS and Android users, enabling players to save their tickets into the LotteryHUB app and opt-in to receive alerts on their mobile device when they match a winning combination of the Powerball or Mega Millions numbers in any given drawing.
