A mobile app available in Apple’s app store, AutoLotto offers users a convenient way to play the Powerball on mobile devices. Among AutoLotto’s numerous features are MoneyLine and random number generation.
Each lottery win is remarkable in its own way, but some lottery stories truly astound, including that of double winner Stephen Cooke.
A Georgia resident, Cooke experienced his first lottery win when he was one of three players to share a $70 million jackpot. According to the Mega Millions website, this win meant that Cooke beat odds of 1 in 258,890,850.
While in the process of collecting the $13 million in winnings from the first ticket, Cooke discovered that he had another winning ticket, entitling him to another $13 million from the same drawing.
In total, Stephen Cooke walked away with $26.6 million from his double win, in addition to two $150 prizes he also won from the same drawing by playing numbers he chose through a combination of family birthdays.
Created by tech entrepreneurs Matt Clemenson and Tony DiMatteo, AutoLotto allows users to play and monitor major US lottery games, such as Powerball and Mega Millions, using their phones. Built in an attempt to bring technology to paper tickets, AutoLotto offers a range of benefits to users.
As a ticket management service, it eliminates the risk of losing a paper ticket. Also, players can claim winnings instantly instead of going to a store to get the ticket verified. Given that over $2 billion in lottery winnings go unclaimed in the United States every year, the safety, security, and automation offered by the app are some of its key features.
Convenience is also placed at the forefront, with players able to get tickets in just a couple of taps, completely free of commissions and fees. Further, the app offers a variety of incentives, including a free ticket on signup and a referral program that offers users a free ticket for every friend who signs up to the app.
