oyal Fortunes is the only platform certified by the government’s Minister of Finance for online sales of lottery products and other games of chance.
In addition to purchasing lottery tickets over the Internet, and on mobile devices, players who register with Royal Fortunes will be able to add funds for play and claim winnings through their player account at over 17,000 retail locations throughout the country.
Supporting the Royal Fortunes launch and helping educate players on its use, are two of the Dominican Republic’s most high-profile celebrities — Jochy Santos, host of the country’s number 1 rated television and radio programs, and Francisca Lachapel, co-host and reporter for Latin America’s top rated morning show, Univision’s Despierta America.
“Lottery players in the Dominican Republic are highly engaged, generating over $2.3 billion in annual lottery industry sales” said Frank Rash, Chief Operating Officer at Shoutz. “The Royal Fortunes platform complements the country’s adoption of new technologies, which includes a 93% penetration rate of smartphones, by providing players with a safe, convenient and fun way to enjoy their favorite games”, Rash said.
“We are delighted to work hand in hand with Royal Fortunes to provide our players the ability to buy their favorite games on the internet and mobile devices” said Pena Tavarez, General Administrator at Lotería Nacional. “Our goal is to use the power and reach of the internet so that Lotería Nacional is more accessible and in the hands of more and more players”, Tavarez said.
In the months immediately following launch in the Dominican Republic, Shoutz will further enhance the Royal Fortunes online platform with the introduction of instant win and casino games plus integration of the company’s proprietary Grand Rewards loyalty and second-chance platform and award-winning LotteryHUB mobile application.
In addition to the Dominican Republic and Sint Maarten, where Royal Fortunes launched in 2014, Royal Fortunes has secured lottery licenses and is preparing to begin operations in several other Latin American countries.
