he Rhode Island Lottery and the Tennessee Lottery Corporation are now offering these apps to their players.
Each app is individually branded for the lotteries and gives players quick access to real-time lottery information including jackpot information, winning numbers, lottery retailer locations, instant games information, and details related to responsible gaming. Both apps also feature a "Check My Ticket" function that enables players to scan both instant tickets and draw tickets with their mobile devices, and check if they hold winning lottery tickets.
"As consumers' reliance on their mobile devices continues to grow, so does IGT's commitment to innovation in the mobile space. IGT is committed to ensuring that our customers have access to the most advanced lottery technologies for their players. The Rhode Island Lottery and the Tennessee Lottery Corporation are longtime IGT customers, and we are confident that their evolution in the mobile space with these convenience apps will help them maximize income for their states and enhance funding for good causes," said Michael Chambrello, CEO of North America Lottery for IGT.
"The launch of Rhode Island Lottery's player convenience app is a reflection of our commitment to favorable player experiences that sustainably grow the program. This app also helps support our valued retail partners by putting helpful retailer location details and comprehensive Rhode Island Lottery information in the palm of players' hands anytime, anywhere," said Gerald S. Aubin, Director of the Rhode Island Lottery.
