Since launching just over a week ago for iOS and Android, the OLG Lottery App has received glowing 5-Star reviews, made TV appearances, and has even held steady in App Store’s “Top Free” category!

As the first official app from Ontario Lottery and Gaming, OLG Lottery, gives users the ability to scan and check their OLG Lottery tickets, no matter where they are. Besides the main functionality of checking tickets, the app also allows users to set jackpot reminders, scan gift cards, search winning numbers, and find their closest OLG retail partner.

“OLG lottery players asked for it, and we delivered!” said Wendy Montgomery, Senior Vice President of Lottery and iGaming. “The OLG Lottery app enhances the customer experience for Ontario players, providing them with a ticket checker that goes everywhere they go.”

The new app looks to utilize the convenience of mobile to make the the lottery experience easier and more enjoyable for their consumers – and it seems to be working, as the app has seen over 70,000 downloads in the first week, and enjoys a 4.5+ star rating in both app stores.

As for what’s next for OLG in the mobile space, Amanda Veraldi, Senior Manager of Digital Marketing adds, “OLG Lottery will continue to improve the lottery player experience through mobile technology. Understanding the evolving nature of the world of technology and based on important feedback from our players, we will continue to make enhancements to the OLG Lottery App with the goal of providing outstanding service to our customers.”

We could not be happier with how the first week of the launch has gone, and are excited to continue to work with OLG to deliver updates that improve the overall user experience!
