Over $1M Lottery prizes claimed remotely


Lottery players have now claimed more than $1.1 million worth of prizes remotely using a new ticket-checking and prize-cashing feature on the Lottery’s smartphone app, the agency announced.

More than 44,000 Lottery players signed up to use a ticket-scanning feature the Lottery introduced to its app last year to let players remotely check whether their tickets are winners.

“The introducti­on of mobile cashing is a terrific advancemen­t for the Lottery as we adapt to new technologi­cal trends that have reshaped this industry,” Treasurer Deborah Goldberg, who oversees the Lottery, said. “It not only accommodat­es our customers, but has the added benefit of positive environmen­tal impacts by eliminatin­g unnecessar­y driving and production of paper checks.”
