WA lottery launches “My Lottery 360°”
There are some new adjustments with this new “program” or no matter you wish to have to name it. Obviously maximum of you aren’t within the jurisdiction so it may not have an effect on you immediately.
There are adjustments going on to the app and price ticket scanning. Draw tickets at the moment are printing out with a special barcode, very similar to scratch price ticket barcodes if now not the similar. Previously they had been QR codes on draw tickets which may be scanned with the app. The QR code simplest contained the tickets quantity variety(s) and there used to be now not a real hyperlink to the original price ticket identity within the lotteries central pc.
The up to date app will now scan draw tickets and scratch tickets. A “My Lottery 360°” account is needed to scan tickets within the app and the price ticket historical past is stored to a customers account. Previously no account used to be required to scan draw tickets.
There is a “Points for Prizes” machine this is time table to grow to be energetic in 2020 and is related to the access/scanning of tickets to ones 360° account.
To me this appears to be some way for the lottery to trace particular person/common consumers similarly to how grocery shops have a membership card and monitor your entire purchases. I will be able to’t consider that the “points for prizes” are going to be all that treasured until it operates as 2d likelihood drawings.
I wager Stat$talker will assume that the ideas is used to trace gamers and stay them from profitable. WA state regulation says that the RNG device will have to now not be hooked up to every other machine or database.
The new ones at the left that distinctive determine the price ticket and the now “old” draw tickets with QR code at the proper.
Does your lottery have an app, if this is the case what do you bring to mind it?
The tickets in reality have a inexperienced tint despite the fact that now not arising at the scan.
