- Helps lottery players social network with other players to form game pools
- Company expects to reach nearly half the United States by end of 2018
- Famed Star Trek, Priceline actor William Shatner acts as company spokesman
California residents playing the MEGA Million, Powerball and Super Lotto Plus lotteries may now find it easier than ever to team up with other lottery players in the hope of bettering their chances of winning, thanks to a publicly traded online service that brokers ticket purchases for customers who don’t want to wait in line themselves, or who may not know other players willing to pool their resources.
LottoGopher Holdings Inc. (OTCQB: LTTGF) (CSE: LOTO) (FRA: 2LG) is a messenger service that provides the in-person buyers for subscribing clients to what is essentially the company’s large “social network for playing the lottery.”
LottoGopher users have a range of options to choose from, whether playing the California lotteries as individuals with a single ticket or as public or private groups connected by a common desire to pool resources for a better chance at winning millions, or even billions, of dollars.
Last year, the Powerball jackpot reached $1.59 billion before winners in three states — including California — claimed a split of the prize. The Powerball was again poised to reach the $1 billion mark in August of this year before that was preempted by a $758.7 million winner in Massachusetts.
In California, where LottoGopher is offered exclusively at the present time, some 39 million residents spend about $6 billion each year on lotteries. And the company is laying the groundwork to enter the market in nearly two dozen other states by the end of 2018, including Texas.
A “key legal contractor” employed by the company is advising LottoGopher and helping it through the due diligence process for “Phase 1” of its launch in a number of states outside California, the company told Newsfile Corp. in September (http://nnw.fm/9dxmO). “What we’ve done is take our model and apply it to the existing compliance structure within each state,” LottoGopher President, CEO and Director James Morel said during an interview with NetworkNewsWire in September (http://nnw.fm/u2eX3). “We’ve put executives in place who have experience in working at the lottery level. Between the game plan and the people we have to execute it, we hope by the end of 2018 to be in all 22 of those expansion states,” Morel said.
LottoGopher’s anticipated expansion to nearly half the nation creates the possibility of even larger network options for players who want to pool their resources with others to boost their odds.
For now, the company’s growth in California is enough to gain national attention. The same month that Morel’s interview was published, LottoGopher announced that actor William Shatner, known for his landmark role in the Star Trek franchise and other TV series as well as his humorous appearances as an advertising spokesman for discount travel site Priceline (NASDAQ: PCLN), has been signed as the spokesman for the lottery messaging service (http://nnw.fm/8S0ma).
Approximately $2 billion in lottery prizes remain unclaimed each year, according to estimates reported by CNN last year (http://nnw.fm/4M2Su). LottoGopher’s resources provide forgetful users the ability to easily organize and keep track of their investments in a potentially life-changing state gaming system.
