Game-Changing Lottery Innovations
Lottery games have been popular for hundreds of years; Keno slips dating all the way back to Han Dynasty have been found in China and the importance of the lottery for civil works in Europe dates back to Augustus Caesar.

Online lotteries have been possible for some time, but there are many other exciting developments that you might not be aware of yet. You can learn a little more, about just a few of them, below.

Smartphone Scratch Cards
Revealing a Scratch Card’s symbols as part of a mobile casino game is not new, but being able to do the same thing for a real ticket as part of an actual lottery is. Now an Austrian-based company has developed an app, for both iOS and Android smartphones, which allows you to “scratch” virtual cards with a few swipes of your fingers over your touchscreen. As well as being ultra-convenient, the paperless gaming has the potential to make a very positive impact on the environment.
Gaming on Lottery Sites
In today’s fast-paced world, people’s attention spans are short and they’re constantly looking for new ways to be entertained. Online lottery sites are using casino, Poker and other games to hold the attention of their customers. Buying a few tickets and then indulging in some exciting games seems to make people more inclined to visit again and repeat both activities.
Random Number Generation Results
As well as more advanced systems for drawing physical numbers, ensuring fair results, Random Number Generation software is increasingly used in lotteries. Once again, this technology has been the gold standard in online casinos for many years. The software is almost impossible to corrupt or bypass, so you can trust the lotto numbers completely.
