This App Will Let You Know if You've Won the Powerball Jackpot

This App Will Let You Know if You've Won the Powerball Jackpot
From Lifehacker - August 12, 2017

I dont typically play Powerball, but whenever the jackpots get super high I (like everyone else on the planet) head to the store to grab a ticket or two. The Powerball jackpot tonight is $356 million, which means if youre a gambling person (or maybe even if youre not), theres no time like the present to snag a ticket.

If youre not exactly jazzed about heading to your local gas station to pick one up, now theres an app called AutoLotto that can handle the whole process on your phone. It will also let you know when you win with those physical tickets you bought.

With it you can purchase a lottery ticket and find out if you won, right on your phone.To buy, you need to sign up within the app and then allow the app to geolocate your phone (determine what state youre buying the lottery ticket in). For now, buying within the app is restricted to just New Hampshire, the home of the lottery and where AutoLotto has an office. More states are expected to be added soon.
