AUSTIN, Texas, March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Lottery.com, the leading global online lottery platform, is currently reporting an increase in online and mobile sales as Americans embrace technologies that allow them to perform traditional retail transactions in a digital environment.
Americans are replacing many traditional retail services with online alternatives at a rapid pace. Examples of this include Netflix and streaming services seeing higher consumer demand, Amazon seeing increases in online shopping for traditional goods, and auto dealers moving to an online sales experience with home delivery of purchased vehicles. Along these same lines sale of lottery tickets online has also increased sharply, driven by a demand from consumers to perform purchases in ways that are alternative to traditional retail sales.
"The states need lottery revenue more than ever," said Tony DiMatteo, CEO of Lottery.com. "People also take comfort in being able to have access to services that are part of their daily life, even when social interaction is being cut back," continued DiMatteo.
Lottery.com allows consumers in many states to legally purchase real lottery tickets, like Powerball and Mega Millions, using their smartphone or computer. Prior to the current social distancing trends being embraced, Lottery.com had already begun to see an escalation in the sale of Powerball tickets online.
"People really need a way to re-capture a part of normal daily life - something to look forward to in these hard times - and lottery gives them that. Even in times of economic hardship, lotteries have always given people hope, while simultaneously contributing to good causes," said co-founder and Chief Commercial Officer, Matt Clemenson.
