ottery.com, an online platform to play the lottery from a mobile device, announced on Thursday that Colorado is the latest state for its web and mobile users to play their favorite lottery games online.
Lottery.com continues to expand its services across the U.S., allowing users to play from the comfort of their own homes as lotto fever kicks in. The Mega Millions jackpot is at an estimated $625 million, which is the 8th largest in jackpot history, and Powerball is at an estimated $550 million. This is an opportune time for the Company to expand into Colorado, as this is the third time in the history of both games to have simultaneous jackpots over $400 million.
Expanding Lottery.com’s reach into Colorado not only helps the state generate revenue, but also helps to fund the great outdoors. The Colorado Lottery is the only state lottery in the country dedicated to conservation and has given more than $3.5 billion back to parks, trails and recreation projects.
"Having been born and raised in Denver, I am thrilled to be launching our platform in my home state," said Tony DiMatteo, CEO of Lottery.com. "As more and more people are staying home and safe, we are happy to provide a solution to allow users to play the lottery safely and securely, from the comfort of their own home, while supporting the beautiful parks, trails and open spaces that Colorado has to offer."
On November 19, 2020, Lottery.com announced a binding letter of intent to combine with Trident Acquisitions, which would make Lottery.com a publicly-traded company on The Nasdaq Stock Market.
