ePass and the Future of Online Lottery Sales

According to a recent article in USA Today, some states are considering letting residents purchase their lotto tickets online. Obviously reducing or eliminating the chance of fraud will be a major criteria online lotteries must take into account. With ePass, the lottery player can digitally circle the numbers of their choice. Once their selections are registered, they would be assigned an electronic ticket with a changing barcode that's associated with the ticket they purchased.

A real solution for fraud prevention in online lotteries.

Here is a link to a video showing the possibilities of what online lotteries could be like in the not so distant future with the ePass solution.

Basically, it's our secure changing barcode algorithm that allows ePass to offer solutions to challenges like online lottery sales or confirmation of admission to ticketed or secure events where credential verification is needed.

With the changing barcode technology, even if the person who purchased their ticket should ever loose their electronic device, that won't matter because the barcode will always be changing until the lottery draw actually takes place. Now, if someone looses their phone with their digital ticket on it, the barcode associated with that ticket can be changed so the ticket on the device in the hands of the thief is no longer of any consequence. In today's world, if someone lost their ticket, that's tough luck for them. With ePass there is no chance of losing your ticket because it's in a secure digital format.

With the ePass, eLotto app, there's no need to go to the corner store or check the newspaper or look online because the winning numbers appear as circles when the actual live drawing takes place. If you're the winner, you're instantly notified about how much you won and if your ticket isn't a winner, well you're told to try again next drawing. The changing barcode prevents anyone else but the registered player from claiming the prize. 

The eLotto app circles the numbers when they are selected at the live drawing.
You're notified instantly if you're holding the winning ticket.
You're even given redemption options as to how you would like to receive your winnings.
