Not user friendly

This app was updated/replaced in October 2019. They removed the option to extend a subscription. Without a way to effective-date a purchase, you have to remember to go back in and buy a new block of tickets. There is an auto-renew option that buys new tickets automatically, which requires a debit card - no way to use funds already in your account (Why even have a wallet/funding option!). And the history is only last two weeks or month by month, requiring you to perform multiple history inquiries to find a transaction (purchase or win) for a date you might not remember. A past 12 months (or even 6 months) option would solve this. Would also be nice if it supported Face ID/thumbprint login. In a nutshell, this app is pretty rudimentary and leaves a lot to be desired.

New version needs work

I know it’s new so I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt and I’m sure they have things to fix and work out, but my user experience is far worse than the older app. I had to log back in twice during my session; it just logged me out for no reason. Two of my tickets wouldn’t properly scan despite multiple attempts and changing the lighting.

And I left the app for less than two or three minutes at the most and when I came back my cart that I had been building was completely cleared and I had to start all over. I ended up abandoning my cart for now rather than start all over. I do think choosing numbers is easier now in the format where all the numbers are laid out on a grid.

This app does not work for me.

I have an Apple IPad and I have not been able to get on the site because it’s telling me that my location cannot be verified. I have talked with support and they are telling me that Apple does not support the app and could give me little information. I was told to turn location on in the app and the device. Also said I had to clear cookies in cashe. Nothing worked. Was told to try another device which I only have Apple phone and IPad and was not possible because I don’t have another device. Old app worked fine. This is a bad app that needs to be fixed ASAP. In the meantime I will delete it. Too bad! Previous version worked just fine! Oh by the way you cant buy just one ticket!
