Changed for the worse

The daily draw is gone which is disappointing but not the worst thing but I have noticed since that change there have been other changes. You don’t get as many winning spins and when you go get enough diamonds to spin for a chance at a free lottery ticket you never win anymore. I used to win a ticket maybe every 3 or 4 spins sometimes $1 or $2 once a $5 dollar nothing huge but it was a free ticket. Now the only thing you win is more free spins. I have an app to play on slot machines for fake money. I liked this app because after spending a few hundred on tickets I would usually win a free ticket now it’s just nothing. None of my losing tickets are ever added into the draw either it always tells me I haven’t scanned any tickets in. Which is weird because I scanned in the max amount allowed daily! Cheap

Whoever develops NY’s gov websites and apps should be embarassed

I downloaded this app specifically for the scanner and the scanner only, which I assume is the case for 99% of people. I come to find out that it’s never worked properly, and has not for 2+ years. Well over 1000 people have left a review reporting the issue in hopes that the developer would maybe fix the bug that completely breaks the app, making it completely useless for the majority of users.

The camera is not focused for the distance required to accurately scan. They present a white outline and instruct users to place the barcode inside, yet it’s so blurry you have to hold the ticket about a foot away for anything to be in focus. This is the only issue that makes the scanner unreliable, and solution is so beyond simple that there are 12 year olds who could fix it.

The only reason it hasn’t been done yet is because that don’t care. If they hosted ads and made money off people using it, it would have been fixed years ago. The app needs to ask the camera to autofocus, and that’s literally it.

Here NYS. Just copy and paste this into your AVCaptureSession, and it’s fixed.
if(captureDevice!.isFocusModeSupported(.continuousAutoFocus)) {
try! captureDevice!.lockForConfiguration()
captureDevice!.focusMode = .continuousAutoFocus
captureDevice!.unlockForConfiguration()

No barcode scanning capability

The only reason to have this app on your phone is to be able to scan the barcode on your ticket to check for winning numbers. Almost every other state’s lottery app does this (except for this one). Call me when you implement this feature. Meanwhile this app gets deleted off my phone.

(Update 1/4/21)
....On top of the above review (which still stands because they haven’t changed anything) and in NY’s continued celebration of mediocrity, the ny lottery website has recently been updated with LESS functionality. Before, you were able to check multiple plays (i.e. mega mil, powerball, take5 etc...) for winning numbers before clicking “submit”. Now you check numbers one line at a time, then you have to reset and start over entering the play date and next line of numbers on your ticket. Rinse and repeat. Total time waster. Total garbage.
