Ratings and Reviews
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
Easy to play difficult to scan tickets as expected
As expected it’s an easy informative lottery app to tell you all about how to play and what the winning numbers are come time to scan your tickets to see if you’ve won and the scanner work poorly. Many if not all apps with barcode scanners read in seconds or less. After 100 attempts a loser ticket scanned 2times but the winning ticket: didn’t scan ONCE. As expected the government run lottery falls short. Maybe they will increase the numbers again and make it more impossible to win- then maybe not update the app. Disappointed.
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.
....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.
