Ratings and Reviews
Mobile app ‘drive to your nearest retailer’
This app is a great idea in concept but not executed very well. The Bluetooth range needed to purchase tickets seems counterproductive to having the option of ‘buying online’ benefit?! If I have to drive to the retailer to use this app why wouldn’t I just walk into the store and purchase tickets myself?
I purchased this app to help with COVID19 pandemic safety and I really wish it could be used without going to the retailer.
My other complaint would be with the navigation tools within the app. They need updating so when you do purchase several plays of one or more draw games you can easily see the dates you’ve bought. I purchased several but had the hardest time trying to find/calculate when my purchased tickets would end so I knew when to repurchase?! It’s listed as “transactions” but you have to click too many times to find this hidden info. It should be more apparent and show “your upcoming draws” by dates. I’m optimistic that this app has ability to grow into something more progressive so I’ll watch and be hopeful someone is working to read all these reviews and improve this great idea into something that makes sense for 2020 and the social distancing needed right now :)
Great Concept but Poor Functionality
I have an IPhone Max and this app does not allow FaceID to login. Every time you go into the app you have to login, it does not keep you logged in. Sometimes the app just doesn’t work at all, I will open it and all I see is a blank screen and sometimes the winning numbers aren’t shown. Very slow and sluggish once you are able to sign in. I find it very frustrating that I easy pick my numbers then if I get an error message when the app is searching for the Bluetooth signal, I loose those numbers and have to start all over again and loose my easy pick numbers.
You would think that all the money that VA lottery pulls in that they would have the best developers to create this app with the best technology so this app will work flawlessly. At this stage this app is just a Prototype, there is no reason why in 2019 that an app has this many issues. Maybe the whole team needs to go back to the drawing board and maybe involve customer suggestions to help build a more efficient and fun app for the customers. Take your time with it and don’t let the push to prod date be a factor. I would rather wait longer for a great quality app instead of the “putting the lipstick on the pig and shoving it in approach” b/c that only hurts VA Lottery and does not help the customers hence this app’s ratings.
When it works it’s ok, but it often does not work
Echoing other reviewers, this app is a great concept that has been poorly executed. I find that literally one-half of my purchase attempts fail, for two reasons.
First, the lottery machines sometimes won’t process my purchases because, according to messages I receive, the system is undergoing maintenance. This happens quite often at various times of the day.
Second, the machines themselves other times cannot process my purchases for reasons unclear. Sometimes trying a second time succeeds, but not always.
In both cases, it would help to receive a message BEFORE attempting a purchase that the system won’t be able to process it. This should be easy to incorporate into the app, particularly when the system is down for maintenance. It would save wasted time and prevent frustration.
I also find the interface a bit clunky with unneeded extra steps, but I can live with that.
Virginia should change the law requiring physical proximity to a retailer to use the app to make a purchase. This is not the app developer’s fault, but it eliminates much of the advantage of using the app. Changing the law should encourage greater use of the app and more sales.
