Lottery ticket app Lotto Mido extends to Montana. The company celebrates its launch in the Treasure State giving all eligible residents a free lottery ticket. Montanans can claim the ticket by downloading the Mido Lotto app and entering promo code “Treasure” before September 30.
Since its inception in California in 2020, the brand has become the highest-rated transactional lottery app on Apple’s iTunes Store with more than twenty-five thousand five-star reviews, according to the company. It quickly expanded to eight states, including neighboring Oregon. To date, its users have earned over $3 million.
Kevin Kramer, Company Founder and CEO of parent company Lottery Now, said: “We’re excited to offer Montanans a safe, convenient, and legitimate way to play Lottery games like Powerball and Mega Millions.”
“Since 1987, the Montana Lottery has funded important state programs, and we are thrilled to support these impactful comeback initiatives through additional ticket sales. Mido Lotto attracts mobile customers who don’t typically play the lottery the way it’s currently offered, meaning more contributions go to worthy causes such as public education, safety and health programs,” he added.
As part of its launch, Mido Lotto identifies local causes and organizations throughout Montana that it can support, says the company. For example, in Ennis, the app partners with both the chamber of commerce and the school district to identify the best restitution opportunities.
“As the only Montana-based company offering lottery courier services, we are heavily invested in supporting local communities across the state“, noted Kramer.
Adrienne Goldsworthy, Executive Director of the Ennis Chamber of Commerce shared that his team is “working hand-in-hand with Montana-based Mido Lotto management on a roadmap to make a measurable impact for local businesses and schools in our community. »
Similar to DoorDash or Instacart, Lotto Mido works as a middleman for customers to order official state lottery draw game tickets from their smartphones. Tickets for each order placed are shipped from an authorized Mido Lotto retailer in Montana, in accordance with state law.
Rich Wheeler, President of Lottery Nowcommented: “Players no longer have to worry about missing a draw, misplacing a ticket or forgetting to reclaim winnings. Now busy Montananese can enjoy the convenience of ordering tickets from anywhere in the state to save time – and don’t miss being part of the excitement that the Lottery brings. We look forward to some big winners in Montana.”
Players can use the app to send tickets as gifts, play with friends, and instantly claim winnings up to $600. For larger prizes, physical tickets are delivered securely to the player so they can collect their winnings at a redemption center in accordance with Montana State Lottery regulations.
