LOTTERY NOW ANNOUNCES MIDO LOTTO APP PARTNERSHIP WITH PAYPAL
Customer in California Can Now Use PayPal to Order Lottery TIcket
With the Mido Lotto App
(SAN FRANCISCO) – Lottery Now today announced a partnership with PayPal to bring its innovative payment system to the Mido Lotto app. This partnership allows Mido Lotto users to easily and securely order Powerball, Mega Millions and Super Lotto Plus draw-game tickets through the PayPal Express Checkout, making it even easier for Californians to order Lottery tickets from their phones.
“We are always looking for new ways to improve our users’ experiences and this exciting partnership with PayPal brings Mido Lotto customers the ability to pay with one of the most well-known pioneers in online and mobile payments,” said Lottery Now CEO Kevin Kramer. “PayPal is an excellent option for our customers to easily and securely load funds into their Mido Lotto accounts.”
Lottery Now launched its Mido Lotto app in California in April, allowing prospective Lottery customers to order and play from their phones while complying with stay-at-home orders and social distancing protocols. Mido Lotto is secure, easy-to-use and designed for all customers who use apps on their phones to conduct daily business, execute financial transactions and interact on social media.
While Mido Lotto is not affiliated with, nor endorsed by the California Lottery, the app complements the Lottery’s efforts to grow sales and support critical education funding by reaching and retaining new customers and audiences that previously would not have been inclined to participate in the Lottery experience.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, California faces the threat of an estimated $2 Billion drop in annual Lottery sales, and therefore an estimated $600 Million hit to school funding from Lottery proceeds. Mido Lotto’s mission is to help bolster sales during this time when in-person purchases are more difficult for players.
