20 November 2012 (Suresnes, France) – Following the success of the Euro Millions app launched last July, Lotsys Gaming Lab is now pleased to present the Loto® game application designed for FDJ, the French Lottery. With nearly one million downloads, the user-friendly app allows players to place a bet in just three clicks. Players may also change the numbers on their grids without clicking at all, simply by shaking their mobile device.
“We have put the user experience at the centre of the app’s development”, explained Renaud Dol, FDJ’s Head of Digital Content. “This partnership with Lotsys has made FDJ the first lottery with an iPad offer and the lottery with the best mobile game experience, thanks to all our native apps for iPhone, Android, iPad and Webapp.”
Figures clearly illustrate the positive outcome of the partnership towards full convergence: today 15% of FDJ’s digital revenue is from mobiles and tablets. Furthermore, FDJ’s apps are the most downloaded among m-commerce apps on the French AppStore.
Available for mobile phones and tablets, the app offers six different ways to play the Loto® game, and grids can be created offline. Players may also play simple and combined games with the same grid. Favourite grids may be saved and compared with the results of the last draws. Moreover, Loto® app users have access to the last 10 Loto results. Players can also receive alerts on the next jackpot or find the nearest points-of-sale.
“Lotsys has always provided us with cutting-edge solutions”, added Renaud Dol. Now they also excel in mobile ergonomics. During the app development process, Lotsys came up with many excellent ideas in this field – which are part of the app today. It is so easy and fun to use it! For us it is a strong sign that they are up to date with both lotteries’ and players’ needs in the mobile internet era.”
“Our main goal as a lottery industry supplier is to create solutions that meet our partners’ needs and expectations by combining top-notch technology and security with state-of-the-art ergonomics”, explained Mr Laurent Chesnais, Lotsys General Manager. “I am pleased and proud to realize that we were once again able to successfully meet FDJ’s expectations.”
As a specialist in both the internet and retail lottery business, Lotsys Gaming Lab handled the game’s entire development process and offers a constantly updated portfolio of games.
