Commenting on the launch, Elmqvist said: “We started off by identifying what counts in the Lottery vertical and we quickly came to conclusion that it is all about a love of ‘numbers’. Everyone has a favorite or special number, sometimes more than one. If you ask anyone what their favorite symbol is, you will probably not get a decent reply, but ask them what their favourite number is and the feedback is instant.”
