If you live in the United States and are 18 years or older, you might want to take a look at a new application called LotteryHUB. They offer a bunch of features from watching the actual lottery draw for US Powerball and Mega Millions to simply storing your numbers. And the more you use their app, the more rewards you earn. Rewards can be traded for an assortment of gift cards. Yes, it’s free.
This is an app that can be downloaded for iPhones and Androids is an official partner of US Powerball & Mega Millions. Put in your lottery tickets into the app (but don’t look to scan them in) and they will let you know if you have won. You can watch the actual draws live. There are alerts on the latest jackpot amounts and winner. Lotteryhub.com will also let you check the results for state lotteries. While clicking around the app, you earn rewards.
Rewards at LotteryHUB
These rewards are earned as you view the different pages and/or use LotteryHUB.com. We couldn’t find any info on how many you collect per what you look at but the maximum you can get in one day is 2,500. These rewards can be used to get gift cards from AMC Theaters, 1-800 Flowers.com, Barnes & Noble, Target, TGI Friday’s, Amazon, Redbox, Walmart & Best Buy (current list). Who gets the rewards depends on your ranking – the app does let you know where you are in the ranking list. If there are five types of specific rewards left and you are the sixth that want it – you won’t. Though, it might say “pending” meaning if someone doesn’t actually collect the reward, you get it.
Whoops at Lottery HUB
Going into the two places where you can download the app (Apple iTunes and Google Play), the comments are not encouraging. There seems to be all kinds of glitches involving password reset, having to reinstall the app and no scan capacity for storing your lottery numbers. People also claim they picked their reward and then didn’t get it. My personal favorite was
“What an utter piece of garbage”.
Who Can Play?
Anyone can download the application and use it though they do say to collect rewards, you have to have an email address and provide basic information, be 18 years of age (or have permission from your parent or guardian) to use the app, and be a legal resident of the United States, the District of Columbia or Puerto Rico.
Talk to Lotteryhub.com
On LotteryHUB’s website, there are two email addresses (support & advertising) and they are good at responding quickly. There is no snail mail address or telephone numbers. This app is owned and operated by Shoutz Ltd. and head to their website and there is a heap of more ways to get in touch. There are also connections to Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
What Do You Think?
Given the comments already on the sites that you go to download LotteryHUB.com, I guess these guys (and gals) have their work cut out to fix some of the glitches and bugs. If you do live in the United States, it could be fun to collect some rewards – if you get them. Other than that, this application just doesn’t do enough.
Final verdict: 3 out of 10 stars.
