Clever Lotto: Mega Millions & Powerball – Review
App Type: News
If you are one who plays the one of the two big multi-state lottos, Mega Millions and PowerBall, then you are probably looking for a tool to help you track and follow the results.
Clever Lotto is a tracking tool for the iOS that will show you the current and past results of either lottos. The starting screen has a nicely layout that shows the current jackpot and current numbers for both lottos. The top of the screen offers a settings panel as well as easy access to adding new tickets.
The new ticket screen doesn’t offer any way to input the tickets except manually. You can name each ticket for organizational purposes. You can add up to twelve sets of numbers and can set the ticket for up to twenty-six draws. Numbers are taps from a grid, or if you just want random numbers you can shake the phone to give you a random set. At the bottom is the total cost of the ticket as you set it up.
The next tab gives you the past draws and tapping on them gives you a break down on the winners for each level. The third panel if you current tickets. From here you can edit or delete you tickets as needed. Another feature of Clever Lotto is the share button. You can share your results vis the usual suspects, or you can actually email the ticket to someone else. An attachment is added that the user can tap on to import a ticket into another device running Clever Lotto.
Finally, the Statistics page offers a nice break down on your spending, and hopefully, winning. You can see what numbers you have played the most. There is also a general statistic which shows the numbers most and least played. If you are someone who likes to play the odds, but feel disorganized with your tickets, or perhaps you keep forgetting to check your results, then Clever Lotto is just the…ticket! It will even give you a notification of when new numbers have been drawn for a ticket you bought. So do yourself a favor and buy one less ticket today and pick up this app. If you are one of out Euopean readers, there is a version available that works with Lotto 6aus49 and EuroJackpot.
