Jumbo Launches World's First Lottery App for Apple Watch

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- Mar 31, 2015 -- Jumbo Interactive Ltd. (ASX: JIN), a leading interactive lottery business, today launched the world's first lottery application for the new Apple watch at the SMART-Tech 2015 Lottery Conference hosted by the Public Gaming Research Institute for U.S. and international lottery executives in New York City, March 30-April 1.

This innovative application brings the action of the lottery right to users' wrists. It sends immediate alerts regarding prizes, winning numbers and upcoming draws and enables users to manage ticket purchases from their Apple Watch.

Mike Veverka, Founder and CEO of Jumbo Interactive Limited, noted, "There are things you want to be told about immediately and winning the lottery is certainly one of them. The Apple watch paves the way to a new era in wearable technology and we are excited to leverage this personalized platform to bring Jumbo's lottery experience to new heights."

"Jumbo is using technology innovation to make the lottery a cutting edge experience accessible to all," continued Veverka. "Our success over the past decade has shown that technology improves the experience of playing the lottery and opens up new demographics that might not otherwise engage in lottery play. We have used this strategy to expand online gaming and significantly increase online market share. In 2012, we released a lottery app for the iPhone and a new trend driven by the convenience of mobile lotteries began. This new app for the Apple Watch is designed to keep the lottery experience exciting and entertaining for today's technology savvy consumers."

The Jumbo lottery app will be available through the Apple app store when the watch begins shipping on April 24, 2015. Live demonstrations of the new app are available at www.jumbointeractive.com
