Just got this in, NearU has teamed up with LotteryUSA to implement a new service that sends you the winning lottery numbers by text message.
PASADENA, Calif., June 9 /PRNewswire/ — NearU Search (http://www.nearusearch.com/) has inked a deal with Ann Arbor, MI based lottery results provider LotteryUSA (http://www.lotteryusa.com/) to offer the most recent draw information to members via text message. The LottoWatch premium subscription will be available in June across all 50 states.
“This is the promise of mobile convenience. The Internet is great when you have time. But time is so scarce. People are looking for ways to make information come to them. That’s where we come in.” said Heather Mlodinow, NearU Search CEO. LotteryUSA users will be able to sign up for winning number text alerts on the LotteryUSA site.
“LotteryUSA has always been about helping users access the latest lottery results with ease. NearU Search is all about providing convenient, fast, wireless access to a variety of data, making them a perfect partner for bringing LotteryUSA to the Mobile market. We are excited that NearU Search has been able to deliver this solution so quickly.” said LotteryUSA’s Fred Weiss.
Ms. Mlodinow said, “LotteryUSA subscribers will be getting winning number alerts for each lottery draw. Now we’ll be able to spot a winner — look for the gal dancing in the street waving her mobile in one hand and her lottery ticket in the other!”
I like it! I would love to find out instantly if I’m a millionaire, it beats waiting for the 11 o’clock news for the “unofficial” numbers or the newspaper the next morning.
