txtGroups and Lottery Post Team Up to Provide Text Message Lottery Results
txtGroups, Inc. and Lottery Post announced today that they are joining forces to provide instant lottery results to North American SMS subscribers.
The new cell phone text messaging service, called "Lottery Results Mobile Alerts," covers every lottery game played in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, and United Kingdom. Other worldwide lottery games will be added soon.
Anyone with a cell phone can sign up for lottery results by sending a simple keyword on their phone. For example, to register for Powerball results, users send the keyword "Powerball" to 89847. The Lottery Post web site contains a list of keywords corresponding to all of the available lottery games.
"Lottery players love the simple and quick signup," said Todd Northrop, CEO of Lottery Post. "Our subscribers fall in love with the service once they realize they no longer need to seek out lottery results in the newspaper, on TV, or online. It's like having an assistant personally delivering the results right after the drawing, and you don't need a computer!"
Minutes after the lottery publishes the lottery results, subscribers receive a text message containing the results. With hundreds of lottery games available, thousands of messages being sent every day, and subscribers spread across dozens of different proprietary wireless carriers, choosing a robust delivery platform was essential.
"txtGroups is partnered with all major US and Canadian wireless carriers and we are committed to providing quality content in a timely matter," said Jennifer Tomblin, VP Sales and Communication for txtGroups, Inc. "We are more interested in satisfying long-term subscribers than a one-time user, which is why we charge significantly less per message than our competitors do for similar services. We also provide excellent customer service and focus on satisfying our subscribers."
"Most subscribers sign up for the lottery service around lottery draw dates but rarely cancel their subscription once they discover the service is so reliable, convenient, and useful," Northrop explained. "People also like the simplicity of having the service cost added directly to their phone bill, rather than using a credit card or bank account. Their personal information stays private."
