Canadian lotteries have brought out a new feature for the lottery players where you can build your own lottery ticket. Also you can check your lotto ticket and find out if you have won or not. All you need is to download the free Lotto Spot app that comes from WCLC (Western Canada Lottery Corporation) on your cell phones and get started.
The ticket builder feature in this Lotto Spot app is like a selection slip on your smartphone. The Ticket Builder feature allows you to build tickets for LOTTO MAX, LOTTO 6/49 and DAILY GRAND using your mobile device. Once complete, the app generates a QR code that can be scanned at a retail location to print a ticket. Players using this feature will not have to use paper selection slips.
