Digital experiences provider mkodo has released an upgrade of the British Columbia Lottery Corporation’s official app which now offers customers the functionality to purchase and check lottery tickets.

Following an extensive update, the native iOS app is now fully transactional so customers can register, login, deposit funds, withdraw funds and purchase lottery tickets for national and regional games.

Players can now also scan retail tickets to instantly see if they are a winner.

The fully iOS native app is compliant with Apple’s updated guidelines which requires apps to be standalone and sufficiently different from a Safari browsing experience.

Stuart Godfree, managing director and co-founder of mkodo, said: “We first launched BCLC’s app over a year ago, but customers have been regularly asking to have the functionality of easily purchasing lottery tickets via mobile and we are thrilled to now be able to offer BCLC’s customers this option. We hope they enjoy the new experience.”
