How to play lotto by sms

The LocusPlay application does not need to be installed directly as an application onto a customer’s mobile phone in order for them to play the lottery. They can also play by means of SMS betting. Registered users simply need to send a SMS in a predefined format to the correct number in order to place a bet. The LocusPlay system recognizes the customer and verifies that he has the necessary credit balance available to place the bet, then executes the bet and allows the customer to play with the chosen numbers. A SMS receipt is then returned to the consumer with the transaction number. The advantage of SMS betting is that customers never need to go to an on-site location to play the lottery, nor do they need an expensive Smartphone – any phone will work for SMS betting. They can check their transactions online via the internet if they wish, but internet connectivity is not required in order to play.

SMS betting allows customers to place bets and get their lottery ticket that is delivered through SMS.
