Canton, MI (PRWEB) March 20, 2008
Wharro, LLC announced today the launch of Lottery Mate, a new product that alleviates the shavings mess of scratch-off instant tickets and provides convenient storage of lottery related items. The Lottery Mate provides an innovative solution to an industry where Scratch-Offs, Instant Tickets and Scratchers are sold at over 240,000 lottery retailers in the U.S. alone with sales of $29 Billion a year.
The Lottery Mate has a large, hard surface on which to scratch off tickets. Its unique design allows shavings to empty into a sealed gutter where they are stored inside the unit until emptied, eliminating the mess of shavings on car seats, couches, tables, or anywhere scratch-off tickets are played.
"As a scratch-off player myself, I got tired of the mess from shavings, always having to search for a hard surface to play my tickets and constant worry of misplacing potentially winning tickets," says Wharro CEO Rick Schacht. "The Lottery Mate is for scratch-off players who want a place to enjoy scratch tickets without the usual hassles."
The Lottery Mate's unique design eliminates messy shavings, but also comes with all of the other features that make scratch-off playing more convenient, including:
- Large storage area for lottery related items like tickets of all sizes, betting slips and pencil
- Hard surface for scratching with patented "shavings gutter" to alleviate mess
- Lucky coin holder
- Comfortable playing edge to rest hands while scratching
After receiving the Lottery Mate as a gift, Jeff Kennedy of Ann Arbor proclaimed, "It's about time someone came up with something like this for us lottery players. Now I have a place to play and store all of my tickets, and I don't have to deal with messy shavings anymore. I always use it, even when I'm playing only one or two instant tickets."
Lottery Mate is available online at http://www.mylotterymate.com or in select retail outlets across the country where lottery tickets are sold.
