Last time, I briefly introduced this personal project, the MauritiusLoto.com. Smoothly running on a stable version since the past weeks, I hereby officially launch the site, made possible with the helping hands of a small team and some beta testers (including the first users). Before continuing, I thank everyone who tried the web site and sent suggestions/bugs/critics. Thank you!
How does it work?
The objective behind the site is very straight forward.
After the official results announcement on the television (and radio), many players actually search the web for the loto results. Once you get hold of the results (either on the web or through tv/radio), you now need to manually check each combination of numbers. That can be pretty tedious especially if you played several times.
Well, MauritiusLoto.com will now take care of everything.
All that you need to do is :
1. To enter the numbers onto the site and once the results are proclaimed.
2. Check your mail after results announcement!
A sample mail goes as follows :
The algorithms running behind MauritiusLoto.com will first of all check if you have played any combinations right (either 3,4,5 or 6 numbers) and then mail you the winning combinations as well as any number combinations played right.
You can also choose number combinations saved for previous weeks, receive mail alerts even if you have not played and in a near future, connect via your Facebook account.
Why should you register to use it?
If you don’t register, to which email address will we send you the results? Additionally, the registration process ensures that you do not enter somebody’s else email address onto the site.
About the project
The project was in my mind since months already but due to work commitment, I have been able to kick start the project only in late December. Since then, a tiny team was set up to write the bits and pieces of code which make up the whole site. We have finally been able to put a first version live in February 2012 and we improved the site from the feedback gathered from the first users.
We currently have only a basic version of the site running live on MauritiusLoto.com. However, we have quite a few features that we hope to be able to include in the next few weeks. Some of these are :
- Integrate Facebook social plugins into the site
- SMS for registration and submitting/receiving numbers
- Mobile application (Iphone/Android)
- Some boring stuff like Trend analysis and statistics
Being a Mauritian, we all know that we love free stuffs. We guarantee you that the usage of the web site will always be free.
You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter for announcements regarding the site as well as results details. To be part of the project, click here to proceed to the web site to register yourself and remember, verifying your loto combinations will never be so simple!
