Listed on the ASX since 1999

In 2000, Jumbo sold its first lottery ticket on the internet and witnessed a dramatic rise in popularity due to the convenience of buying tickets online.

Customers were initially attracted to the security of never losing a ticket and the convenience of automatic number checking, prize payments and auto-play.

In 2012, Jumbo released a lottery app for the iPhone and a new transition began driven by the convenience of mobile lotteries.

This was followed by further innovations such as features for the Apple watch, Google Voice and most recently, Lotto Party which is designed to promote social group play of the lottery, appealing to both younger and older

Jumbo operates the popular website www.ozlotteries.com in Australia under agreements with Tabcorp (ASX:TAH).

Using technology and internet marketing effectively

Jumbo has proven its ability to open up new lottery markets with its technology and internet marketing initiatives that have brought lotteries to new demographics via the internet.
