Gamblers in Sweden and Australia will now be able to bet on the outcome of draws and get the latest results on the app.
Lottoland CEO Nigel Birrell said: “We are very excited that the Lottoland app is becoming more readily available to Android users and anyone using the Google Play Store. A significant percentage of the population own Android smartphones and a huge 85% of the app market is maintained by Android, so this is definitely a reason to celebrate.
«We know a large portion of Lottoland users find and communicate with us via mobile devices, and we can’t wait to see how these new audiences in Sweden and Australia get on.”
