New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy visited Lotto.com’s headquarters in Jersey City recently for a private tour of the company’s operations and to address Lotto.com’s employees.
The tech company developed the first digital platform for ordering lottery tickets on any device, with no app download or deposit required. Lotto.com continues to add high-tech jobs in New Jersey and provides an easy way for New Jersey residents to order lottery tickets from anywhere in the state at any time.
“Lotto.com is exactly the sort of company that is in the crosshairs of our economic development aspirations,” Murphy said. “You are exactly the kind of company that we are relentlessly focused on getting here, birthing here and growing here.”
“It was an honor to have Gov. Murphy visit Lotto.com’s headquarters in Jersey City,” Thomas Metzger, CEO of Lotto.com, stated. “Gov. Murphy helped make the dream of Lotto.com become a reality.”
Lotto.com opened its first office during the pandemic in June 2020. Since then, it has grown from four employees to almost 100 nationwide, the vast majority of which are based in the Garden State.
Online operations for the company launched in the Garden State in June 2021. The company’s growth has not stopped here — the digital platform has already expanded into three other states this year — New York, Texas and Colorado — allowing players in these states an easy, safe and secure way to order tickets for their favorite lottery games.
The governor’s visit also comes on the heels of Lotto.com’s launch of a national advertising campaign titled “Welcome to WINever,” which can be seen in New Jersey, New York, Texas and Colorado.
