Wharro, LLC Introduces First-Ever Scratch-Off and Storage Device for Lottery Tickets
MI – March 18, 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:
storage area for lottery related items like tickets of all sizes, betting slips
surface for scratching with patented “shavings gutter” to alleviate mess
playing edge to rest hands while scratching
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 www.mylotterymate.com or in select
retail outlets across the country where lottery tickets are sold.
