A Phone application for scratch off lottery tickets on smartphones

THE SOLUTION

Scratch off Lotto tickets have always been a thriving industry with low overhead cost. By transfering the idea to the virtual world (IE: a smartphone app) it allows costs to be lowered while accessing a larger base of potential consumers. Various styles of games would be available and would work exactly like a traditional scratch off ticket. Serial numbers given to each ticket would allow for easy tracking of "winning tickets" The idea requires very little startup cost and has the potential to generate large profits.

Thank you for the comment, I dont think security would be that big of a problem, Tix could be purchased securly much how people buy a song from amazon and have it downloaded to their phone.

Trust me. I am nationally recognized in Cyber Security, and this would be quite a task. I'm not saying that this can't be done, I'm just saying you need to approach this from a perspective more akin to online banking than buying MP3s from amazon.

Security would be monimental as well as perception. Plus, like it or not you actually pair down the number of available participants. I think to your credit , making a virtual purchase makes it easier then standing in line to buy a scratch off if that's what you mean
