It’s that time of the year when everyone starts to frantically buy Christmas lottery. It is a tradition that has been around for years and years and no one wants to be left out. It is usual that offices, gyms, coffee shops, supermarkets,etc. offer small participations and of course, hard core followers buy their own lucky numbers. There seems to be a general feeling that not buying one wherever you go could mean that you are left out in the biggest prize available (El gordo).
If you are not from Spain and would like to check out how big this is, you can watch our TV commercial from this year, which I don’t particularly like, and from the previous year (which was a masterpiece) – It seems the Spanish lottery has fallen into a Windows like type cycle, one good version and one bad version 😉 –
This year’s TV commercial:
The previous one:
The point is that many people end up with lots of number and they have to check to see if they have won a prize. Thanks to technology, this is easier as there are webpages where you can input all the numbers and see if you have scored a lucky one. The problem is that in the end you end up retyping the same numbers again and again. With all the technological advancements we have, and having such processing power in our pockets, there had to be a simpler way we could do better. So, I teamed up with Fran, who works with me at Wave and is an awesome Android developer, to build an App that would simplify this.
I took charge of the iOS version, and he worked on the Android counterpart. The result is a visually appealing App that allows you to:
- Check individual numbers easily
- Saves all your history of checked numbers so that you can check them all at once.
- Allows you to view the state of the raffle and all the prizes at just a glance.
The App is available on iOS and Android, and you can check it out today!
We hope you enjoy it and find it useful!

We wish you the best of luck and a very happy Christmas!
