COLLECT 'N WIN

ABOUT THE APP

Collect 'N Win is a multi-platform mobile application that allows players to convert their Powerball tickets into symbols. When they collect enough symbols to complete a game card, they earn an entry into one of the second chance drawings to win a trip on the Power Cruise. Alchemy3 developed the app for both iOS devices and Android. It uses a scanner module to provide a convenient way for players to collect symbols by scanning the existing Powerball ticket barcode. In addition to the mobile apps, a web application is available to accept manual ticket entries for anyone who doesn't have a mobile device.

Player Experience

The design of the Collect 'N Win app will have a seamless player experience that will leverage convenience features to make scanning tickets and receiving entries a simple process. Once a player is registered they can easily perform the following features:

    Scan Powerball Tickets
    Game Cards
    Prizes and Draw Schedule
    Tickets Entered
    Official Rules
    How to Play
    FAQs

Registration

When players download the Power Cruise mobile app they will be asked to register or sign in. New players will register in their state or through their local player’s club. Players can register for more than one state but will only receive symbols for Powerball tickets purchased within the appropriate jurisdiction.

Cards/Symbols/Entries

Once registered, player can start entering tickets and collecting symbols. Each game card is made up of five eligible symbols (a sixth “free” symbol of the lottery’s logo will be pre-populated in each game card). There will be three game cards available for every player. Each scanned ticket will randomly generate either 2, 4, 6 or 10 random symbols that will populate in the available symbols across the three cards. Once a game card is filled with all five symbols it is automatically entered into the drawing. The card is then cleared and open to start collecting symbols toward additional entries. Note: The app will search for a card that is closest to completion in need of the symbol generated and assign the symbol to that open position.

DRAW SUPPORT

Alchemy3 has supported a number of lotteries by using our certified RNG to select the winners and alternates. An independent auditor can view all draw procedures if required by a lottery. After the selection process is complete, Alcehmy3 will provide winner information to each lottery to authenticate the winners. Winners will be notified by Alchemy3 or lottery officials to start the fulfillment and travel arrangement process. All W2-G’s will be process as required by federal and state laws based on the direction of each lottery.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Collect 'N Win

No - All symbols are weighted equally based on what symbols are open across the three cards.
A3 has designed the Power Cruise promotion to award symbols randomly regardless of the purchase price of the Powerball wager.
