Sometimes tix don’t scan!The spin wheel doesn’t show!I won free plays for Mega & Powerball,when I try to redeem them they say already redeemed🤦🏽‍♀️I called the # that comes up when you’ve scanned $20 in tix!They’re not much help,they say it’s a glitch with NYL not SpinNWin!This $20 limit needs to be raised to at least $25!I mean there’s no limit on what we spend playing #’s a day!I can go on & on but I think u got the message!

A friend told me about scanning tickets and I’ve been scanning ever since. I didn’t know I won a $50 gift certificate because I was looking for something else. I used it to purchase books from Barnes and noble. I was glad for that because it’s something tangible. Of all the spins I get, I have yet to win on either offerings. Info appreciate the free tickets though. New York State is getting MORE money from the extra take five and power ball drawings so I don’t see why they’ve not upped the ticket entries from $20 to at least $50!!!!! You have to enter a zillion tickets before you spin but I find when you enter fifty cent tickets you get better chances to spin. I get at leaST Two spins which is cool. Do instead of trashing those tickets, just enter them. Waiting for my new books to arrive!

I’ve been using this app for a really long time so for the fact that certain bugs have never been fixed blows my mind. 1. Stop making us put user name and password each time - at least have it save the user name so we only have to put the password. Try to integrate it with Face ID 2. I see the frustration with some other reviews of scanning many losing tickets and never get anything. Why don’t you at least give a free draw ticket like some of the old lottery apps used to 3. Why do you have a promotion on the drop down to enter tickets but then when you scan it tells you the promotion ended. Remove the promotion if that is the case 4. Your layout of the cards is horrible you have to keep scrolling up and down to see what is getting punched because it doesn’t all fit on the screen.

Good site just needs to
Update quicker and make the scanner function better. Mine works for like one or two draw tickets then stops reading for some reason. I always have t type them in. Interestingly it does very well scanning scratch tickets. Also, the app needs to update at the same time as the website. Right now the My Lottery Dream Home 2nd Chance is only showing on the website, so I have to enter tickets there. I’d much rather use the app but the app is not showing it yet and there are no current updates. We are already 2 weeks into this promo. I’m trying to win….. Other than that, I enjoy the app very much.

Several problems with the update for the new promotions.
There are several issues with this app as it relates to the new promotions announced recently. First, there is still a splash screen saying updated app not yet available, but several seconds later, it goes into the new app. Second, the login screen is not laid out well and won’t scale properly to my iPhone 11 Pro. The app also won’t save the login info for future sessions. Third, the app forces an entry type choice each time. It should retain last choice until changed by user. Fourth, the scanning function keeps asking for permission for camera with each ticket. It needs to save the permission for all entries. Fifth, the scanner doesn’t even show the item being scanned so I have no idea where I should aim the crosshairs. Fix these issues ASAP.

Great concept, poor execution
Giving lottery players a second chance to win with losing tickets is a great idea. And I know when you’re dealing with technology, that there are “bugs” that have to be worked out. But in a day and age where we’re able to send Rovers to Mars, it absolutely blows my mind as to how the NY Lottery can roll out an app with so many problems! I’m experiencing the same problems as many of the others that wrote reviews. They are: Spin Wheel doesn’t download, FAQ won’t download and How to Play won’t download. EVER!! I don’t know how the “Cards” work when scanning tickets. How many completed “Cards” does one need to obtain or win certain prizes. I can go on and on and on. Again, great concept, but I’m sorry, very poorly executed.

App needs updated BADLY!!!!! The app has looked the same, and no changes in a number of years. Trying to scan draw tickets the scanner never scanned usually like the scanners in the store to scan tickets. They don’t work. They also need updated badly because those machines are years and years and years old. With this app, always have to type the number of the ticket in manually. As much money as the New York lottery, makes do a little bit better and make the app a little more fun exciting instead of silent. Other states lottery apps, make exciting noises when you have won some and well scanning. Also, EVERY-TIME I close out the app, It logs me out, snd i have re-log bag in with my email and password.

Needs Work
I completely agree with the other review...great concept, poor execution! The app doesn’t provide much help in explaining how the program works...or what to do if you are an “instant winner”. The scanning of tickets rarely works!!! I find myself entering all my tickets and that is time consuming and unnecessary in this day and age of technology. The fact that there is a $20 limit each day for entering tickets is also problematic and should be increased. While initially very excited about this app, our excitement has quickly dulled as a result of the many problems that exist. Hopefully the programmers will take notice of the user experiences and comments and make necessary changes. If that happens, this app has the potential to be awesome and fun to use! 🙏🏻

I would give this a five star, but I scan so much(less difficulty now) but I haven’t win that $5000 cash yet, still waiting for that call/email to get something for all my entries.... but overall this app is good. It helps you resist grabbing your money and spend it at the retail store. Also it gives you free ticket to play. Not bad at all, but the app does crashes a lot like other user have mention, the worse is getting kick out and logging in again. Other than that, this is a good app to use if you a play lotto often. Cross your finger and pray for me guys, I need money!!!!

Buggy app
I have been using this app, for about a month. I have issues, like others, with the scanner reading tickets, and the spin wheel, acting right. I have won a few quick pick tickets, and was able to redeem them. It is best to get a screenshot, then flip the picture to the side, so it’s small enough for the machines to read. Anyhow, now I was booted out, and asked to sign in again, and the app won’t open after that. Please fix the bugs. Thank you.

I like it
Good app / promotion from the lottery. It feels good to get something back (free plays mega ball, powerball, take 5) for your losing tickets. I won 40+ free play tickets and 1 of the gift cards also. Hope the lottery does this promotion again at a later date. If you have trouble scanning try bending up the corners of your tickets slightly and also tap the “lightbulb” icon in the upper right to turn on the light.

It’s nice to have a second chance!!
It’s a great second chance game and lots of fun having a chance on losing tickets to get other prizes. But when the site is down or acting up it can be frustrating. Overall though it’s nice that they give us something of a second chance

Too many Bugs
This app could really be amazing but the there are two major problems. There are way too many bugged out glitches and by glitches I am referring to how long it takes to load up and the scanner is crappy. Also where is the cash or the plethora of free plays. If there were free plays that would be equivalent to cash. And I don’t mean quick pick free play either. I mean allow me to choose which free play and what game I’d like to play that free play in. Now that would drive an over abundance to this app and to play more lotto games.

Scanning is a pain
I like that I have other chances to win from my loser tickets (not that I’ve never won anything from any of these drawings). It can be a pain to enter tickets though, because the bar-code scanning feature really doesn’t work very well. Sometimes it takes me several minutes to scan a single barcode. And entering the ticket numbers is even worse, because the numbers are SO LONG!

I’m a single parent and I have been playing lottery since I was 18 years old. I’m 66 and still hoping to hit it big so I can make sure my kids and grandkids are ok in life when it’s time for me to leave this world. I would appreciate any help I could get. And keep yourselves and your families safe please.

Gee Last Night’s Tickets are not valid if....
I was all set to give this a 5 star rating, but when I tried to enter my tickets (on October 1st) from the night before(September 30th) just 12 hours ago, I couldn’t because they were not in the new month. Sorry, I think that is bogus. In this case, the tickets should be valid. If you are buying tickets and the new month is just 5 or 6 hours away, they should still be valid for entry, how bogus this rule is, really.

Cool app still needs working on
Won some free tix and a gift card. App needs work on scanning tickets, From December to maybe March I’ve been using pc to enter it manually (simply using number pad and enter, I find it faster entering than mobile). Just recently April it seems like it improved a little bit or maybe I’m just getting lucky scanning it. An advice, create an collect n win scratch off with prizes as a regular scratch off would . Some will prefer a scratch off instead the free ticket. On the spin wheel replace one of the mega millions with a $2 cash prize or a scratch off value of $2. Maybe winning some cash could make people wanna use that $2 to play more numbers/win 4. All in all I hope the promotion continues or start again sometime. Good luck to all.

I won $5000 finally.
I Didn’t believe in the app. Yes I won free tickets. Exp cash4life Take 5 The mega power ball. I also won the $50 monthly gift card. But I thought $5,000 Sweep was BS. But this February. I was emailed that i won. I sent in the necessary documents. And a real check for $5000 arrived. So grateful. So Yes. The collect n win is a real!!! Please bring back the free tickets/free spins.

Why bother?
I think why do I bother, you spend money and no one wins these second chance games. But here I am holding out hope with time on my hands. The other second chance game doesn’t pay out anymore, it did for a few short months, that was fun while it lasted. I think the lottery is rigged! There a no big winners in western New York, just NYC areas.

Great Concept
Pros; I love the fact that you can scan losing tickets without having to type in the the 18 digits. Cons: your spin and win doesn’t appear so you have no idea what you won until you go into coupons. Sometimes your scanner doesn’t work. Unable to view FAQ. Hope this gets resolved soon

Hardly nothing works
The spin wheel never loads, the tickets when supposedly won always says “Used” when I go to redeem them, The scanning practically never works, you’d think that with this app you’ll get much more “Not happening” Now it is another chance to win what u didn’t the first time.

Good but need improvement
The app is okay but there is a need for improvements with scanning and other thing that many of the people are saying. Is this a scam or what. Why limit scanning to 20 rather that going unlimited or at least 50.

Great game when I first started playing I would get many chances to spin the wheel and get free lottery tickets but since the beginning of the year everything has changed I’ve hardly had any chances to spin Peter even though I still enter the maximum $20 in tickets a day I don’t know what you guys did but you definitely changed something

Stop $20 limit should be unlimited
I think it’s a great idea just don’t understand why $20 is the limit maybe it should allow you to win other scratch off‘s quick pics think something should also be done with mega and Powerball and take five

Love - Love - The app. I’ve gotten a few free tickets which gave me more winning tickets. As for the scanner not working sometimes- it has to do with time you scanned. If you scan in the a.m then do the same time. If you do the p.m then scan the same time and so on.

Having a second chance at winning prizes with a chance of winning a Mega, Powerball, or take 5 jackpot is so exciting. With take 5, I've gotten 3 numbers over 20 times since I started using this app! I hope they add Cash for Life, Lotto & Jackpot.

Website needs some big improvement.
This website does not let you move to other game ticket when you click on enter tickets. It keeps taking you back to the same screen. If you enter a scratch off ticket and you decide to enter a regular lottery ticket, it doesn’t give you the option to do it. I see myself login out and login back in to enter individual tickets. Please fix this issue.

Using the app is kind of a pain as it will not remember my login credentials, so I have to look up my password every time I log in. The only saving grace is that I can scan tickets in quickly. Not significantly better than just logging in with a web browser and manually entering the ticket numbers.

I have tried to scan my tickets over and over, to no avail when lining my tickets to the scanner it kicks me out and says it didn’t read the barcode. This app is not consistent at all and I will be uninstalling as of now. Before I go the example you have of how to scan your ticket does not match with what I have when I go to scan.

The app frequently glitches such as freezing and not opening like last evening. Also it takes too much time to enter each ticket. The only positive is that any Lotto ticket for designated month can be used versus only using Numbers or Win 4 tickets.
