Magayo Lotto App Review
Finding a lottery results app that is right for you can sometimes be a daunting task. There are many apps on the Google Play Store that all claim to bring something fresh to your lottery experience and to help you in new and improved ways. One app that is trying to find its place in the chaos is Magayo Lotto. In this Magayo Lotto Android App review, we will look at how well this app works and what its features are.
The first and foremost feature of Magayo Lotto is to work as a lottery results app. This allows you to access the results of your favourite lottery quickly and easily no matter where you may find yourself.
Accessing the results of your chosen lottery is relatively simple. The first thing that you will need to do is tell the app which lottery you would like to view the results of. This is easily done by tapping on the Select Game button that is visible on the home screen when launching the app. This will bring up a screen which features a drop-down list of supported lotteries (listed below). You will need to scroll through the list to find your selected lottery, which is made easy by the fact that the list is categorized by country. Once you have found your lottery, you will simply need to tap on it to select it as the lottery you would like the app to use when displaying results.
Once you have selected your lottery, you will need to navigate back to the home screen by tapping on the arrow located in the top left-hand corner of your screen. This takes you back to the home screen. From here all that you need to do is tap on View Results. The app will then display the latest draw results underneath the date that the draw took place.
Swiping left or right will allow you to navigate to past draw results. Unfortunately, the free version of the app only allows you to view the last three draw results. If you would like to view more results (and unlock additional features discussed below), you will need to purchase the pro edition of the application. This can by done by purchasing a subscription to the app which ranges from monthly (priced at $8.99) to annually (priced at $75.52). Alternatively, you may purchase the app outright for a one-time fee of $88.99—which we feel is very pricey for just a results application since they’re generally a dime a dozen on app stores.
Magayo Lotto offers two select additional features that are all limited in the free edition and require you to upgrade to the pro edition to make full use of. These features are:
- View Statistics: The statistics function of the app will show you the statistics for each number that is used in your selected lottery. Unfortunately, the only statistic available for each number is how many times they have been drawn. And in the free version these statistics are limited to data obtained only from draws that occurred in the current year.
- Generate Tickets: As with most of the best lottery apps, Magayo Lotto also includes a random number generator. This feature generates between 10 and 45 lines of randomly generated number sequences at a time—dependant on what lottery you have selected. The app states that you will have access to ‘recommended balls’ if you purchase the pro edition and displays a percentage of how much more likely the generated numbers will be of winning if using these ‘recommended balls.’ However, this sounds like a bunch of hooey to us since there’s absolutely no way to know what numbers will be drawn—unless the developer is psychic, which we highly doubt.
That said, the number generator uses a surprisingly good randomization algorithm—even in the free version of the app. In a number of line generations we did not find many repetitions, and there was a good mix of numbers from our chosen lottery’s number range.
Location & Lotteries Available
Magayo Lotto supports over 150 international lotteries. As stated above, these are sorted according to the country that they occur in and then placed in alphabetical order according to the country name. All the international favourites, such as US Powerball and Mega Millions, are supported.
User Interface & Usability
The app is easy to use and to find your way around in. Navigation is mainly handled by the large buttons on the home screen that allow you to quickly select the option that you are looking for. There is also a hamburger menu that is in the top right-hand side of the screen. This menu is slightly redundant because it offers the same options as the home screen with the addition of the About and Help tabs.
The app runs natively in full-view mode on modern devices and works well on screens that have a dewdrop front-facing camera with an infinity display. Installing at just over 5 MB, the app also looks good despite its simple colours and plain backgrounds.
Surprisingly, the app does not have any ad presence—even when using the free version. The app does, however, encourage you to upgrade to the pro edition each time you reach one of the limits, such as trying to see more than three of the latest draw results, of the free version.
Conclusion – Magayo Lotto Review
As far as lottery result applications go, Magayo Lotto is able to hold its own. With a good design, decent extras, and a massive list of supported lotteries, it is easy to choose this app when looking for a results companion. That being said, the limitations are present, and the price-tag for the app is pretty outrageous. Luckily, this is made up for by the fact that there are no ads when using the free version. And for that, we appreciate the developers’ effort in making a stable and user-friendly app.
