Results for EuroMillions App Review
There are few things more convenient if you are an avid lottery player than being able to check your tickets while on the go. For this reason, lottery result applications have expanded massively across the Google Play Store. In this Results for EuroMillions Android app review, we will look at one specific app that has been developed for this purpose and what it has to offer and how well it performs.
The main feature offered by Results for EuroMillions is the ability to see the latest draw results for EuroMillions. This feature is expanded upon by the ability to check your tickets against the draws so that you can see if you have any winning tickets.
To do this, you will need to manually enter in your ticket numbers into the application. This is easily done by navigating to the Tickets tab on the home screen. Once there, you will be able to enter a ticket and all the information relating to it. This information includes a ticket description, which days the ticket is valid on, what dates the ticket is valid from and until, what UK Millionaire Maker code you would like to assign to the ticket, and finally, the numbers and rows on the ticket.
When selecting your numbers, you will be greeted by a neat screen with all the number displayed. You simply need to tap each number that corresponds with your ticket, and then tap the tick icon in the right-hand corner of the top of the screen.
Your active tickets will then be displayed neatly underneath each other on your tickets home screen. Tickets that expire soonest will be displayed at the top of the list. Each ticket will show you what dates the ticket is valid for, whether the subscription (or ticket) is still active, and whether there are any winnings available to be claimed on the ticket.
Results for EuroMillions offers a small number of additional features. These include:
- Random Number Generator: While this feature may be slightly hidden, it is a great feature to make use of. When entering in your ticket numbers while adding a new ticket, you will see a small dice icon next to the “Accept” tick icon at the top of your screen. If you tap on these dice, the app will randomly select numbers for you. The algorithm used to randomize these selections is surprisingly good and, in several tests, performed well in terms of not repeating too many numbers.
- Draw History: When launching the application, the first screen that you will encounter is the draw screen. This screen not only shows you the date of the next draw and the estimated jackpot for it, but also a full draw history of past results. The length of displayed history is customizable in the settings menu of the application, which can be accessed by tapping the three vertical dots at the top of the screen.
- Draw Information: When clicking on any of the draw history entries, you will be taken to the draw information screen for that draw. This screen displays the winning numbers, the UK Millionaire Maker code, and a prize breakdown table that shows the winning amount for certain number matches and how many people won that amount. We have long maintained that this is an essential feature for a results app, and it automatically raises this one's score.
- Country Selection: Selecting your country is something that is required the first time that you launch Results for EuroMillions. This personalizes the results that you receive (i.e. if your selected country is Ireland, you will also receive results for Euro Millions Plus and the Irish Raffle) and changes the default currency that jackpots are displayed in based on your location. If you would like to change your country later, all that is needed is to amend it using the right-hand menu.
Location & Lotteries Available
As you may have guessed from the name, the only supported lottery is EuroMillions. However, variations of EuroMillions (such as EuroMillions Plus and Irish Raffle which have already mentioned) are also supported depending on your location and what is applicable to you.
User Interface & Usability
The design of the interface is modern, and it is easy to use. The app’s main features are split evenly between two main tabs that easily accessible and can be quickly navigated. The colouring in the app is subtle, easy on the eyes, and a pleasure to look at.
Doing anything in the app is seamless and smooth, and the app responds well to user input. It is also clear that the developer worked to modern standards, considering that the app supports full-view mode by default.
The one thing that works against an otherwise great app is the ads system. While the small banner ads that are visible at the bottom of each screen are acceptable and unobtrusive, the full-screen ads that appear between app screens are annoying and too frequent.
These full-screen ads run on a timer of 10 to 15 seconds before they can be dismissed and could easily irritate you while waiting to get to the next screen. However, while we are not a fan of these ads, we do understand that a decent amount of development went into making a great app and the ads are a way for the developers to be rewarded for their work.
Conclusion – Results for EuroMillions Review
Results for EuroMillions is a great application to have installed if you are looking to automatically check your tickets against the latest draw results. With a great UI and a decent set of features, the fact that there is an annoying ad system can generally be overlooked if you weigh the pros against the cons, but the ads might be too much for people who want to use the app on a daily basis.
