Employee Testimonials


I have a ton of flexibility and creative freedom in the work I get to do. These are the kinds of projects I was hoping to work on from the beginning! I feel like my ideas are well-received and people genuinely listen.


I joined early on, when there were only 6 of us, and knew nothing about the lottery industry. It's exciting because there is no roadmap for the problem we're trying to solve. It's a unique opportunity and challenge-nothing fazes us!


Every day is a new challenge. When I arrive in the morning, I can't wait to work with these smart, driven people. When people are truly passionate about your company and your product, it validates everything you're working on.
