Lottery.com’s Business Operations and Challenges
Lottery.com’s business operations revolve around three main revenue streams: offering the platform through the Lottery.com app and website, providing a business-to-business application programming interface (API) for its platform, and delivering global lottery data to commercial digital subscribers. Despite these revenue streams, the company has struggled to maintain its financial standing during the quarter.
As per the report, the company had a loss from operations of $3.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. To improve its financial position, Lottery.com is raising capital through private placements of common stock, preferred stock offerings, and issuances of debt and convertible debt. However, there is no guarantee that these fundraising efforts will be enough to keep the company afloat.
