Title: LOGISTICS METHODS FOR PORTABLE, MOBILE PROCESSING OF LOTTERY AND CONTEST TICKETS
Abstract:
A method for portable Iottery ticket sales and redemptions by mobile vendors is provided wherein the vendor have an existing credit or debit card processing interchange. The vendor is provided with a portable local processor having a memory, and with a local printer connected to the local processor. The local processor is in wireless communication with a network. A bank identification number (BIN) is assigned to lottery tickets sold or redeemed by the vendor that is unique to Iottery tickets in the vendor's existing credit or debit card processing interchange. The unique Iottery BIN is also associated with a Iottery data blob provided on the Iottery ticket. The BIN and Iottery data blob are entered into the vendor's existing credit or debit card barcode protocol to initiate transfer of the lottery data to a Iottery central site via the interchange, wherein a processor within the interchange recognizes the unique Iottery BIN and initiates special routing to and further processing of the Iottery data at the Iottery central site outside of the interchange's debit or credit card data transfer and processing procedures.
