Alma: The Banking App with Lottery Excitement
We started by asking people on their thoughts about banking and the lottery. We surveyed 170 individuals, and what we discovered gave us a purpose.
Most were using banking giants like Bank of America, Chase, or Wells Fargo. But the real surprise? The majority played the lottery regularly, with an average annual spend of over $1000, which is people’s largest expense after housing, taxes, transportation, and groceries.
This is how Alma came to be, to empower people to take control of their financial well-being and have fun in the process.
Why? Playing the lottery is exhilarating, and one of the favorite games that people enjoy. In contrast, the banking experience is dependable but lacks excitement.
The dream of winning the lottery, combined with the frustration of losing money on tickets every week, can be discouraging. Nonetheless, people continue to tap into their savings accounts to spend regularly on lottery retailers. What if we combined the best aspects of banking and the lottery to create a mobile banking app that's not only secure but also fun? So we created a Lottery-Thrill App that offers a debit card, saving options and free tickets for cash prizes every week.
Why buy Powerball tickets when you can earn lottery-themed tickets for free with everyday purchases using your Alma debit card?
Alma took the best of both worlds to create a fun and easy-to-use app that helps you save and win money.
The Alma team, lovingly known as "Almonds," consists of professionals from Meta, Zynga, Nerdwallet, Nextdoor, Aspiration, and Yahoo, and we're proudly backed by top venture capital investors, including Y Combinator.
Our competitors focus on savings, we understand the thrill of the game and the aspirations of lottery players. We make the process of getting your winnings more enjoyable, more secure, and more rewarding. Alma offers a unique blend of fun and trust.
