Hi everyone! I’m one of the makers of Yotta (https://withyotta.com) along with @bendoyle. How our app works: - 🔒 Save money in an FDIC insured account - ☝️ For every $25 you save, you get a recurring ticket into our weekly random number drawings with chances to win prizes ranging from $0.10 to the $10 million jackpot - 📈 Even if you don’t win a prize, you still get paid over 2x the national average on your savings. - 💸 On average, inclusive of prizes, the return on your savings is competitive with the highest yielding online savings accounts on the market. - 😎 100% free. No fees. Yotta's mission is to help millions of Americans become more financially secure. 40% of Americans can’t come up with $400 an emergency, yet the average household spends over $640 every year on the lottery. People buy too many lottery tickets and don’t save enough because human nature makes it difficult to adopt habits we know are healthy in the long-run but painful in the short run. We are giving people a way to scratch that lottery itch and get instant gratification from saving, while building a positive behavior that will make them stronger in the long run. Yotta not only makes saving fun and instantly gratifying, but it’s also a smart way to save. By partnering with online banks, we can provide a rate of return on savings competitive with the highest yielding options on the market. In the UK, there is a product called Premium Bonds (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pr...), which is similar to Yotta. Over 30 million British people save through Premium Bonds, which has over $100 billion in deposits. Yotta is backed by Y Combinator and two of Bloomberg’s “50 Most Influential” in Global Finance. We would love your feedback on the product. Let us know what you like and what we can improve! Use the invite code “PHUNT1” for 100 free tickets when you sign up.

@bendoyle @adammoelis amazing- thanks champions!
This is a good example of product that combines two things that have nothing to do with each other. As a saving account you can get much better rates in banks like Ally. If you into gambling just buy a lottery ticket. I really don't see the connection here. It does two things in a mediocre way instead of one thing in a good way.
@sagivo i agree with you. This is another stupid marketing game :(
@sagivo Especially with these odds... Odd of getting the 10M => 1:3,277,899,625 For comparison (source: Wikipedia): Odds of Winning Jackpot EuroMillions 1 : 139,838,160 PowerBall (US) 1 : 292,201,338
@sagivo @euro_mist We provide the same expected value as an Ally. Actually even better right now. But in the long run, we want our expected value to be competitive with the highest yielding accounts, so you're not losing anything on an EV basis with us
@sagivo @lgerbeaux Our expected value is higher than a lottery ticket. The EV on a lottery ticket is a loss of 52 cents per dollar you put in. With the lottery you pay for your ticket. With us, you save money and get a ticket. You can't lose anything. One is risky and the other is risk-less, so you can't just compare the prizes without looking at what you risk. You also have to factor in other prizes, not just the jackpot. While the $10 million prize is unlikely on a per ticket basis (but you can get more tickets by saving), there are lots of other prize tiers
Premium bonds are a very well known and established way of saving over here in the UK. Didn't realise this wasn't something not more widely known or used in other countries like the US.
@ejsnowdon Yeah it's interesting how behind the U.S is on this given how massively popular these types of programs have been in other countries. Almost no one has heard of Premium Bonds in the U.S
@adammoelis mind blown. Congrats on bringing them to a new audience!

Great product. Offers a better rate than my current savings account with potential for even more upside. Feels very secure and it’s fun to check my numbers daily.
