WBBM Newsradio’s Cisco Cotto
With the same technology that’s used by banks to photograph checks and direct-deposit them from the comfort of a well-lit room, the LottoLotto corporation offers devoted but neglectful players a way to find out if an old ticket they’ve left in seat cushions or utility drawers actually won or to get an alert if the current day’s investment in pipe dreams manages to strike even the most modest of gushers. Cisco Cotto’s social utility includes making winners winners, and one would hope reducing lines at the convenience store during lunch hour, to make vice simpler for sinners, and to subtly indicate the essential decadence of both gambling at apps design and the desperate pandering of contemporary legacy media.
