When I invested in Lottogopher’s (LOTO.C) pre-listing financing a few months back, I did so for one very important reason; I’d met the CEO and knew the guys doing the deal, and had a very high opinion of both. The idea was strong, but the people necessary to roll it out properly were there, which made my decision to get in a total gimme.

And I said so publicly, stating in a piece I did about the opportunity, “It’s going public and soon. Eyes open, powder dry.”

If you got in when I did as a result of what I wrote, you’re welcome, because we’re on a five-bagger so far, and that may continue upwards tomorrow with the news the company has just secured Kevin Harrington, one of the original gang from TV’s Shark Tank, as a new director of the company.

Here’s Harrington at work:

And here’s what he has to say about Lottogopher.

Harrington is considered the inventor of the infomercial, and has launched over 500 products with more than %5 billion in sales globally. He took Quantum International (QTM:NYSE) from $1 to $20 per share, and Celsius (CELH:NASDAQ) from $0.25 to $4.40.

But neither of those deals matter here; what matters is, this company just got a five-star, five tool, celebrity tech entrepreneur to front for it.

The company recently surged in value on the back of a large Powerball jackpot that turned out to be the 10th largest in US history, but if this new hire doesn’t put a zero on LOTO’s current $39 million market cap, I don’t know what will. It’s go time.
